Individual Cognitive Moral Development (Kohlberg)
Kohlberg suggests that we make ethical judgements and decisions differently based on the level of moral development we have achieved. Some people stop at level 1, Preconventional- focusing only on self interest and not getting caught; others move up to level 2, Conventional- doing what others expect of us; and still others progress to the highest level 3- Post Conventional-Doing the right thing based on ethical principles rather than based on what others expect.
