Stupid People Deserve What They Get: The Effects of Personality Assessment on Judgments of Intentional Action

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (4):332-334 (2010)
Abstract
Knobe argues that people’s judgments of the moral status of a side-effect of action influence their assessment of whether the side-effect is intentional. We tested this hypothesis using vignettes akin to Knobe’s but involving economically or eudaimonistically (wellness-related) negative side-effects. Our results show that it is people’s sense of what agents deserve and not the moral status of side-effects that drives intuition.
