Can I Get Away with This?

Can I Get Away with This?

There are two tests I find especially powerful if you’re honest.

  1. The Wall Street Journal “stink test.” What if what you’re now doing or considering doing was in the Wall Street Journal tomorrow? How would people react?
  2. Kant’s Categorical Imperative: What if everyone did that? What would be the result?

The next time you’re tempted to cut in line, or cheat on a test, ask yourself those questions. Unless you’re a sociopath, they might just change your mind.
