Abstract：The dual-process model of moral decision-making posits that emotion processing and value judgments compete and cooperate with each other in moral decision-making. Previous studies have separately revealed the influences of emotional involvement and expected value (determined by magnitude and probability) on moral decision-making. However, there is no evidence to support their interaction. In this study, moral dilemma stories were used to investigate the interactive effects of magnitude and probability on moral decision-making under varying degrees of emotional involvement. The results showed that under the condition of low emotional involvement, the utilitarian tendency increased with increasing magnitude and decreasing probability. However, under the condition of high emotional involvement and high survival probability, the difference in utilitarian tendency was no longer significant between the higher two levels of magnitude (medium and large number of victims). This suggests that the influence of expected value was weakened under the condition of high emotional involvement where emotional processing is dominant. The results confirm the interaction of emotional involvement and expected value on moral decision-making, which is a valuable supplement to the dual-process model.
