Summary

This project builds on prior work showing that implicit (neuro-cognitive and psycho-physiological) measures reveal how much people care about being moral, even if they do not acknowledge this on more explicit indicators. The project will examine the effectiveness of three types of strategies that can be used to enhance the impact of outgroup norms on an ingroup’s behavior, as imposed for instance by professional oaths or integrity tests. Different neuro-cognitive and physiological measures will be used to monitor whether people only say they acknowledge and adopt moral norms imposed by the outgroup, or whether they actually internalize these norms as self-relevant.
