...Ethical Lens Inventory RaJonne Mitchell ETH/316 10/12/2012 S. Edington In talking to a friend, how would you describe your ethical perspective as identified by the Ethical Lens Inventory, including your blind spot, strengths, weaknesses, and values? After reviewing my results for the ethical lens, I do agree with what I found. My core values stated that my concern is protecting individual rights, and that I believe this is the best way to assure that everyone in the community is treated fairly, which it true. I do tend to look at the bigger picture than just the individual numbers. My blind spot says that I am content with little too good, which is the correct way to explain my personality. I tend to leave problems unresolved when I become satisfied with my own needs, leaving others to deal with their own situation however they like. What does the term personal ethics mean to you? Personal ethics to me is like an imaginary line of right and wrong. It varies depending on the situation, but one should always handle each situation as its own. The saying “do onto other as you would want other to do onto you” is a great slogan for my beliefs in personal ethics, always place yourself in the next persons shoes. Don’t jump to conclusions, figure out what is best, and think about what is the right (legal) thing to do. How might your personal ethics help you to determine a course of action in a situation? Personal ethics will help you come to a more......

...we apply when resolving ethical conflict, understanding others as well as our own decision making strategies allows us to respect each others point of view better. Ethical Lens Inventory is used as way to identify what values are more important to you as an individual and what their challenges and strengths are. The inventory allows you to see ethical issues clearly and learn how to resolve them better. Being aware that people have different priorities and different values helps to respects each other’s point of views. My personal preferred lens is Rights/responsibility and results lens. Rights/Responsibility Lens is for people who think thoroughly through a problem and options before taking action and choosing a decision-making strategy. The symbol for this lens is the Telescope. On a telescope you look beyond what is at your reach to determine what to do. The strength of this lens is considering all the options possible leading to a stronger decision making strategy for others and your self. Its weakness is over analyzing to find a solution and making it time consuming. Also when there are so many options in hand it can become overwhelming to choose one. Result Lens is for people who need their intuition to verify that their answer is not only correct but also fair. The symbol for this lens is the microscope. When using a microscope you analyze and examine before taking the next step, which is a good way to relate to the result lens. Its strength is......

...Results of my Ethical Lens Inventory and Career Plan Building Activity: Aptitude My results in the Ethical Lens Inventory and Career Plan Building Activity: Reasoning Aptitude, came as no surprise. I feel that they both reflect my personality along with how I academically do things. I believe these both will help me in the near future. I think my results in the Ethical Lens Inventory had a great perspective of who I am. My ethical behavior is doing the right thing, which I agree, because I hold strong standards for myself. My values, core and classical, state that I see how the community as one should work together in order to achieve the best outcome. I also value the individual balance as I seek to satisfy my duties. I have strong balance with no blind spot, and I make ethical choices for myself and others. I like my results in, Tools for analyzing problems because, I use critical thinking skills, which I believe is a huge part of life.

Ethical Lens Report

...Ethical Lens Report I was pleasantly surprised to find that after completing the ethical lens inventory it really did tell a lot about who I am and how I make decisions based off of my ethical viewpoints. There were many eerily similar things that I do in real life that matched what the print out said about my ethics. First off my preferred lens is the “Rights and Responsibility Lens” which says that I am a rational person and care about others view points and that each person follows a set or universal rules (autonomy). This lens fits me to a T, I find that I do try and rationalize many things in my life to either determine their validity or to exonerate it. I value autonomy over equality. This states that I would rather care more for individual rights. I moderately prefer rationality over sensibility I would rather find the reasoning in a situation than to follow others to an unknown path. My values Temperance, I know who I am and can act with integrity. I achieve my duties through individual balance. I personally do well at the supervisor position at work and my personal life I like to be in charge and take control of situations I do not like to follow. I believe that motive justifies method which is my blind spot. I see this is my day to day life. I think that just because I believe in the rules and follow them that everyone does the same. Which causes me disappointment, I try and prove my points to others and have a good mind set not to hurt others in the process...

