Abstract

Intersubjective norm (values consensually perceived to be widely held in one’s group) is used to examine Kiasuism (literally “the fear of losing out”). Kiasu behavior’s intersubjective norm diverges from it’s actual popularity amongst participants (Study 1); and when intersubjective norm was manipulated, participants engaged in more (or less) kiasu behaviors in the expected direction (Study 2).
