Morality and Decision Making
Have you ever asked yourself why you make certain decisions in some situations? How are you able to differentiate between something ‘good’ or ‘bad’? It is because of your moral principles and values. Morality is basically a set of rules or a code of conduct which guides our behavior and helps us in distinguishing between action or a consequence being good or bad. In our daily life, we directly or indirectly use our morality to judge and decide what to do and what not to do in a particular situation. Whenever an individual does something which is against his moral values, he develops a feeling of guilt. This study attempts to study how our decisions are influenced by our morality and how morality is itself influenced by different factors like the principle of utility or altruism. Thought Experiment was employed to study the morality and decision making among the participants on three different moral dilemma scenarios. Total 300 responses were recorded with the help of an online questionnaire, out of which 192 were female participants and 108 were male participants.
