Abstract

Experimental participants are more likely to follow an arbitrary rule the more others in their
reference group do so as well. The effect is most pronounced for individuals who follow few rules
when not knowing others’ behavior. Unlike what is observed for conditional cooperation,
learning that only few others follow a rule does not reduce rule following.
