Selection

  • Selection: some people are more likely to be drawn into voluntary action.
  • These are the more happy, trusting, healthy, people with larger networks.
  • They are more likely to start volunteering, and they are less likely to quit volunteering.

  • ‘Interactionism’ in personality and social psychology
  • Individual differences in prosocial values shape the attractiveness of situations that involve contributions to the well being of others
  • Individuals with larger networks are more likely to be asked to start and continue volunteering
  • Individuals in better health are more able to continue volunteering
