Participation in the MST
Participating in the Moral Sense Test is quick and easy, and puts you at the center of an exciting research project. Before you begin, it is important that you read the information on this page. It describes the test, the conditions under which you should take it, and how to make sure it will load properly on your computer.
In this version of the test you will be asked to make judgments about a series of hypothetical situations. We will also ask some other questions about your thoughts, feelings and approach to makign decisions. Most subjects finish in about 15 minutes. Please do not discuss the questions with anybody else, or consult any texts or outside material, while you are taking the test. This version of the test is for fluent English speakers only.
The Moral Sense Test requires a web browser equipped with the latest version of Macromedia Flash. Most web users have Flash installed automatically, but if you experience difficulty loading the test, or if you know that you do not have Flash, you can download it.
In addition, if you experience difficulties, please first read the FAQ and then, if your problem is still not resolved, report it.
Finally, we ask that you only take the MST once. If you wish to participate in future versions of the MST, you will be provided the opportunity to register at the end of the test.
I am aware of the possibility of encountering personal challenges with my answers to the MST, as well as possible disagreements with the interpretations of my MST by the researchers responsible for this web site. Knowing this, I wish to proceed.
