Tuncel Paper Selected by Academy of Management

Ece Tuncel, Management in St. Louis

Ece Tuncel, associate professor in the Management Department of the Walker School, has a paper selected to appear in the Best Paper Proceedings at the 2019 Academy of Management Meeting that will be held in Boston.

"The retrospective imputation of nefarious intent" examines how the perceived implications of people’s ethical and unethical acts for moral character might change as new events unfold and whether this might differ for evaluations of the self vs. others.

The results reveal that awareness of a subsequent bad deed led observers to engage in greater retrospective imputation of nefarious intent for the prior good deed, which in turn led them to discount the diagnosticity of the prior good deed to a greater degree, consider the target less moral, and exhibit less trust in that party.
