Abstract: The  conflict  between  pro-social  and  self-serving  behaviour  is  a  widely  investigated topic in decision-making. Are people intuitively self-serving, suppressing  egoistic  urges  upon  self-reflection?  Or  are  people  intuitively  pro-social, giving in to self-serving desires only after contemplation? This paper uses  a  dual-process  framework  to  investigate  the  process  behind  cooperative  and altruistic behaviour. Through the use of difficult choices to induce decision fatigue  and  promote  intuitive  responses,  it  is  found  that  intuition  promotes  egoistic and selfish behaviour in decision-making. This is especially so for males. The  experiment  finding  conflicts  with  previous  literature  that  found  intuition  leads to more pro-social behaviour. In my discussion, I proposed some explanations to my results and reconcile the difference in findings.
