Abstract

This paper analyzes if men and women are expected to behave differently regarding altruism. Since the dictator game provides the most suitable design for studying altruism and generosity in the lab setting, we use a modi�ed version to study the beliefs involved in the game. Our results are substantial: men and women are expected to behave di¤er-
ently. Moreover, while women believe that women are more generous, men consider women as generous as men
