Neue Studie: Mehr Männer als Frauen würden in die Zeit zurückreisen, um Hitler zu töten

Es gibt eine neue Untersuchung, deren Ergebnisse von den Forschern so interpretiert werden, dass zum Schluss Frauen die besseren Menschen sind:

Have you ever actually considered, in the sober light of day, whether you would kill Adolf Hitler if you could travel back in time?

A new academic paper has collected the responses of over 6,100 people to exactly that question, and concluded that men are much more likely than women to say 'yes' to the opportunity of assassinating the Nazi dictator.

Researchers from the United States, Canada and Germany conducted a meta-analysis of 40 studies that saw subjects asked a series of moral questions. Topics ranged from murder and torture to lying and animal testing.

In the instance of the question about Hitler, the academics noted that while men and women both recognised the consequences of their decision would have far-reaching complications, women felt "a stronger emotional aversion" to the idea of causing physical harm to someone.

"Women seem to be more likely to have this negative, emotional, gut-level reaction to causing harm to people in the dilemmas, to the one person, whereas men were less likely to express this strong emotional reaction to harm," Rebecca Friesdorf, the lead author of the study, told NPR.
