The following ethical assessment was created by Jason Merchey, M.S. and Peter Raabe, Ph.D. to determine how you view moral decision-making, ethics, and which “moral approach” you tend to prefer. It is called The Ethical Decision-Making Guide. Spend twenty minutes reflecting on the statements you are presented with (not too much thought, but don’t rush through it). Rate them each on a scale of 1-10. Your preference for different ways of making ethical decisions (i.e., your favored “approach") will be ranked from highest to lowest by the computer. Step away from the computer if you need to; you can come back to it in a while. You must rank all statements for the test to work out correctly. If you cannot determine how “attracted” you are to a particular sentence, enter a 5 for a neutral ranking.
You will then receive information and feedback based on the “moral theory” you most prefer (in other words, your preferred approach). This is useful information because you will know more about yourself and be able to think more critically when faced with a dilemma or a situation that involves morality. You will know more about what it means, to you, to “do the right thing.” You can also compare your preference with the moral preferences your friends and family hold.
By clicking here, you agree to receive feedback and suggestions about your ethical theory results, values, inspiration, and wisdom. It’s free, and your email address won’t be traded or sold.
