The bargaining game involves two players negotiating for a fair share of the sugar-pie. The first player, not very keen on sweets, emphasizes quality over quantity, indicating a non-conforming expectation compared to the typical desire for more sweets. On the other hand, the second player has an open attitude towards all sweet options, regardless of their specific preferences, which also contrasts with conventional expectations. Despite their differing expectations, both players aim for an equal division of the pie, each wanting to receive half of the available sweets. The paper seeks to analyze the negotiating power of the first player in achieving this equal division, considering their emphasis on quality and the shared goal of equal distribution. In this context, "nonconforming expectations" refer to the players' divergent views or attitudes regarding the sugar-pie and their preferences for sweets.
