Stand up to Action: The Postural Effect of Moral Dilemma Decision-Making and the Moderating Role of Dual Processes

刘传军; 廖江群
Subjects: Psychology >> Social Psychology

Previous studies have demonstrated the possibility that when people are in standing than sitting postures, they have a stronger cognitive control propensity, making them inclined to agree more to sacrificing one innocent and saving more people. Furthermore, this postural effect can be moderated by dual processes. In three studies, participants read dilemma scenarios followed by a proposed behavior to sacrifice one innocent and save five or more people. The participants in sitting or standing postures were asked whether the described action was morally acceptable (moral judgment) and whether they would perform the described action (moral action). The results demonstrated that participants were more approving of the behavioral proposal in the moral action perspective than in the moral judgment perspective across the three studies. The hypothesized postural effect was found in a field study (Study 1) and replicated in a pre-registered replication study (Study 2) and further supported in an experimental study (Study 3). Compared with those in sitting postures, participants in standing postures expressed higher approval of the behavioral proposal compared to their sitting counterparts. Furthermore, the postural effect was dismissed when participants made moral decisions with a dual task to increase cognitive load, and it was reversed when they made moral decisions after deliberate consideration of the behavioral proposal (Study 3). The present research supports and extends the dual-process morality theory by demonstrating that body posture can affect moral decision-making; it also offers novel evidence revealing the moderating role of dual process on embodiment effects. It enriches our knowledge that morality is evolutionarily embodied in postures and that the dual process can moderate embodiment effects.

[目的]基于新冠疫情爆发后中国民众可以短时间内戴上口罩这一现象,本研究探讨了中国集体主义文化下一致性行动的达成机制。 [方法]通过逻辑整合前人研究及疫情期间民众戴口罩行为动机的全国性问卷调查结果,研究首先构建出集体主义文化下的责任意识理论模型,并提出了其随社会与组织情境变化而动态变化的可能性;而后研究采用问卷、访谈、主题统觉测验和实验的方法验证了集体主义文化下的责任意识模型及其动态变化的存在和原因,且推测该责任意识模型的不同形态会导致集体目标下不同水平的一致性行动,进而设计了情境启动的问卷实验。 [结果]1、集体主义文化下的责任意识微观模型可以分为个体责任和互依责任两个部分:当互依责任占主导时,个体与集体中的他人形成元责任互依,构成责任意识的中观模型;集体中所有个体的元责任互依相互连结形成类似于“中国结”的宏观模型;2、由于自我构念组成随情境的变化引发了责任意识模型中个体责任和互依责任的强弱变化,责任意识的“中国结”模型呈现出随情境变化而产生的动态变化;3、问卷实验的结果说明了在集体目标的驱使下,与集体责任互依的个体的一致性行动倾向会显著增强。 [局限]作为将中国本土心理学和西方文化心理学视角相结合进行理论建模和实证检验的初步探索,本研究离其最终目标“用世界通用的学术语言讲好中国故事”还有较长的路要走。 [结论]中国集体主义文化下民众的责任意识可以用“中国结”来形象表征,且其由自我构念随情境变化而产生的不同形态会导致集体目标驱使下不同水平的一致性行动。

疫苗安全恐慌是由疫苗负面报道或阴谋论引发的公众对疫苗接种安全性与有效性的普遍怀疑, 其后果是导致区域性甚至全球范围内的疫苗接种率或接种意愿的短期骤降。在个体对疫苗接种的负性先前信念以及经验加工和要义提取的影响下, 前述信息会在传播过程中形成风险的社会放大。应对疫苗安全恐慌的心理学策略主要包括信念接种、重建风险感知、回应公众信息需求和情绪诉求等, 但仍需进一步检验其生态效度。此外还需采取有效措施促进正面疫苗信息的社会分享以反制疫苗不实信息的影响。

Coping With Coronavirus Pandemic: Risk Perception Predicts Life Optimism

Kailin Cheng; Jiangqun Liao
Subjects: Psychology >> Social Psychology

Objective: Given that the coronavirus pandemic has become a severe concern around the world, how can optimism be maintained in an outbreak of a collective epidemic? We proposed that perceived control and negative affect could be potential explanatory factors for optimism in the face of pandemic. Methods & Results: In Study 1, a large-scale (N = 599) cross-sectional design (N = 599) showed the effect of risk perception on life optimism and the serial mediating effect of “perceived control–negative affect” through structural equation modeling. Then, Study 2 (N = 191) ascertained the causality between risk perception for epidemic and life optimism with experimental manipulations. Finally, Study 3 (N = 186) controlled for extrinsic variables and further revealed that the effect of risk perception on optimism could be extended to overall subjective well-being. Conclusions: Together, these findings indicated that under influenza epidemic, risk perception could make a difference in life optimism. Moreover, perceived control and negative affect were notable contributing factors in the link. Measures strengthening the publicity and transparency of recovery rates should be taken to reduce public risk perceptions and promote life optimism.

