MANHATTAN (PIX11) — Generally we’re all taught to believe that cheating is bad, and when you do it you should feel bad about it.
However a new study — from the University of Washington, the London Business School, Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania — says people are doing it and feeling great afterwards.
The reason — the apparent thrill they get from “beating the system.”
Whether it’s burning a CD rather than buying your own copy or playing around with the numbers on an expensive report, when people coast by after cheating they tend to feel pride instead of guilt.
PIX11’s resident morality monitor Andrew Ramos hit the streets and went on the prowl for cheaters and their thrill for cheating.
