Ethical Type Indicator

Starter Kit for up to 5 Participants
Select Components:

How do you resolve the ethical and moral dilemmas that arise in your life? Can you identify, articulate, and defend the ethical principles that govern and influence your ethical and moral decision-making? What ethical type are you? Learn the answers to these questions with Ethical Type Indicator. 

How It Works

The instrument consists of 42 statements reflective of one of six ethical theories. The tool is easy to complete and self-scoring takes only a few minutes. There are no right or wrong answers. Respond with personal honesty and candor to:

  • Discover your primary ethical decision-making preference or ethical type
  • Assess the degree to which you are influenced by ethical principles
  • Become empowered to recognize, analyze and resolve future ethical dilemmas

Sample statements:

  • Do you regard written codes of conduct as helpful in resolving ethical dilemmas?
  • Do you believe the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few?
  • Are the thoughts, feelings and beliefs of friends an important consideration?
