Induction sémantique de l'amour et comportement d'aide envers des réfugiés : amour + réfugiés = amour des réfugiés ?

Abstract : In an experiment conducted in a natural setting, bystanders (n=180) were solicited for their opinions about illegal refugees, before being asked to actively help refugees. The investigator’s T-shirt featured (or not) the word LOVE. The results showed that the sum of money that the participants agreed to give for the refugee cause was significantly greater after a semantic induction of love occurred, compared to the control group. However, concerning compliance to other requests for help and participants’ opinions about refugees, the effect of semantic induction was not significant. These results are analysed with reference to social norms at work in prosocial behavior. They also highlight the opposition that exists between the motivational component of the concept of love (to draw near) and that which is attached to the idea of illegal refugees (to move away from).
