Implicit Theories of Morality and Moral Licensing
We studied effect of implicit theories of morality on moral licensing. Entity theorists (believing morality is fixed) showed stable tendency to praise their future moral deeds after recall of moral or immoral behaviors. Incremental theorists (believing in malleable morality) perceived future moral deeds as less praise-worthy after immoral behavior recall.
