P-24 Prosocial Effects of Perspective-Taking through LEGO Play

Description

This study seeks to examine the claims in the LEGO Six Bricks Booklet regarding perspective-taking outcomes related to prosocial behaviors intended to benefit others (the LEGO Foundation, 2015; Dunfield, 2014). In helping situations, trait kindness predicts prosocial behaviors (Lefevor et al., 2017). One hundred twenty subjects will be randomly assigned to one of three conditions that involve LEGO Six Bricks task and a prosocial task. One-way ANOVA and a Bonferroni-Holm post-hoc will be conducted to compare performance on the prosocial measure in the three conditions. We posit that LEGO perspective-taking tasks increase prosocial behaviors beyond individual trait predispositions.
