Your score puts you in the highest category of social reasoning. You will see ethical and moral
values as important to the needs of society and will appeal to basic rights or values. You might

Scores on the questionnaire form a scale that tracks the development of reasoning from
childhood through to adulthood about social, ethical and moral issues. The original research
using this questionnaire was conducted in the United States by Kohlberg and was followed up
by John Gibbs, Karen Basinger and Dick Fuller.
Most children make decisions based on the influence of power and authority figures,
progressing through an emphasis upon exchange relationships with others, then on to mutual
and social expectations.

Some people progress to a level where they base their moral reasoning on universal values.
Others become fixed at earlier stages depending upon circumstances. But recent research has
suggested that it is possible to change the way you reason about your social responsibilities.
