dc.description.abstractThe current research explores the relationship between feeling socially connected and decision-making in high- conflict moral dilemmas. High-conflict moral dilemmas pit utilitarian outcomes, where one person is directly harmed to save five others, against people's social intuitions and values, e.g. “Do not harm others.” Drawing on sociality motivation research, we predict that feeling socially connected increases utilitarian choices in high- conflict moral dilemmas. We support this prediction in three studies. Our studies manipulated social connection, independent of the dilemma context, using live social interactions (Studies 1–2) and a recall task (Study 3). Across studies, those induced to feel social connection made more utilitarian choices in a high-conflict moral dilemma.en_US
