The idea of this study emerged after long observation of how people behave in very funny ways. Then it led to the rise of the most commonly asked question “Do people think before they act?” The question led to need asses and harmonized the society for the well-being of everybody without infringing the rights of others.
The research targets college students because they were considered to be the most affected lot. They also live together despite the fact that they come from different backgrounds. The varying background helps to cut across the entire general society in the country. Fourteen respondents will be picked randomly from five national colleges. The sample must have equal number of male and female students.
Which of these ethical behavior correlates? Does a person think before acting where an immediate response is necessary? After the act, does a person sit back and reflect what just happened? If people reflect their acts, how long do they take before they do this?
