Moral decisions are critically important to everyday life. Some decisions are as easy as whether or not to hit the snooze bar after the alarm rings. Other decisions could be as difficult as deciding to tell on a classmate whom you saw cheating on an exam. Not everyone will make the same choices in these situations. How does one decide? The central feature in this decision-making process is that one must differentiate between what is moral and what is not moral. A moral decision refers to individual choice; how one will act in any given situation (Nisan, 1990). In order to form a moral decision, one needs to please the innerself.
