Ethical Lens Inventory
As a surprise to me, my ethical viewpoint falls largely in the reputation lens category. The more I read on the characteristics of the reputation lens the more it was clear to me that this lens inventory was right on. It helped define my thought process and the reasons I choose to do the things I do. It allowed me to reflect on my ability of listening to my intuition. It explains why I am so torn at times about what the right thing to do is vice what feels right at that moment. I have a very communal view. I side with the character trait and virtues of what is better for the community. I have always been like that and when I was younger I remember thinking that communism couldn’t possibly be that bad.
I’ve learned through this exercise that my preferred ethical lens not only has many weaknesses but also leads to much confusion. I have always held appointed officials at higher standards only to be disappointed by their more than humanly mistakes. Instead of identifying with people as individuals I associate them by their roles. I develop unrealistic virtues for people with various roles (Catholic diocese).
My gift and what I ultimately consider strength, is my compassion for others. I value equality and “care about the community as a whole and about its individual members”. I am able to relate to people and their situations. Sometimes feeling compassion for people causes conflict in my personal and professional life, as I am torn and find it difficult to hold them responsible for their actions.
I risk becoming self-righteous when I lack compassion for others. I have noticed that in my parenting I tend to disregard constructive criticism. I need to come to the understanding that if I rely too much on my virtues and not gain a proper view of the big picture, I too can become wrapped up in my own agenda. Equality and sensibility are…...

...own decision making strategies allows us to respect each others point of view better.

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.

...or educational setting. The choices we make should be driven by our own ethics. I define ethics as one who does right in any given situation. I have always been the one to take the good with the bad. My personal preferred ethical lens has shown me that I adapt to any situation. I found that I do not have a set ethical lens, but instead am on the middle of being able to adapt to all four lenses. Ethically I view autonomy and equality equally along with rationality and sensibility equally. My lens taught me that because I am able to adapt to each that I do not have a blind spot, but instead an ethical risk. Being that I am so open to everyone’s point of view, I run the risk of being too scared to take action in the situation. At times I have to remember that not everyone has the same ethics as me and I should not try to make everyone’s ethical point of view match mine. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, based on what I have learned from the Ethical Lens Inventory I found that one of my strengths is my gift of balance. Because I see the benefits of each lens, I make decisions based on all four. I believe in using self-knowledge and compassion while making strong decisions and helping people in a beneficial manner. My personal ethics lens shows that I have two major weaknesses. I tend to become the expert of ethics since knowing that I have this well balance of understanding. My personality switches from being at a balance between the four to being superior in the......

...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......

I am able to move through each lens fluidly and adapt the right tools to each situation to get the best outcome. According to my Core Values of Autonomy and Equality, I understand the value of protecting individual rights. I also understand the well-being of a community working together. I know how to combine the two in order to get the best outcome. The Core Values of Rationality and Sensibility allows me to see the uniqueness of each situation. I know that sometimes there are exceptions to the rules or guidelines. I use my reasoning and sensibility skills to determine the greatest good for everyone. The Ethical Lens Inventory Reflection went on to describe that I do not make assumptions on how or why a person may act the way they do or how things need to be done. It stated that I define an ethical person as one who does the right thing. I hold a high standard for myself, but do not judge others who fall short as long as their intentions were honorable.

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.

...My Responses to the Questions Asked 1. Describe your ethical perspectives as identified by the Ethical Lens inventory, including your blind spot, strengths, weaknesses, and values My blind spot in not caring for others as I should, I typical care for myself and leave them to defend themselves. I am prudence and very much afraid of failure, even when failure is not an option. Knowing I will fail but never get up was a good tip to know, I was afraid for a second because refuse to fail. 2. Define what personal ethics means to you and how you apply it within the workplace Personal ethics means you outside of work and what affects you. This goes beyond your job and pretty much comes from home or deal with family in particular. You can apply this to your workplace by taking the good part of the personal parts, that’s positive and use them to get your job done. 3. Select one of the following scenarios. Explain how your personal ethics might help you determine a course of action in this situation. You have been sick all week and did not submit your weekly assignment.

...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......

...The ethical lens inventory is accurate with who I am as a person and my thought process. My lens is a results lens, and it is to the center of the entire lens. What the results lens says about me is I see things in shades of grey; I do not see just black and white. I want to make sure things are fair with other in my personal and work life. When I do solve problems or listen to others, I am not one to make a quick judgments or decisions, I have to sit back and think about all possible outcomes and have a well thought out solution, this can take me a day or two to make that decision. The "Ethicsgame" (2014) website, my behavior is “Doing the Right Thing,” I set very high standards for myself, but I don’t fault others providing they are trying to do the right thing as well. It has taken me a few years to realize that I can’t have high standards for others because they don’t see things the way I do. I have balance; I can use the entire lens spectrum when I need depending on the situation. My blind spot is none; I see the strengths and weaknesses in each of the lens. According to "Ethicsgame" (2014), "Discernment comes with ethical maturity and provides direction in specific situations.” I have always been ethically mature; I believe that comes from my upbringing and being in the military. My strengths are I am flexible with most circumstances, I am open minded, and I believe everyone has good intentions. Where I am weak, I have no patients for ignorance and people who are......

...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.

...persuasive? Why? - I found that Mark Tatum was the most persuasive. He values truthfulness and honesty and values the right of each individual to think about how they will follow their conscience and I think if everyone in the community valued the same, it would make the community a better place. In my opinion the least persuasive was Alex Smith. He states that he wants to make sure that the choices we make as a community should be good for everyone but I think as individuals, we all have our opinions on what we would all consider as “good.” Question 2: Did the perspective you found persuasive mirror your result from the Ethical Lens Inventory? Where did you see similarities and differences? - I believe the perspective I found most persuasive mirrors my result from the Ethical Lens Inventory. We both shared the same Rights/Responsibilities Lens. We both value truthfulness and honesty. From the e-mail, I don’t think there are any differences because I felt that if I were in the position to write an e-mail, I would say the same exact thing.
