Evidence from human psychology that supports the presence of the Lucifer effect is the perspective of moral and immoral behavior in human beings. “If what stops someone from engaging in immoral behavior is the fear of feeling immoral, then having engaged in unambiguously moral behavior beforehand could put that fear to rest, and, paradoxically, license later immoral behavior.” (Jordan & Monin) To support this Nisan has provided a balance for model for morality whereby humans as individuals weigh their good deeds and moral behavior against their evil deeds and immoral behavior.

The significant accumulation of moral deeds can prompt an individual to conduct immoral actions as they can be compensated by the massive collection of moral deeds. This depicts how a normal and ethical person can become evil when given the opportunity and removed from society as depicted in the Lucifer effect by Zimbardo.