Ethical Lens

...Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection In life, individuals use their reasoning skills, which are based on values and perspectives, in determining their choices, their ethical decisions. The Ethical Lens Inventory is an excellent personal evaluation tool designed to help us understand and teach us to be aware of how we prioritize our ethical values, as well as to decrease the likelihood of unnecessary conflict, and to encourage wise ethical decisions. Personally, I identified specific characteristics I need to employ and others that require improvement. My preferred lens is Rights, Responsibility, and Relationship. This means I utilize my reasoning abilities to establish universal rules each person should follow. I believe in processes that ensure impartiality and justness for everyone. My core values revolve around autonomy, equality, and rationality. Interdependence is the goal, and we should harmonize the rights of individuals for the good of the community. In this type of core value, a person prioritizes the value of rationality over sensibility. My classic values are temperance and justice. I commend personal restraint in the desires for pleasure, when there are duties to be addressed. “I am fair and responsible,” is my motto. I believe that humans should value the fair system that all men are created equal in order to maintain an ethical result. Ethical behavior is satisfying your duties and doing the right thing, as a fully responsible adult. I use reason......

...Ethical Lens Inventory Ethical Lens Inventory After completing the Ethical Lens Inventory, my personal preferred lens is Rights and Responsibility and Relationship Lens. It states that I use my reasoning skills to determine both the universal rules that each person should follow and the processes that will assure fairness and justice for all in the community. How I might use my personal ethics to determine a course of action, is by making the right choices so I won’t have to suffer bad consequences. For instance, I should dedicate a certain amount of time to homework and/or studying to pass a class, if not I would have to take the class all over again, which I would not enjoy seeing myself go through that. My blind spot is the belief that motive justifies method or Overconfidence in process; because I believe that a consistent process results in a just outcome for all. This is basically telling me that I don’t care about how others complete their tasks and that I am really only focused on getting the task completed in a certain way. I believe my strength is Seeing Clearly, basically listening to my heart. I have to ensure that both my head and heart agrees with the same thing. Another strength I have is Self-Awareness and Justice, meaning if I know I have to do something, I have to go ahead and just do it. My weakness is being autocratic or authoritarian, which means everything has to be done my way. I don’t think this is true, I believe I am......

Ethical Lens Inventory

...The result of my “Ethical Lens Inventory” were that I use rational reasoning skills to determine both, the universal rules that each person should follow and the processes that will ensure fairness and justice for all in the community. What this means is that I like to gather all the information, research all available options, and think things through carefully before I make a decision. I also like to make sure my decisions are equally fair and beneficial to everyone, regardless of the time that it may take. These are the same skills that I use academically as well. I like to make sure that I complete all my assignments with well thought out, researched and prepared material. I will work tirelessly to achieve the best possible material, again, no matter how long it takes. The results of my “Ethical Lens Inventory” show that I am a critical thinker by nature. Again by me carefully analyzing, researching, and thoroughly thinking things through to come up with the best possible solution. I have always believed that it is only fair that I give a problem or situation my all, regardless whether it is for work, personal or academically. The results of my “Reasoning Abilities” in My Career Plan Building Activity were on the same lines as my “Ethical Lens Inventory”. I am a person that works well in careers where success comes from apply practical skills and where thinking is used mostly to solve problems. It also states that I am likely to be attracted to...

Ethical Lens

...My preferred lens is results lens and reputation lens. I tend to follow my intuition and what I believe will be best for the community or group as a whole. I agree with this because I do follow my heart more than I follow my mind. My blind spot states that I believe that people in certain positions can’t fail; no matter that they are human just like me. I know this to be truth because I look at preachers and teachers as people in positions that just should not mess up. I know that this is a very harsh way of thinking, but I’m just glad for it to be explained to me why I think this way. One of my strengths is free will and compassion. In the description of this I found even more truth about myself. If I want something for myself I get it done and try to make it easier and more accessible for others. My weaknesses are many. One weakness was described as being self-righteous, meaning that I would think I deserve perks and privileges because of my position. My vice was becoming greedy and hard hearted. The description states that if I don’t ground myself then I could find myself taking from people all that I can get away with. I am going to work had at all that I do so that this never happens to me. The results stated that I needed to align my thoughts and choices with my heart along with my mind also. My key phrase is “I make virtuous choices that are good for everyone. My core values balances between self and others. Again it restates that I use my heart to make important......

