Details

Dataset from a study where participants completed identical moral dilemmas in two different sessions held on separate days: in one session, they read text description of the scenario, while in another session they completed the same scenarios in Virtual Reality (videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebdU3HhhYs8). The study investigated if there was a discrepancy between how people judged the same scenarios while reading them in text versus experiencing them in virtual reality.
