Please note: To accommodate reviewer and recommender holiday schedules, we will be closed to submissions from 1st July — 1st September. During this time, reviewers will be able to submit reviews and recommenders will issue decisions, but no new or revised submissions can be made by authors. The one exception to this rule is that authors using the scheduled track who submit their initial Stage 1 snapshot prior to 1st July can choose a date within the shutdown period to submit their full Stage 1 manuscript.

We are recruiting recommenders (editors) from all research fields!

<p>Inferring the character of individuals is an adaptive need for partner and mating decisions as well as to avoid harm. The effort moralization effect is the finding that people who exert more effort in a task are seen as more moral, even if higher effort does not enhance the outcome (e.g., higher performance or better quality). We aim to replicate this effect, based on Celniker et al. (2023, Study 6), in countries not yet included in this research (Germany and Mexico). Furthermore, drawing on discussions around workforce participation (see ‘great resignation’, or ‘quiet quitting’) that criticize the supposedly lower work ethic of younger individuals (e.g., the so-called Gen Z), we will examine whether lower effort moralization is observed as a function of age (including non-linear terms). This will allow us to examine whether younger generations do indeed moralize ineffective effort less than older generations.<br>[remainder will be completed in Stage 2]</p>
