Измерение социального статуса в экспериментальных играх
The majority of social and economic interactions take place
between people of different social status. Age, position, income and other factors
affect the way people evaluate their position in the society. We investigate how self-estimation
of the social status is formed when an individual participates in an economic
experimental game. In our experiment subjects are set in pairs and play consequently
the dictator game, the trust game and the labor market (contract) game. After each
game we measure their subjective socioeconomic status using two different scales. We
show that participation in the dictator game affects the perception of one’s social status
to the greatest extent: the status of dictators is higher than the status of recipients.
Prescription of roles in other games does not have such an effect. Active behavior,
gender, income, etc. also affect the subjective status.
