Influence of Age Group and Honesty Perception on Decision to Cheat

This research explored the relationship between age group and honesty perception when confronting the hypothetical scenario involving the level of risk and amount of gain. The notion of risk is low when the respondent can destroy their answer sheet and high when submission is required. The idea of reward is low when the respondent gets 1 Baht per one correct answer, compared to a high reward of 100 Baht per one. Interaction of risk and gain includes low-high risk and low-high gain. Among the three age groups under study, Gen Z increased their report of correct answers when the risk was low and the gain was high. Moderate self-view of honesty reported more correct answers, yet again, when the risk and gain are high.The Chi-square test confirmed these occurrences are statistically significant at a p-value less than 0.05. Regarding the comparative view of honesty to others, the superior self-view to other groups reported more correct answers than the similar-to-others view but not in a statistically significant way. The study serves as another empirical data on whether generation groups and honesty self-perception play a role in determining who we can trust.
