Abstract: A 2 x 2 study was conducted to investigate the effects of private and public self-awareness on the saliency of behavioral standards in the dictator game. The mirror manipulation was employed to heighten self-awareness, while the I-priming task was used to activate private self-awareness. It was expected and found that heightened public self-awareness leads to the increased saliency of moral standards (concern of fairness), and results in individuals offering significantly more money in the dictator game. Increasing private and public self-awareness together induced the most generous behavior. The implications of these results suggest the importance of specifying the aspect of self to be made aware of in self-awareness manipulations, and the interaction effects of private and public self-awareness.
