This dissertation involves three projects investigating moral decision making. Project one investigates across two experiments how social recognition of moral and non-moral behavior influences subsequent moral striving. Project two investigates across two experiments how different perspectives people take on their past moral and non-moral behavior influence their subsequent moral striving. Project three investigates the influence of weight metaphors in moral judgments across three experiments. Furthermore, limitations and theoretical as well as applied implications of all three projects are discussed.
