11-N: the Impact of Vice Magnitude on Evaluations of Vice-Virtue Bundles

We show that low (vs. high) comparability of payoffs of vice and virtue components leads to a more abstract (vs. concrete) processing, and a credentials-based (vs. credentials-based) justification process. Subsequently, increasing the vice component of the vice-virtue bundle increases (vs. decreases) bundle attractiveness under low (vs. high) payoff comparability.
