What type of person is prosocial?

Negative news tends to dominate the headlines, even though acts of human kindness and generosity occur frequently all over the world. Amidst thousands of studies that have been focused on human prosociality (e.g., cooperation, generosity), we still don’t fully understand the unique factors that contribute to the behavior of consistently prosocial individuals.

To explore these questions, we are planning to collaborate on a series of studies with research groups at the University of Miami and The University of Colorado Boulder.