Haze Blocks the Windows to the Soul: The Role of Anonymity in the Unethical Effects of Air Pollution

Objective: Air pollution is a global concern with both health and psychological costs. Drawing upon the unethical impacts of air pollution, this paper proposes that haze could give rise to immoral tendencies through enhanced anonymity. Methods & Results: Big data analysis of daily web searches across a period of three years revealed that an increase in web searches for immoral words was associated with hazy days. Three subsequent experiments established the causal effects of psychologically experiencing haze or personally experiencing hazy days on immoral intentions and cheating behaviors. Moreover, these effects were mediated by perceived anonymity, intensified by the low visibility in haze. In support of deindividuation, masking, which could boost perceived anonymity, amplified the unethical effects of air pollution. Conclusions: Taken together, these findings suggest that perceived anonymity was a key psychological process underlying the unethical effects of haze. The findings of the study provide insights for researchers and policy makers to tackle the adverse effects of anonymity, especially on polluted days.

COVID-19 中稀缺对恐慌消费的影响:链式中介模型分析

Subjects: Psychology >> Social Psychology

[目的] 研究旨在考察突发公共危机中稀缺对恐慌消费的影响及其心理路径和边界条件。 [方法] 研究一借助大数据使用客观产品反映稀缺的影响。研究二在疫情爆发期进行了高生态效度的全国性线上问卷调查。研究三在不同的突发公共危机情境中启动稀缺验证因果。 [结果] 稀缺可以正向预测和加剧恐慌消费(研究1-3),控制感和恐慌情绪在其中起链式中介作用(研究2-3),但这一模式更适用于高风险的突发公共危机事件(研究3a\3b\3c)。 [局限]控制感与恐慌情绪的链式中介效应不能解释低风险感知的突发公共危机中稀缺引起恐慌消费的心理路径,未来研究需继续探究。更为客观的稀缺和恐慌消费指标值得进一步发掘和考察。 [结论] 高风险性的突发公共危机中,稀缺会降低控制感,增加恐慌情绪,最终引起恐慌消费。

Psychopathy and Moral Decision Making: A Data Reanalysis Exploration

Chuanjun Liu; Jiangqun Liao
Subjects: Psychology >> Social Psychology

Previous research found that people with higher level of psychopathy trait would endorse more to the harmful but beneficial action in traditional moral dilemmas. Three possibilities for this effect were confounded: People with higher psychopathy trait, 1) care more about the beneficial consequences; 2) care less about the “no harm” norms; 3) just prefer action irrespective of consequences and norms. A multinomial processing tree model named “CNI” was developed and claimed to dissociated these three possibilities. Four studies have applied CNI model to study the psychopathy-moral decision relationship. However, the CNI model presupposes the agent sequentially processes consequences-norms-generalized inaction/action preferences, which makes the estimated parameters biased and untenable. More recently, an alternative algorithm named “CAN” was developed based on the same data structure to overcome the limitations of CNI model. We applied CAN algorithm and reanalyzed the raw data of the four studies on psychopathy-moral decision relationship. The results demonstrated that people with higher psychopathy trait have weaker consequences and norms sensitivities, stronger overall action preferences, stronger inaction/action preferences irrespective of norms and consequences, and weaker moral principles obedience. Furthermore, the mediation and moderation reanalysis explorations demonstrated that instrumental harm and moral identity partly mediate the psychopathy-moral decision relationship and that perceived societal standards rather than personal standards when making moral decisions can alleviate the positive effects of psychopathy on overall action preference and action preference irrespective of norms and consequences. Present reanalysis exploration study clarified and deepened our insights on the relationship between psychopathy and moral decisions. Theoretical and methodological implications were also discussed.
