Substantial prior research has investigated various aspects of interpersonal perceptions, such as the dimensions of warmth and competence. Researchers have suggested that morality as a human trait is a salient basis for forming perceptions of people, including how warm and competent they are perceived. The present study was designed to examine how people’s moral decisions affect warmth, competence, and morality perceptions in the workplace, how attractive these decisions make an individual for prospective project cooperation, as well as the perceived tendencies of individuals’ workplace decisions. The present study confirmed previous findings in the moral psychology literature, and also begins to examine the potential implications of moral decisions and perceptions in the workplace. Study limitations, implications, and suggestions for future research are discussed.
