Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Using large-scale data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), this paper finds that financial professionals have a lower prosociality and riskier behavior than a control group. I interpret these findings using the person-organization fit theory, and thus, the compatibility between the employee's personality and the prevailing culture in their organization. ...

Time: 12:30 - 13:30

This paper studies self-control in a nationally representative sample.
