Abstract:

To what extent our unethical behavior a product of dispositional, or situational forces? We argue that unethical behavior should be understood in terms of the dynamic interplay between dispositional factors – such as one’s ability and willpower, personality traits, and motivations and identity, and trait-relevant situational factors.
