Tip #488: Are Your Decisions Consistent With Your Ethics?

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.”Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’ve been researching heutagogy, which is concerned with self-determined learning. (There will be a Tip about heutagogy after I’ve gotten a better handle on what it is and how it works.)

I wanted to see examples of self-determined learning and was directed to the Virtual Philosopher at the site below:


You’re asked a series of questions about your personal ethics. Then you’re given various situations where you have to make decisions that test your ethics.

I found out that the decisions I made were generally inconsistent with my ethics. This has forced me to think more seriously about my ethics and beliefs.

The quiz is very short but very telling.

I’ll be interested to hear about your results.

May your learning be sweet.
