I got this idea from an old tv show.
I find it an intriguing philosophical question and will be interested in the results.


There is $1 million.
There is one opponent.
You have 2 options with 4 outcomes.
You can either choose to 'share' the money 50/50 with your opponent or you can choose 'steal' and you get the enitire $1 million.


But there is a cath (there always is a catch).

If both of you choose to 'share' then the money will be split equally.
If you chose to 'steal' and they choose to 'share' then you will get the full money.
If they choose to 'steal' and you choose to 'share' then they get the full money.
If both of you choose to 'steal' then no-one gets any money at all.
So what do you pick?



(The above is only an example, you could have a scenario where instead of money, both your lives are at stake etc).

I will add a poll as well.

From a practical point of view would it not be better to steal it?

Because if they decide to share you get all the money. If they decide to steal they will be punished for being greedy and won't have the satisfaction of stealing your potential money. You will either be better off or equal to the opponent.

But if you share and they steal then they will get the money. Why give them that satisfaction?


I think that is what most contestants think when they do this. Only the really nice people choose to share.

it depends on the opponent. but leaning towards steal. but since it wasn't their money to begin with, i wouldn't consider it stealing.

i would rather not keep any expectations and get something rather than want it all and get nothing at the end. so, i would share for a very selfish reason....

I cannot pick one as I do both.

EDIT:

After reading what the thread is actually about, I choose "share".

Otherwise no one gets nothing.

After leaving, I can follow the other contestant and take the remaining money from him.
