Abstract

Past research has indicated that an abstract mindset activation leads to higher prosocial behaviour than a concrete mindset activation. In addition to exploring this relationship, we further examined the role of perceived cost as a mediator of the mindset-prosocial behaviour link. Participants completed mindset activation tasks and rated their perceived cost and prosocial behaviour. Results reconfirmed that an abstract mindset increased prosocial behaviour and further revealed that while the perceived cost was negatively correlated to prosocial behaviour, it did not emerge as a mediator of the mindset-prosocial behaviour link.
