Some noted that Blasian moral identity is limited only to moral behavior that is the product of effortful deliberation and explicit invocation of the moral law and so misses everyday morality that is driven by tacit or automatic processes (Shao, Aquino, & Freeman, 2008). The theory also fails to specify just when moral identity is evinced, and under what conditions (Nucci, 2004). Indeed, moral self-​identity is assumed, on the standard account, to be an adhesive personal quality that carries strong evaluation and second-​order volitions across contexts as if impervious to situational complexity (Leavitt, Zhu, & Aquino, 2016; Jennings, Mitchell, & Hannah, 2015).
