comment What is the term for judging based on a simulation of the same parameters on oneself
@Jake -> See above for egocentrism. I wouldn't say it is focussed on moral judgements albeit they are included. The important difference is that all people identifying with this approach had no problem understanding other peoples' decisions. To the contrary, they found it easy running on the assumption that everyone else simply simulated the results of the moral choice for their own environment. This clashes with the basic assumption of egocentrism that the egocentric is unable to see past his/her limited environment.

@H.Muster -> Egocentrism from my understanding is defined by the individual's inability to understand he/she is being egocentric and thus being unable to simulate the same setting in the context of a different person. This is explicitly not the case as the people tested were able to understand choices made by others when "putting themselves in their shoes".

I apologize for the confusing term "experiment". They do not hold up to scientific scrutiny and are thus not a true "experiment" in the scientific sense. I requested 7 people (3 male, 4 female) to make a judgement on a general rule (various rules). Afterwards, I asked each person to trace the process of his/her decision-making. All had issues with this process. When presented with the theory above, 3 out of 7 (1 male, 2 female) agreed that this matched their decision making process - thus my assumption that I'm dealing with a common and perhaps already scientifically examined phenomena.

Yes, that would sum it up nicely in social contexts. However I am observing it as a subconscious routine that several (albeit by far not all) people exposed to experiment are able to recognize in their own decision making and which was unconscious before.
