<h2>Abstract</h2> <p>Information about other’s moral character is important for the success of individual’s social life. Such information helps people to avoid ‘bad guys’ and find potential cooperators. Given the importance of moral character information, it is possible that people tend to process this information deeper than other information. Test this hypothesis, the current study explored the impact of positive and negative moral information from harm and purity moral domains on the memory of faces. 32 participants first learned 24 neutral male faces that were associated with different moral behaviors, these behaviors included both positive and negative behavioral concerning the harm/care domain and sacred/pure domain. After a short arithmetic filler task, participants were tested for the old/new recognition and the source memory (e.g., if one face is recognitive as old, participants were further asked with which moral domain was this face associated). The results showed that participant performed better on source memory for the faces paired with behaviors from pure moral domain than the faces paired with behaviors from harm moral domain, regardless of the valence. These preliminary results may suggest that different moral behaviors may have different effects on face memory. However, these preliminary results need to be confirmed by further experiment with more powerful design.</p>
