Extraneous Intrusions in Moral Temptation Can Switch Decisions.
Black, Percy
Journal of Moral Education, v22 n2 p139-56 1993
Reports on a 3-year study of 855 adults who quantified reasons for choosing 1 conflicting behavior with another. Finds that, when the reasons to do something are roughly equal to the reasons against doing it, extraneous effects from the participants "life-world" often interfere as moral temptations. (CFR)
