Abstract

We study fairness and reciprocity in a Hawk-Dove Game. A variety of recent models gives the same predictions for this game. This allows us to provide a general classification of individuals' types. Contrary to a large number of studies of different games over the last decade, we observe a large group of subjects behaving in a self-interested way and observe only little reciprocity.
