- ["Five studies demonstrate that people who punish are more likely to indicate that they will behave in a deviant manner, relative to non-punishers. Study 1 showed that being the agent of norm enforcement in an economic game resulted in increased deviance intentions. Study 2 provided evidence that the effects on deviant behavior are unique to punishing by ruling out possibilities that merely condemning the transgression, or witnessing another person punish, would lead to deviance. Additionally, an increased sense of power did not mediate the relationship between punishment and deviance. Studies 3 and 4 showed that punishers reported increased moral self-regard, relative to non-punishers and those who condemned. In Study 5, participants who were randomly assigned to sanction a thief by assigning a fair amount of punishment reported increased deviance relative to participants who over-punished or did not punish."]
