dc.description.abstract 187 Ss simulated distributing $100,000 in a will to their three children, one of whom was described as High Equity/Low Need, one described s Low Equity/High Need, and one described as Low Equity/Low Need. The majority of Ss allocated equal amounts of money to all their children, although a substantial minority chose to give more to the needy child. Few chose to assign more to the High Equity/Low Need child. Both respondents' gender and age influenced the pattern of distribution but not the targets' gender. The implications of the results for Equity Theory are discussed. en_US
