dc.description.abstract The use of all pervasiveness of Information technology has thrown up social issues that are to be dealt with. The invasion of privacy is one such issue. How individuals deal with this issue is a function of their ethical logic or framework that is used to address these issues. Through a process of socialization, an individual develops a set of ideologies or logic that he/she uses in the process of ethical decision making. Culture and religious prescriptions are major sources of these ideologies besides the more manifest practical logic. This paper explores to begin with, peopleâ s perceptions of ethicality of privacy invasion by the use of IT, when the individual is the actor and when he is the target for the same situation. In a study of ethics, it is not enough to assess peopleâ s perception of ethicality, it is equally important to explore the cognitive logic underlying those perceptions. Hence the paper also explores the cognitive logics that people use for their perception. Responses of 366 executives working in different IT firms in India, on a structured questionnaire are analyzed. Results show a significant difference in perception of respondent when they are target and when they are actors. Result also show that people uses different logics for different situations. en
