    BAD BEHAVIUOR COMES NATURALLY

    We cheat, because it’s the easiest thing to do.


    Toronto: Ever wondered why do people behave immorally? May be it's just too easy, say scientists.

    Many people say they wouldn't cheat in a test, lie on a job application or refuse to help a person in need. But if situations are 'favourable', they don't take much time to change their minds, found researchers at the University of Toronto.

    The researchers, who carried out two experiments to test participants' willingness to behave immorally,foundthat peoplewould like to behave badly, if it doesn't involve too much work on their part.

    “People are more likely to cheat and make immoral decisions when their transgressions don't involve an explicit action,” said Rimma Teper, lead author of the study, published online now in Social Psychological and Personality Science.

    “If they can lie by omission, cheat withoutdoing muchlegwork,or bypass a person's request for help without expressly denying them, they are much more likely to do so.”

    “When people are confronted with actively doing the right thing or the wrong thing, there are a lot of emotions involved — such as guilt and shame — that guide them to make the moral choice.

    When the transgression is more passive, however, we saw more people doing the wrong thing, and webelieve this is because the moral emotions in such situations are probably less intense,” Teper added.

    lying can only negatively affect people (lying to protect somebody is, morally, also negative)

    cheating on a test: you got a better grade than you deserved = other people who stayed legal suffer from your altered test result, since their position in the average is worse.

    cheating in real-life without affecting other would be: read book --> read ending before you got there.

    you see where I am going here?

    Mind, I dont care if people lie/cheat without noticeable affecting MYSELF negatively. (grammar? )
    Just making my point clear
    And I do cheat in games ];->

    Lying can also affect people positive and not only negative like if he/she asks if he/she looks good and you say yes but you really think no because you diden´t want to lie. Then he/she really thinks that he/she looks good as you said.

    But I see what your point is.
