The focus of the relationship shifts from “this is what I want, so I'll give everyone the same thing" to "let me first understand what they want and then I'll give that to them." It is a more considerate and sensitive moral guideline than its predecessor which ignores the wishes of the recipients in favour of imposing the giver's preferences onto others in a misguided attempt at kindness. The Platinum Rule, or at least its name, might be unfamiliar to most, but
I believe that ethics are very important in creating the moral fiber of each and every individual. When you are young you are taught the basics, such as stealing is bad, cheating is wrong, and you should always tell the truth and many of us try to live by this simple rules. We must also remember that not everyone believes that ethics is based on reasoning but on emotions and intuition. There are many different believes about ethical living I believe that to live ethically you just need to sit a standard for the way you want to live and the way you want to be treated. Allowing any one to belittle you or your beliefs is unethical.
In other way we can state that it is always moral to promote self-interest and it is not moral not to promote it. So it is a moral duty of every person to pursue his or her own interest. According to Ethical Egoism, there is only one ultimate principle of conduct, the principle of self-interest, and this principle sums up all of one’s natural duties and obligations. The only way, through which you can help others, according to Ethical Egoism, if it is in someone’s best interest to help others. Ethical Egoism talks only about the self-interest which is better for the person over long run.
a) From a Deontological standpoint, what do you say? Why? A Deontological theory states that at least some actions are right and wrong, therefore we have an obligation to perform them or refrain from performing them, without consideration of the consequences. This theory follows the belief that our actions should be universal which means that everyone would act the same way with the same set of circumstances. It would be difficult to decide what to say, because I would want to be told the truth but would also want the best end result.
Respecting other will play a huge role in how others see you as well. Of course, there are a few people who do not deserve your respect, but you should always work towards treating people the way you would like to also be treated. You should be honest with people, do not insult one another, cause no harm, and do not steal from anyone. Respecting property would be the third behavior expectation. If you have ever had something taken away from you, one would know how it makes them feel when their property was not respected.
Superson’s goal is to defeat the skeptic and does not believe self-interest is sufficient enough to do so. I understand the approach Superson is making about self-interest but I don’t think she is looking at all aspects of the topic. I think people will always act in self-interested ways regardless of the circumstances; people act according to their dispositions, not by force, unless they are being coerced of course. It is human nature to instinctively maximize our personal utility. We act in ways that we see fit, whether or not an act is considered moral is completely dependent upon the individual.
Ethics area a code of conduct we are all expected to follow so we tend to respect the guide lines that are put in place a normal behavior to be considered as society norms. In field of psychology discipline is no exception in fact it is a most when it comes to ethics and code of conduct. These ethics and codes are particularly important since scientific discipline usually deals with unsound individuals. It is extremely import to not counsel anyone. Work at a rehab people will ask you opinion and in giving that opinion you are crossing the line of counseling in many cases.
Assumptions should play no part in critical thinking but unfortunately they do, and often. I know as humans we all make snap judgments, but the idea is to push aside our assumptions and judgments when we think critically. Thinking critically is a skill that you either have or you don’t, the ones who have it will ultimately be the ones to thrive in their respective fields. Though it may be difficult to avoid making assumptions, as professionals we have no choice. We can keep our assumptions to ourselves but unless we consider all aspects of the situation we are not thinking critically.
Ethics can be influenced by one’s culture, background, and environment. Ethical behavior can be taught but that does not mean one is ethical. I believe how an individual conducts himself when faced with an ethical dilemma is what makes him who he is. An ethical dilemma is defined as “Situations concerning right and wrong where values are in conflict” either for the individual or for the organization (Trevino & Nelson, 2007, p. 3). Through these interactions people can learn and continue to grow in respect to their ethical beliefs.
Despite of how influential is our own culture on our beliefs and behaviours we must be aware that we are not coming from the one and only “valuable” culture in the world. People often tend to believe that their own values and beliefs are the only “right” ones as they are embedded in their particular cultures. We must be aware that each of us, each singular culture might shine in a different way, but that does not mean someone else’s light is less bright than ours. We must respect, mind and understand others differences in order to communicate efficiently and realize that these dissimilarities do not makes us weak ,they are actually the source of our strength.
