How moral am I?

Taboo?

Your Moralising Quotient is: 0.30.

Your Interference Factor is: 0.00.

Your Universalising Factor is: 0.40.

What do these results mean?

Your Moralising Quotient is an aggregate measure of your tendency to condemn the actions described in these scenarios as morally wrong. A score of 1.00 indicates a fully moralising position. A score of 0.00 is a fully permissive response. (See below for more on these.)

Your Interference Factor is an aggregate measure of your tendency to judge the actions described here as being the legitimate target of societal interference in the form of prevention or punishment. A score of 1.00 indicates that you think that every act described in these scenarios is subject to societal interference. A score of 0.00 indicates that you think that these acts are essentially a private matter, and that societal interference is inappropriate.

Your Universalising Factor is an aggregate measure of your tendency to judge moral wrongdoing in universal terms. A score of 1.00 means that every time you have determined one of the acts depicted in these scenarios to be morally wrong, you have universalised the judgement of moral wrongoing; that is, you have indicated that the act is wrong regardless of prevailing cultural norms and social conventions. A score of 0.00, on the other hand, means that where you see moral wrong in the acts depicted in these scenarios, you have not once universalised the judgement of moral wrongdoing; that is, you have indicated that whether an act is to be thought of as wrong is largely a matter of social norms, and that it is quite possible that what is wrong in one culture may not be wrong in another. A score of -1 means that you saw no moral wrong in any of the activities depicted in these scenarios, and so it is not possible for this activity to determine the extent to which you see moral wrongdoing in universal terms.

Interesting results. I hope it was the chicken scenario that you baulked at....

I balked at the chicken and the incest scenarios

There was something wrong with the chicken scenario? You must be a townie...

Funny, I heard once of an Army cook being court martialled, and found guilty, for doing just that. Admittedly he did cook it and serve it to the troops (allegedly)...
More apocryphal tales from the "green" world as and when the opportunity arises.

I never ate Chicken Kiev in the mess on the precautionary principle.....
