Abstract：Generalized reciprocity is the phenomenon that individual treats others in the way which other people treat them in the past. By adopting Dictator’s Game in the current study, we investigated the influence from the dictator’s intention on responder’s generalized reciprocity. We found that (1) when the responder was given money more than half of the total, he would give another stranger more money in intended-behavior condition than unintended-behavior condition; otherwise, the results were on the opposite; (2) the responder in negative intention condition would gave fewer money to the stranger than positive and no intention conditions, while those in the latter two conditions were non-significantly differed. Current findings reveal the manipulation from intention information on generalized reciprocity, especially that negative intention impacts more effectively than positive intention does.
