The scale you completed was a measure of what types of stories you enjoy
that is currently under development by Ravi Iyer
of the University of Southern California.
The idea behind the scale is that stories are a fundamental and basic way
that moral messages are transferred between people and reinforced. For example,
this study found that people who were told a story by another person had synchronous
brain activation patterns, suggesting that stories allow the transmission of ideas, thoughts,
and emotions. Stories often have clear
moral messages and the emotional impact that a just or happy ending can possibly reinforce
pre-existing values. We are interested in examining whether people who have particular value
orientations also enjoy particular kinds of stories. For example, people who enjoy
stories where good triumphs over evil may also endorse ideas of moral relativism less
