- A Theory of Mind (ToM) assessment is administered to subjects.
- One-shot Prisoner Dilemma game implemented to measure cooperation.
- Subjects with high ToM are less likely to cooperate.
Explanations for cooperation in Prisoner's Dilemma games have generated significant interest. While institutional explanations have offered considerable explanatory ability, a psychological measure of Theory of the Mind that measures an individual's ability to process social and emotional cognition offers new insights. Using this measure, we examine how it explains (un)cooperative behavior. We find that subjects who have higher ToM are less cooperative and extract higher payoffs.
