Article of the Week
Competition Involving Others Can Make People More Competitive Through ‘Competition Contagion’
A new study conducted by researchers at Cambridge Judge Business School found that the "mere awareness" of the existence of a competition impacts non-participants' decision-making. Notably, non-participants behave in a similar manner to participants. In one experiment, the researchers asked visitors to a German zoo whether they wanted to participate in a competition wherein the visitor who paid the highest entrance fee would win a prize. Those who were aware of the competition agreed to pay a higher entrance fee than those who were not aware of the competition.
