Interestingly, moral sequencing accounts for cases ofpersonality change (evidenced in various clinical populations)and can help explain: why Deliberator might be justified inintervening earlier in situations where Initiator undergoes apersonality change during a moral sequence; and why thisInitiator might be attributed less moral responsibility for theiractions (thereby vindicating their claim that early-sequenceInitiator and late-sequence Initiator are {"}not the same people{"}).",
