Title: The Effect of Epistemic,Social and Identity Motivation on Preference Impartation: A Case Study in Behavioral OR
During the negotiation preparation phase, the system provided information in verbal and graph formats about the principal’s preferences. The verbal and graph formats unambiguously depicted the principals’ preferences, yet the agents made errors while converting them to numbers. This led us to design experiments to assess the agents’ motivation and its impact on the errors. The analysis of data obtained from the experiments shows that the majority of the agents make both ordinal and cardinal errors in the reconstruction of the principal’s preferences. It shows that the agents’ intrinsic motivation contributes to the errors and has a negative effect on their preparation. To determine how different types of motivation contribute to the agents’ inaccuracy, a hierarchical framework of the epistemic, social and identity motivation is proposed. The results indicate that the rational motivation system has significant direct effect on social motivation and identity motivation. Experiential motivational system has no significant effect on social motivation but it affects two goals of identity motivation. The model also shows that only identity motivation has direct effect on the accuracy of the preferences formulated by the agents as compared with the principals' preferences.
