Title

Don’t Cough on Me: Patriotism and Empathy Impact COVID-19 Behaviors

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

College students completed an author generated questionnaire on COVID-19 behaviors, as well as personality measures. Blind patriotism, but not empathy, significantly predicts prosocial COVID-19 behaviors. Additionally, perspective-taking may impact these behaviors more than others. These data suggest that mindset, rather than more scientific evidence, could increase prosocial behaviors.
