My personal ethics statement.
A person’s personal ethics are based upon ones core values, and their ability to rationalize a situation and determine the correct behavior. After using the resources provided to me I learned a lot about my own personal ethics. I fall into what is called “Rights and Responsibility and Relationship Lens”. I use my reasoning skills to “determine both the universal rules that each person should follow (autonomy) and the processes that will assure fairness and justice for all in the community (equality)”.
I also learned about my core values, that interdependence is my goal. And combining the rights of individuals with what is best for the community. I am more rational than sensible, I believe in universal rules that apply to everyone. My classic values are temperance and justice, I value individual and social balance within the community. This balance can be accomplished by giving trust and regularly dealing with members of the community. I learned that my key phrase is “I am fair and responsible”.
My definition of ethical behavior is that everyone is responsible for themselves and their obligation to do the right thing in any situation. An ethical person should fulfill that obligation and be fair at the same time. My tools for analyzing problems are simple. I think through a problem and research my options to find the best solution for the job. I usually go with the correct way to solve a problem so that I don’t have to do it twice. I learned that my gift is awareness and justice. Being responsible and doing what is fair is very important to me. As loyalty and consistency are also very important, if I say I am going to do something I do it.
My blind spot would be basically be that sometimes I get a bit blunt when it comes to fairness and even though I might not see it, it can cause unintentional upset and pain in a situation. I can run the risk of being autocratic or authoritarian requiring everyone to do...
