Humans are intuitively cooperative1. Humans are also capable of deliberation, which includes social comparison2, self-reflection3 and mental simulation of the future4. Does deliberation undermine or sustain cooperation? Some studies suggest that deliberation is positively associated with cooperation5, whereas other work indicates that deliberation (vis-à-vis intuition) impairs cooperation in social dilemmas6,7. Do some aspects of reasoning qualify whether deliberation sustains cooperation or… Expand

The cognitive foundations of cooperation
We conducted an experiment causally manipulating reliance on more intuitive vs. more deliberative behavior through time pressure and time delay. Our design uses a novel manipulation which relies onExpand
Wise Reasoning About the Future Is Associated With Adaptive Interpersonal Feelings After Relational Challenges
Two prospective studies examine how wise reasoning about an anticipated conflict interaction—intellectual humility, recognition of uncertainty and change, consideration and integration of differentExpand
Wisdom in Context

  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Perspectives on psychological science : a journal of the Association for Psychological Science
  • 2017
TLDR
Focus on contextual factors sheds new light on the processes underlying wise thought and its development, helps to integrate different approaches to studying wisdom, and has implications for measurement and development of wisdom-enhancing interventions. Expand
Coevolution between the cost of decision and the strategy contributes to the evolution of cooperation
TLDR
The main result of this study is that the introduction of the cost of decision contributes to the evolution of cooperation, although there are some differences in the extent of its contribution regarding the three types of sparse topology of connections. Expand
Wisdom in a complex world: A situated account of wise reasoning and its development
Social issues (e.g., partisan politics, economic decisions, interpersonal conflicts) often involve trade-offs, necessitating the consideration of multiple interests. Such issues do not have simpleExpand
Social class and wise reasoning about interpersonal conflicts across regions, persons and situations
TLDR
It is proposed that class is inversely related to a propensity for using wise reasoning in interpersonal situations, and that higher social class weighs individuals down by providing the ecological constraints that undermine wise reasoning about interpersonal affairs. Expand
A Social Heuristics Hypothesis for the Stag Hunt: Fast- and Slow-Thinking Hunters in the Lab
In this paper, we analyze the role of intuitive versus deliberative thinking in stag hunt games. To do so we, first, provide a conceptual framework predicting that, under the assumption that stag isExpand
Wisdom, Bias, and Balance: Toward a Process-Sensitive Measurement of Wisdom-Related Cognition
TLDR
Results of a large-scale psychometric investigation revealed that the novel Situated WIse Reasoning Scale (SWIS) is reliable and appears independent of psychological biases, whereas global wisdom reports are subject to such biases. Expand
Wisdom is a social-ecological rather than person-centric phenomenon.
TLDR
It is proposed that understanding the processes underlying practical wisdom requires a social-ecological framework, supported by emerging empirical insights, that is enriching the understanding and exploration of practical wisdom as a mental process and an ecological asset for societies at large. Expand
Response time in economic games reflects different types of decision conflict for prosocial and proself individuals
TLDR
It is found that contemplation of the risk of being exploited by others (social risk aversion) was partly responsible for making consistent prosocials (but not consistent proselfs) spend longer time in decision making and behave less prosocially. Expand

Cooperation, Fast and Slow
TLDR
This theory predicts that deliberation will undermine pure cooperation but not strategic cooperation, and reveals 17.3% more pure cooperation when intuition was promoted over deliberation, but no significant difference in strategic cooperation between more intuitive and more deliberative conditions. Expand
Spontaneous giving and calculated greed
TLDR
The cognitive basis of cooperative decision-making in humans using a dual-process framework is explored and it is proposed that cooperation is intuitive because cooperative heuristics are developed in daily life where cooperation is typically advantageous. Expand
Fast but not intuitive, slow but not reflective: Decision conflict drives reaction times in social dilemmas.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that RTs should not be interpreted as a direct proxy for the use of intuitive or reflective processes, and the effects of conflict and reflection in social decision making are dissociate. Expand

A Theory of Social Comparison Processes
Hypothesis I: There exists, in the human organism, a drive to evaluate his opinions and his abilities. While opinions and abilities may, at first glance, seem to be quite different things, there is aExpand
Cortical thickness of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex predicts strategic choices in economic games
TLDR
These findings demonstrate that participants’ intuitive choices in economic games are prosocial, and support the intuitive prosociality view by showing for the first time, to the authors' knowledge, that strategic reasoning and cortical thickness of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex were not related to giving in the UG but were negatively related toGiving in the DG.

Reward, punishment, and cooperation: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
This work proposes that rewards and punishments should both promote cooperation, and identifies 2 variables—cost of incentives and source of incentives—that are predicted to magnify the effectiveness of these incentives in promoting cooperation. Expand
Reasoning about social conflicts improves into old age
TLDR
It is shown that relative to young and middle-aged people, older people make more use of higher-order reasoning schemes that emphasize the need for multiple perspectives, allow for compromise, and recognize the limits of knowledge. Expand
A route to well-being: intelligence versus wise reasoning.
TLDR
With a random sample of Americans, it is found that wise reasoning is associated with greater life satisfaction, less negative affect, better social relationships, less depressive rumination, more positive versus negative words used in speech, and greater longevity. Expand
Boosting wisdom: distance from the self enhances wise reasoning, attitudes, and behavior.
TLDR
Whether psychological distance enhances wise reasoning, attitudes, and behavior under such circumstances as career prospects for the unemployed during an economic recession and anticipated societal changes associated with one's chosen candidate losing the 2008 U.S. Presidential election is examined.
