MORALITY AND ALCOHOL
We conducted a series of studies. We found that alcohol did not change how people evaluated themselves (their personality, moral identity, aggressiveness, and intelligence). Moreover, it also did not change how people made moral decisions. On the other hand, we found that drunk respondents were more likely to have a higher intention to do the wrong thing.

How does alcohol change what we think about ourselves, what we think about moral issues, and does it make us want to do bad things?
