English Abstract

This research is conceptually based on Ethnocentrism Model of Hammond & Axelrod (2006a) and Seven-stages Altruistic Behavior Model of Ma (1992) to form five distinctive agents: 1.selfish agent; 2. ethnocentric passive agent which perform in-groups cooperation but repel out-groups; 3. ethnocentric active agent; 4. pure altruistic passive agent which perform ingroups and out-groups cooperation; 5. pure altruistic (active) agent. In possession of agent-based evolutionary model, the result indicates the passive ethnocentric agents become dominant in the whole population, provided that the pure altruistic agents are supportive. The concluding result of this argument reflects the fact that the passive ethnocentric agents are initially unenergetic, thus the trigger of their altruistic behavior is relied on the benevolent explanation and persuasion of the pure altruistic agents. After all, the consecutive passive ethnocentric agents will follow up to benefit others as in adapting Tit-for-Tat strategy. This result might provide some additional remarks to the model of Hammond & Axelrod (2006a) on explaining why the population is dominant by the ethnocentric agents.
