The Impact of the Nature and the Subject Characteristics of the Incident on Individual Moral Judgment
Rooted in Chinese local and social culture, scholars like Fei Xiaotong have found that people hold different standards in moral judgment for different relationships with their closeness. But is it the real case? We randomly select 60 college students to conduct our behavior experiments, and discuss from the point of view of the closeness relationships which impact on the individual moral judgment. When the psychological distance is the same, we will explore whether the age and gender will have impact on the whole process of moral judgment. The past studies mainly focused on immoral deeds, however, this essay sets both moral and immoral situation, and also it tests whether different situation will affect the individual’s moral judgment. The conclusion of the study is as follows: 1) Gender and professional do not have impacts on moral judgment. 2) People do not have the apparent differences when it concerned with varied situations, however, relative to moral event, individual’s reaction to the immoral situation is obvious slower, the reason may be the impact of the characteristics of the subject. 3) The individual’s moral judgment will change with the different factors, such as gender, professional, the nature of the incident, and the charac- teristics of the subject. 4) The individual’s moral judgment will change with changes of the age of the incident subject, but this difference has a less effect of the gender of the incident subject.
