Description: In this paper, recently accepted for publication at PLoS ONE, we consolidate key findings from 11 online and 4 field studies investigating the role of elevation as an emotion for adaptive prosocial contagion. Replicating previous work, we find that elevation mediates prosocial contagion. Building on this, we present evidence in support of the novel hypothesis that expectations about the prosociality of others explain individual differences in the experience of elevation. We interpret results through the lens of a novel adaptationist model of elevation.
