In the Ethical Lens Inventory exercise, I learned more about my ethical perspective. My primary principles are autonomy, equality, rationality and sensibility. In order to achieve the best outcome, I looked to how protect personal rights and the welfare of the society. My classic values are temperance, prudence, justice and fortitude. Depending on what the situation requires, I can work with every principles. I value personal equilibrium and take control of my desires so I can accomplish my obligations.
I demonstrate understanding in different areas and establish control when difficulties arise. In the preferred lens the results shows that I don’t have a chosen one (periscope or paralysis).
I see the positive aspects and debilities of the individual lenses. I used my reasoning skills to determine my responsibilities, as well as the rules and the systems that assure justice for everyone and that I used my intuition to determine positive aspects for each person. My ethical behavior is doing the right thing.
The experiences in my life has taught me to always do the correct thing and to hold this standard for myself, but in the same hand, by no judging others for their mistakes. I am very objective and understanding person and I continually try not to judge anyone for the way the think or act. Also, I am very traditional and always respect the individual values of every person, and even if I operate from a clear set of values, I don’t make conclusions about how people should performs their activities.

When I have a conflict or problem with another person, I try to look for a ways to resolve or harmonize the situation. I used my reason or critical thinking, experience, leadership abilities and tradition to analyze any problem, search for possible solutions and finally take decisions that promotes the good and benefit for every party. The inventory shows that I don’t have a blind spot and that I am able to see the positive aspects and debilities of each lens and get along with my four core values.
Some risk that I have to be aware is the inaction of take a decision when difficulties arises. This is definitively right because sometimes in my daily living I know some situations or things that I know I have to take action or make a decision, but I tend to paralyze or repeatedly search for others solutions when I already have one in my hand. My temptation is the superiority. If I not pay attention, I can be tempted to believe that I am an expert and be convince that I have all the answers and have no need of any input from others.
My vice is to be insistence on agreement and may insist that people around me approve choices before revise carefully every option. My crisis is the confusion and unless I improve my thinking skills and reflect in the consequences of my decisions I can loss my direction. The disadvantage of understand everyone else’s standpoints is that I can lose my own point of view or believes.
Finally, to be able to see clearly every situation I must follow my own instincts and trusts, analyze the situation and take a decision with assurance. To do this, I must contemplate the situation and then use my reasoning skills to determine which options or decisions are best. In conclusion I believe this Ethical Lens Inventory exercise is very helpful. Understanding my personal ethical viewpoint will help to improve my strength and work with my weaknesses so I can be able to have success personally and professionally.
