Abstract

Abstract.

In two replication attempts, procedural priming of a high construal mindset (“why” condition) unexpectedly led to less harsh judgment of moral transgressions compared to priming of a low construal mindset (“how” condition). Eyal, Liberman, and Trope (Eyal, Liberman and Trope, 2014) proposed the mechanism that explained these findings, and obtained some supporting data. We expand on it by testing the mechanism on virtuous acts instead of on moral transgressions. We conclude by discussing the need to re-evaluate the procedures in the context of specific studies.
