PULIDO-AVALOS, Lizbeth; RANGEL-BERNAL, Nora  y  ORTIZ-RUEDA, Gerardo. Effect of the contingency type on the verbal exchanges establishment and quality: their role on shared alternatives choices. J. behav. health soc. ISSUES [online]. 2014, vol.6, n.2, pp.71-86.  Epub 22-Ene-2021. ISSN 2007-0780.

This study evaluated the role of the exposure to different kinds of contingential arrays (non-shared individual, non-shared collective and shared) within the establishment and quality (in terms of its particular, general or strategic character) of the verbal exchanges that the experimental participants established, as well as its effect on the election of shared alternatives of partial altruism.

A virtual puzzle solving task was used, puzzles were displayed in two computers that could be or not connected on a network, depending on the experimental condition in turn. The experimental sequences were planned on a way where their fundamental difference resided on the exposure time to non-shared contingencies before the choice conditions between shared or non-shared contingencies of partial altruism, based on Ribes (2001) theorical-methodological framework for social behavior study from a psychological perspective. Participants were placed in the same or in different experimental rooms in order to achieve maximum control over their possibility or not to establish verbal exchanges of any kind and to be able to assess its effect on the choice of shared alternatives of partial altruism.

In general, it was found that the kind of contingency to which participants were exposed was directly related to the quality of the verbal exchanges that they established between them, and that the choice of shared alternatives of partial altruism was favored by the presence of verbal exchanges of strategic quality.
