Being honest was the most important trait identified, which just goes to show you how highly honesty is valued in our society, or sadly, how it has become a rarely possessed quality by people in positions of leadership. Yet, how honest are you, really?
Have you ever lied or cheated, even just a little? An intriguing new study by Dan Ariely revealed that virtually everyone has the capacity to lie sometimes, but surprising circumstances make it much more likely. If you’ve ever wondered how there can be so many “corrupt” people in government or in corporations like the drug companies, this research provides a clear explanation …
- Intriguing new research revealed that virtually everyone has the capacity to lie sometimes, but very few people cheat to the maximum degree
- Little incentives trigger more dishonesty than a sizeable cash reward, and people were more likely to cheat when they knew others were engaging in the same behavior
- While people want to maximize their own reward, they also want to feel like they are a good person, which may explain why people are more likely to lie and cheat “only a little”
- When it comes to making money, many industries throw ethics and integrity out the window; the more a company has to lose, the more they are going to lie
- A reminder of a sound moral code was the only factor that made people stop cheating, so there’s a good chance products that come from morally sound businesses will also be held up to a superior level of quality
Which sure explains why CPS is so utterly corrupt and CPS agents are such pathetic sociopathic lying freaks.
