Which is worse? Hurting someone's feelings by telling the truth? Or telling a lie and protecting their feelings?
Which is it worse to be: Unmerciful or unfair?
The Center for Ethics and Business at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles has assembled a short, but insightful, quiz, including questions such as these, to gauge your ethical style.
As an explanation accompanying the quiz points out, the results show how strongly the person taking the test prefers one or another of two major styles for recognizing and resolving ethical dilemmas.
The higher one's "J" score, the more he or she relies on an "ethic of justice." The higher one's "C" score, the more he or she prefers an "ethic of care."
Neither style is better than the other, but they are different, according to the Center for Ethics and Business -- and most people rely on each style to a greater or lesser degree.
