I work around a bunch of ethical issues and with a lot of different types. It got me thinking about what types may be inclined to think that the end justifies the means or visa versa.
At first I thought that an Si person may be the one who figures that if you take each logical "right" next step, then the end will be favorable. Ne thinking that there would be a "right" end goal, and take whatever steps to achieve it. I wasn't sure about the other two- perhaps similarly grouped, or perhaps Se would go with Ne, and Ni would go with Si in this case. Then I thought that perhaps an NF would want to look at the entire situation and be right all around, (being inclined to think about these things anyways- ending up similar to the SJ in this situation.) NT's and SP's may be looking for the end result. Then I figured that an Fi may be inclined to take it on a situation to situation basis- values well defined and deciding subjectively and situationally. Where Te may be looking for a certain generally "right" end that applies to a wide variety of situations. Or just the simple T vs. F in general. (Well, the list goes on and on.)
Anyway, that, and other ethical values- who places importance on what?
What's your type, and ethical code? (You can include other definitions besides just ends/means.)
Also, I was looking at this website- some values are basic, others that I didn't know had a definition.
