A critical insight provided by sociobiology has been the adaptive value of other-interested drives—those that cultivate perceptions of warmth in others. 28 Advances in Experimental Moral Psychology If competence-based traits motivate behaviors that contribute to specialization, then warmth-based traits motivate behaviors that contribute to the desire to exchange the fruits of such specialization. A balance of these motivations maximizes long-term well-being. Societies composed of individuals with intentions to act warmly toward others as well as the capacity to act on those intentions will best achieve long-term collective well-being.
But it is indeed a departure from the norm to posit the moral relevance of competencebased traits. Those who might worry that this argument champions the moral value of self-focused states over other-focused states need not worry. It does not challenge the view that perceptions of warmth will always remain morally relevant to perceivers. Instead, it simply proposes a change in the relative moral relevance of warmth and competence judgments as a function of the time horizon over which these judgments are made.
