    Your average morality judgment was 4 out of 7. The red line represents your score! Scores closer to zero tend to indicate more emotional, 'deontological' decision making, whereas scores near 7 are related with rational utilitarianism.

    Your average empathy judgment was 3 out of 5. The red line represents your score!

    I started taking the tests and may go back to finish. On the morality test, I tend to find those scenarios as presenting two wrong choices, and do not feel there is a morally "right" thing to do. I think it is possible in reality to be confronted with only wrong choices and then having to deal with the guilt and confusion of being forced to make one. You can take the utilitarian approach and just always choose the fewest numbers of people killed, but I think an actual scenario like the ones described are more complex, and so a person may only know what decision they would actually make if they experienced it. Sometimes a person could try a third option and sometime a person could make one of the forced choices based on an instinctual response of what seemed best at the time. While I haven't had to choose which people die in my life experience, I have had scenarios with two wrong choices and so I tend to insist they are both wrong, but that sometimes we have to choose what is wrong and live with it. I may come back with some scores if I have time to go back and take the test.

    Your average disgust judgment was 3 out of 5
    Disgust is a visceral response to interacting with things, people or actions that we find to be wrong or bad. It makes intuitive sense that feelings of disgust factor in to moral decision making. The more disgusted we are by an unethical action, the more likely we are to judge the action (and its perpetrator) harshly. Conversely, people who score low on disgust scales might be more willing to endorse utilitarian actions that require doing some harm to bring about a greater good. Some esearchers have theorized that disgust is the embodiment of the emotional, deontological response we have to moral dilemmas.

    Your average empathy judgment was 3 out of 5.
    Emotions play an important role in dictating moral judgment. In our research, compassion is a particularly relevant personality trait. Having empathy for others means that we (usually) don't want to see other people getting hurt. We're able to put ourselves in someone elses shoes and reason about how bad it must feel. The extent to which you feel empathy partially determines how you react in tricky ethical situations. For example, a person who is less sensitive to the pain of others is more likely to endorse sacrificing one person for the good of the many. On the other hand, those who score high on our empathy scale tend to be more generous and less selfish in dilemmas involving their own personal gain.

    Why do none of these have self-sacrifice as an option? Let me escape the dilemma, pleeeaaaassssseeeee!!!!!

    Also, I think my answers were influenced by the fact that both potential outcomes were given to me point blank whereas in real life, there would be a chance that I could take the means-to-the-ends approach and still have everything turn out good. This told me what would happen either way so it was just a matter of picking the less of two evils.

    The issue with the questions is that the outcome is known. In real-life, you would be faced with not knowing. Thus, the moral dilemmas measure little.
