The Effect of Self-Target Comparison in Perspective Taking on Judgment of Dishonesty

Four studies demonstrate convergent evidence that self-target contrast (vs. assimilation) in perspective taking elicits more negative judgments toward a target seller when the seller’s act of dishonesty is ambiguous. The contrast effect is in part driven by perspective-takers’ self-anchoring of acting honestly (vs. not) in the seller’s situation.
