Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The purpose of this study was to investigate the decision-making tendency of Japanese people in everyday moral dilemmas using the Japanese-translated EMCS (Everyday Moral Conflict Situation). We also investigated how the degree of importance, the degree of indecision, and the degree of confidence were related to the decision-making tendency. In addition, we examined whether the gender and age of the survey participants were related to their decision-making tendencies. The results showed that the participants tended to make altruistic decisions when they were in possession of something that should have been returned to the other person. We also found a tendency that episodes with the higher degree of indecision had a lower decision bias, and episodes with the higher degree of confidence had a higher decision bias. On the other hand, we did not find any relationship between participants' gender or age and their decision-making tendencies.
