Ethics Reflection and Values The Williams Institute Ethics Awareness Inventory (Williams, 2006) provided me with feedback referencing my values. Upon completing the assessment a summary was provided which sketched my ethical perspective and style. The inventory most closely aligns my ethical profile with (R) Results. My ethical perspective is based on the results or consequences of my actions.

AND “What is best for the greater good of society may not be best for you” (Williams, 2006).
