The results of my ethical lens was rationality and sensibility. I see the gifts and the weaknesses of each lens and are able to move fluidly among them to adapt the right tools to each situation to assure the best outcome. I use my reasoning skills (rationality) to determine my duties (autonomy), as well as the universal rules and the systems that will assure fairness and justice for everyone (equality). I also listen and pay attention to my intuition (sensibility) to determine the greatest good for each individual (autonomy), as well as the virtues that will best serve the community (equality).
I have either a mature ability to use the right tools in a given situation or a paralyzed belief that everyone has a valid point. Although each of has a preferred lens, some who are ethically mature and able to use the tools of all the lenses, adapting them as appropriate in a given situation, test in the center of the grid.
Others who test in the center of the grid actually have underdeveloped ethical skills.
Those without skills tend to be paralyzed by their ability to see all sides and too desperate to please everyone. My core values are autonomy and equality equally. You see how protecting individual rights and the well-being of the community work together and check excesses in order to achieve the best outcome.I value rationality and sensibility equally. I believe although there are universal principles, each situation is unique and not all exceptions can be categorized. For me the best solution is both consistent and flexible. This influences my critical thinking by making the best decision based on all factors objectively. I will not make a quick decision because of my research about the particular situation. I think of the outcome and how it affects my surroundings and people involved.
I am comfortable using all available tools to analyze a problem. These include reference to experts, my own past experiences When I research the information and imagining possible solutions, I am making sure I can fulfill my duties; I have developed a consistent process, if possible; and I have made sure that the character traits highlighted are beneficial for a good solution. I will use the results in career by continuing to be innovating and delivering the best results in any situation. The key is my improved critical thinking helps me to reach levels in my career I didn’t think of and now it’s a realistic possibility. My career plan shows that I am very good at delivering results and following directions.
