Women have a higher moral level than men, but after 30 years all begin to shape the value system that we develop strong degree of morality, a new study suggests.
The study, which monitored the responses to questions about the honesty and competence, has shown that women tend to make decisions based on how they affect others. Also, research suggests that moral sense, both women and men, grow with age.
Several years ago, Professor Roger Stear has developed a test that measures the level of morality of a person and changes occur in the system of values, when individuals go to work. Since then, 60,000 volunteers in over 200 countries have completed such a questionnaire. The study assumed that participants answer questions about their personal and professional life, and the results suggested that, largely, morality is influenced by sex and age.
“If we look at policy makers at work, note that differences between men and women are important. Women prefer to make decisions based on how they affect others, which leads them to make decisions in May better than men, who are more individualistic, self-centered, “Stear said.
In other words, men, even in family life demonstrate compassion at work to avoid such values tend to climb the corporate ladder. However, as we age, we tend to have a level of morality ever higher.
“All of the study revealed the fact that as we age and accumulate experience, are less likely to listen to advice others. In these circumstances, people tend to act as a result of reason”, concluded Stear.
