Chess, fishing, poker, and even Irish dancing.

These ‘sports’ cheating scandals have attracted a lot of attention lately.

The reaction from the public makes it clear that society looks down on cheaters.

Maurice Schweitzer is a professor at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

He studies emotions, trust and ethical decision making and says that our reaction to cheating might tell us something deeper about human nature and why we care about people cheating to get ahead.
