DONG Rui;LU Ting;HU Qiaolong;College of Business Administration, Zhejiang University of Finance & Economics;  
In the current study, we explored the relationship between ethical predispositions and moral decision-making in daily moral conflicts, and its possible theoretical boundaries. We asked 443 undergraduate students to complete questionnaires. The results showed utilitarianism had a significant positive impact on unethical decision. Formalism had a significant negative impact on unethical decision. Reflectiveness moral attentiveness played a moderation effect on the relationship between formalism and unethical decision.Specifically, when reflective moral attention was low, there was no correlation between and unethical decision-making; when reflective moral attention was high, the higher the formalism, the more likely the individual was to make unethical decision. Therefore, the study implies that formalism can provide the right direction for individual, but it cannot guarantee individual to make ethical decision. Moral attentiveness and moral predispositions jointly shape individual moral behavior.
