dc.description.abstract The present study investigated the effects of culture on learning about trustworthiness. Prior work has focused on how culture affects the perception of trustworthiness based on facial features. A broker investment task was used to measure learning of whether different faces, tested for ingroup and outgroup members, behaved in a trustworthy, untrustworthy, or neutral manner. We found individuals across cultural groups learned to differentiate the brokers and did so better for ingroup than outgroup members.
