The role of tracking and tolerance in relationship among friends


, : The role of tracking and tolerance in relationship among friends. Evolution and Human Behavior 33(1): 17-25

Friendship is a core aspect of human social life. Friends form long-term, cooperative relationships, and provide material and emotional support for one another. Previous research in social psychology suggests that people prefer balanced relationships over unbalanced relationship with friends, but at the same time, friendship is defined by an absence of direct reciprocity and careful tracking of favors given and received. The goal of this study was to distinguish between differences in tracking and tolerance of imbalances among friends and strangers. We conducted parallel behavioral economic experiments in three different urban cultural settings, USA, Japan and China, in an effort.
