Ethical Lens Results
After participating in the Ethics Game Simulation about the Ethical Lens Inventory, I
found my preferred ethical lens is the Result Lens with mild Sensibility and Considerable
Autonomy. The vantage point is represented with a magnifying glass for the results lens. This
helps to represent how my ethical self is seen as its own person with its own goals. This lens
show confidence in decisions, but looks for outcomes that are both good for oneself and the
community or those involved. I found that I use experience as my analytical tool when deciding
what is most valued when determining how to solve an ethical dilemma. Many of the topics
under the results lens talks about being mutually respectful and what would result in all parties
being happy. This is very similar to how I make decisions or even give advice. I try to look at
everyone involved and understand the different sides before speaking.

this theory was founded by Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill, English philosophers and
economists, who said an action is right if it tends to promote happiness and wrong if it tends to
produce the reverse of happiness (Duignan & West, 2020). The philosophy of utilitarianism can
be thought of in terms of “the ends justify the means” (David, 2019). If the result of an action
was for the overall good, then being unethical with the action was justified. For example, if you
were to steal a piece of bread it would be unethical to steal but if that stolen piece of bread was
to feed your child than it can be seen as the end result was for good. It’s an ethical theory that
judges whether or not something is right by what its consequences are (Ethics Unwrapped,
