Abstract When addressing conditional inducements,using a multi- level approach, several cognitive components appear to be of basic character: linguistic preferences for either a promise,or threat are connected,to the motivational background; the concepts themselves,are unilateral and complementary;,and emotional responses in subsequent interactions,follow,appraisal-theoretic,predictions. Whether these apparently essential components,really are basic was,examined,in a cross-cultural experiment conducted,in Tonga. The results support the conceptual universality; however, in practice, the Tongan participants tended to avoid threats in favor of promises and indicated less anger following broken promises.
