The usage of the “like attract like” theory can be applied to moral decision making. Preferences in moral theory (utilitarian or deontological) were examined with the use of the trolley problem (Greene, 2008) between college individuals of varying age, major, and gender. When asked the trolley problem, both males and females answered similarly. In contrast, older individuals preferred utilitarianism when compared to their youngercounterparts. Individuals in the science and business majors also favored utilitarianism more when compared to individuals in the liberal arts.
