People are conditional rule followers
Journal of Economic Psychology , Volume 85 - Issue 85 p. 1- 6
Experimental participants are more likely to follow an arbitrary rule the more others in their<br/>reference group do so as well. The effect is most pronounced for individuals who follow few rules<br/>when not knowing others’ behavior. Unlike what is observed for conditional cooperation,<br/>learning that only few others follow a rule does not reduce rule following.
