Previous studies have demonstrated that many college students, specifically those high on extraversion are prone to risky and sometimes unethical decision-making. The present study examined the impact of a decision-making "tool" that incorporated the use of standard ethical perspectives on students' attitudes and intentions. This "fill in the node" spatial display guides extraverts through a systematic decision process. Results revealed that extraverts reported positive outcomes with regard to the decision tool. The results also suggest that extraverts prefer the virtue and justice/fairness ethical perspectives more than introverts. Introverts, on the other hand, seemed to reduce their reliance on the utilitarian perspective when utilizing a decision guide map. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
