When it is financially disadvantageous to bet for a stranger, a smaller proportion of individuals will do so when participating in a dictator game. Expectedly, when the desire to make money for oneself is high, individuals will bet significantly lower amounts of money for their game partner than when this desire is minimal. An examination of gender differences suggest that when considering selfish desires for money, females bet significantly greater amounts of money for a player than males even when self-motivated goals for money for oneself are high.
