Both are equally terrifying.” But it’s not that easy to explain why. To get along in the society, one has to learn to handle criticism well.

For although there were ambiguities in Moore's presentation of his argument against naturalism, and although few people nowadays would accept an intuitionism of the type advocated by Prichard, yet the facts about the nature of moral discourse that led these writers to the views which I have described are indeed facts; and they do indeed render impossible of fulfilment the traditional programme of moral philosophers, that of using logical considerations, arising out of the meanings of the moral words, to get them from an 'is' to an 'ought'.

In fact, several researchers try to confirm the existence of moral identity using empirical methodologies and to identify common moral traits that can be applied to theories of virtue ethics (Aquino & Reed, 2002, 2003; Blasi, 1984; Weaver, 2006). It is worth while to examine these reasons; for moral philosophers have often found themselves subjected to criticism of this sort, especially in the present century.

Philosophers and social scientists have long sought to understand the decision-making process. The idealism scale, in contrast, measures one's perspective on positive and negative consequences with such items as "A person should make certain that their actions never intentionally harm another even to a small degree" and "If an action could harm an innocent other then it should not be done" (Forsyth, 1980).
