Social identity theory and ethical predisposition

By Larry Neale and Sam Fullerton

Abstract

While previous ethics students have produced consistent results in concluding that females are generally more critical of questionable business practices than are males, no such consensus exists for the results comparing academic majors. This student uses Social Theory to explain these mixed results, and a two-part questionaire to test the relationship. Results reveal that business students at university form a psychological group and identify as businesspeople, while non-business students self-categorized and identify as consumers
