Abstract

Gomes and McCullough (2015) are to be commended on their high-powered attempt to replicate our earlier research (Shariff & Norenzayan, 2007). We suggest that notable differences between the two studies indicate that Gomes and McCullough were testing a different question. Here we place Gomes and McCullough’s results in context with other studies and discuss how their findings may point to an interesting boundary condition of the original effect.
