Please note that my tutorials are just a help and must not be taken as a ready to submit assignment for
geng good grades. I think that good grades cannot be achieved unless you too put in some eorts and
add the concepts that have been taught in the class. No maer how hard we try, our answers are bound
to be a lile generalized because we don’t know what was taught in the class. Take help and if you are
sa$s%ed with the help, leave a posi$ve ra$ng immediately, irrespec$ve of your grade in the exam. This is
because the tutor has spent $me and eort in giving you help and you also need to read and make
changes to the help before subming it formally. If you are not happy with the tutorial, please contact
me rst. I will refund you. You don’t have to rate F (unfair) to get your money back, this is not ethical.

Ethics Awareness Inventory Paper
I was quite fascinated by the Ethics Awareness Inventory and the results. To sum it up in
one word I would use ambiguous. The inventory does seem a bit like fortune cookie
conjuring. I would be interested to learn whether the measure has been empirically

validated. I suppose that speaks to my ethical perspective and ethical style. I,
personally, don’t see how someone could measure ethical conduct except through
measurable results. If the outcome cannot be measured, then there is no way to be
objectively confident that the underlying ethical construct even exists or is of any
consequences to real people. In this paper we will attempt to discuss the role and
importance of personal ethics in psychology, principles, and the Code of Conduct. We
will discuss how ethics can affect how psychological principles to personal, spiritual,
social and organizational issues will be applied. We will assess how ethics affect
psychological knowledge and principles related to personal growth, health, and
development. We will analyze the advantages of psychology as a degree choice as well
as how ethics played a role in our decision to pursue a degree in this particular field.
The Inventory Itself
The inventory begins with a quick introduction
about the process, applicability, and purpose of the measure (Ethics Awareness
Inventory, 2006). It is made clear that ethical decision making is comprised of three
separate tasks: awareness, articulation, and application. I would argue that any
exclusion of the third task would negate any mention of the first two. The point of the
inventory is to identify the CORE belief structure that underlies our ethical choices. The
inventory postulates that this is the first step down the road that culminates in the
application of ethical decision making. The questions in the measure composed of a
partial statement followed by four completing statements. We are asked to finish each
statement with a most liked statement and a least liked statement.
The Results of the Inventory
I scored highest in (R) Results and lowest in (C) Character. I suppose that is because I
do not believe that character exists apart from actions that demonstrate character. The
inventory makes it clear that I believe that talking the talk is not enough but that walking
the walk is also necessary for ethical decision making. I believe that actions, as cliché
as it may sound, honestly do speak louder than a person’s words. The part on my

ethical style was right on the button as well. The effectiveness of ethical character in
society is measured
by the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Character is defined by the
actions that we make, not the words we speak. Words alone mean nothing, when they
are combined with our actions then they represent something much more impactful and
different.
Personal Ethics and Psychology
The inventory states that ethical guidelines have shifted focus as of late from individual
character to organizational ethics. The primary focus of this shift is, “…the misuse of
power and discretion by individuals performing organizational roles” (Ethics Awareness
Inventory, 2006, Introduction). The client-patient relationship in psychological counseling
and clinical practice is built upon ethical guidelines with the potential for misuse of
power and inattention to discretion. My Results-centered approach to psychology would
dictate that the actions of the clinician must be in line with the stated ethical guidelines
of the clinician. Also, my ethical perspective prescribes that the ethical guidelines that
underlie the practice of psychology should seek the greatest good for the greatest
segment.
