Individuals tend to conform to the group’s moral judgments even without the presence of the group’s members.
Individual’s moral inclination affects their conformity tendency.
…people with utilitarian inclinations conform to a greater extent and more frequently than people with deontological inclinations.
That is from a new paper by I.Z. Marton-Alper, A. Sobeh, and G. Shamay-Tsoory. Do they conform because they are more conformist, or because utilitarianism (arguably) provides a more specific path to a correct answer, at least correct within a utilitarian framework? Just as people who all use arithmetic, rather than guessing, might be more likely to converge upon the same answer.
