When do people cheat?

Dan Arieli at TEDTED just released an talk with Dan Arieli where he discusses “when do people cheat?”.  The gist: 1) people cheat in small increments (rather than in big quantities), 2) they are less likely to cheat when reminded of morals and ethics and 3) they are more likely to cheat when someone else in their peer group cheats but less likely to cheat when it’s someone from a ‘rival’ group. 

Even if it sounds common-sense you would better watch the entire talk to get the full story behind the research.
