Finally, we found that division of labour was predicted by intra-pair differences in conscientiousness and social apathy. We measured apathy using the AMI by & , , , and (3/4) Manuscript
New preprint! We designed a collaborative short-term memory game that incentivised capacity-based division of labour with a reward scheme, but participants insisted on dividing equally! This mirrors equality bias in joint decision making. (1/4) Manuscript:
Division of labour biased towards equality amongst collaborators in dyadic short-term memory task
BONUS: Picture of the Digital Classroom at Lund University (where we collected our data), which has 25 (!) computers and eye trackers hooked up to the same network. Also, how pretty are the plots of our reward simulations?! (4/4) Manuscript:
In fact, people didn't even care about equal division! No correlation between disproportional labour division and collaboration ratings. Instead, behavioural stability (irrelevant for performance!) predicted collaboration ratings. (2/4) Manuscript:
Social cognition preprint! In a collaborative short-term memory game, participant pairs divided labour equally, not proportionally to individual capacities. They also valued task-irrelevant behavioural stability, and we find social apathy correlation.