...The results of my Ethical Lens Aptitude test show me some of my strong areas. It showed that I am strong at following instructions, adhering to values, delivering results, organizing and cooperating. It also showed me that I’m not so strong at adapting to change. As far as applying my results to my academic writing, I know that I am good at following the teacher’s instructions, delivering on time, organizing my thoughts and cooperating with others. Knowing my strongest and weakest points, I can try to apply them to my critical thinking skills. For example, I know that I’m strong when it comes to following instructions, so I will think critically about whatever topic my teacher gives me. Follow the directions and come up with good ideas about the topic. I will also use my critical thinking skills to deliver on time with good results. I will stay organized while thinking critically to produce good ideas. My result for my career plan aptitude was basically the same. My strong points are following instruction, adhering to values, delivering results, organization and cooperation. As far as applying my result to my classroom, I know what areas I am strong in and what areas I need to work on. I’m not too big on change, so I know where that comes from. But it's something that I can work on. As far as my strengths, being able to follow directions and delivering results will only benefit me in the classroom. It lets me know that I will not have a problem doing what the teacher expects......

...Reflection of Group Assignments with Utilization of Professional Ethical Lens Inventory INTRODUCTION “Knowing’ ethical theories, principles, values, and morals, and ‘understanding’ how to apply them must go hand in hand” (Pozgar, 2013, p. 173). We have been asked to view many different ethical dilemmas and decide which course of action would best fit the given situation. There is no right or wrong choice. Each ethical decision is based upon the make up of one’s morality. “It is a guide to behavior that all rational persons would put forward for governing the behavior of all moral agents” (Pozgar, 2013, p. 57). To better understand our individual morality, we were asked to complete a series of 36 questions that would determine our own ethical viewpoint and how we utilize it to come to a conclusion. According to Baird, there are four ethical frameworks that are utilized upon attempting to solve an ethical dilemma. These frameworks are based upon four core values: rationality, sensibility, autonomy, and equality. Each framework is compromised of two of these four values. (Baird, 2005) There were two different scenarios that were completed individually in which we had to make an ethical decision based upon our own ethical lens. We then came together as a group to make the same decision again, but this time the decision needed to be made unanimously. Many frameworks were represented as we worked through each scenario and choice to come to a clear consensus. These......

...Allison Vergonia January 30, 2012 Gen 200 Ethical Lens Inventory I enjoyed taking the Ethical Lens Inventory test. The results gave me a better understanding on how my moral and personal ethics coincide. My results indicate that my preferred ethical lens is the Reputation Lens. Some of the values that take priority are, Integrity, Justice, Courage, and civility. The Reputation Lens defines an action ethical if, “it is consistent with the habitual development of sound character traits including habits of thoughtful reflection, good intentions and noble human virtues.” I believe in fairness and honesty. I’m not so quick to make decisions and judgments. I think that this is a great quality, but it can be frustrating sometimes. I find that weighing out the pros and cons when having to make a judgment call is fair but can also are tedious. My blind spot is “Unrealistic Role Expectations”. I found this to be very interesting. When I am given a job I accomplish it with the best of my ability. This includes being honest, fair and loyal, I also expect these virtues to be important to my co-workers as well. I will take my blind spot in consideration when I’m working in a group and individually. My strengths are that I’m compassionate and I look for solutions that focus on virtues that are valued by the community. The vantage point it retains is an icon of opera glasses as well as a camera. The opera glasses “help us to see the stage on which we are all playing”. ......

...2Personal Ethical StatementEthics are values that are nurtured in an individual by society and personal experience. Ilike to believe that I have grown up in an upstanding society where respect, honesty and fairnessare valued above all, and my experience has taught me to cherish these values just as much. Bynature, I am a very reflective individual, and I usually spend a lot of time thinking about theconsequences of my actions before I make a move. I always try to encompass the good of thewhole in whatever I do, and I was surprised to find that this was exactly what the ethical lensexercise says about my ethical code of conduct.According to the ethical lens inventory, my preferred ethical lenses are the results lensand the reputation lens. I tend to believe that an action is ethical if the results that come from itare good and create the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people.

I prioritize efficiency, civility, integritycourage and loyalty; and I believe that people should strive to maximize the satisfaction of thosewho are depending on them while avoid conflicts of interest at all times (University of Phoenix,2011).From the material in the Ethics Game, it seems that I also value sensibility to a certaindegree, and that I occasionally follow my heart to make choices.
