题目:Is It What You Say or How You Say It?

内容摘要:This study investigates the mechanisms driving the effectiveness of free-form communication in promoting cooperation within a sequential social dilemma game. We hypothesize that the self-constructing nature of free-form communication enhances the sincerity of messages and increases the disutility of dishonoring promises. Our experimental results demonstrate that free-form messages outperform both the restricted promises and a treatment wherein subjects can select and use previously constructed free-form messages. Interestingly, we find that selected free-form messages and restricted promises achieve similar levels of cooperation. We observe that free-form messages frequently incorporate promises and honesty, which contribute to increased cooperation, while threats do not promote cooperation. Our findings emphasize the crucial role of the self-constructed nature of free-form messages for promoting cooperation, exceeding the impact of message content when compared to restricted communication protocols.
