Abstract

Proposes that decisions on reward distribution are affected by preferences for various distributive principles and by the social context within which distribution takes place. Using a Chinese sample this relationship is tested. Identifies that the strength of preference for a particular distributive principle was a major predictor for a corresponding decision, however such influences were neutralised by secondary preferences for competing principles. Provides some insight into the Chinese psychology.
