Instructional Level: Intermediate

Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
1. Describe research results that supports the concept that humans tolerate limited amounts of dishonesty in their own behavior while still viewing themselves as being honest persons
2. List factors that promote honesty and dishonesty
3. Recognize facets of marketing campaigns that create and exploit conflict of interest situations and rely upon the norm of reciprocity
There is seldom a bright line between honesty and dishonesty. The honest truth is we are all dishonest, e.g.,the average person will inflate performance by 15 percent. Dishonesty varies across situations and is influenced by our ethical decision-making processes, what we witness in our peer group, how we rationalize our behavior, and the nature of the temptations. Marketing promotes conflict of interest situations and the norm of reciprocity because they are effective in influencing behavior. This eAudiology Web seminar covers social science information on honesty/dishonesty and conflict of interest.
