Unit 3 Assignment 2 - Personal CommunicaTon Ethics Statement (Por±olio) Values and ethics are with us every day and how we choose to use them defines us as people. All of us need to make immediate and wise decisions. The choices we make should be driven by our own ethics. I believe that people need good ethics to promote a healthy and positive environment for ourselves and others. I always assumed my personal ethical viewpoint is that everything should be equal and fair. After looking at how I interact with others, I found that I use my rationality to determine how I can ensure equality to all others. I learned that my unseen area is that I trust too much in just outcomes in every situation. I tend to forget that although every person should have equal access, not everyone does. Even though I want everything to be fair, I know it is not and I often rely on ethical decisions to come up with a fair system. We all have our strengths and weaknesses.
