Micro Learnings

Ethical Blindness

People often have an inappropriate view on reality. In addition, they could have difficulty interpreting reality, which leads to misconceptions or misperceptions, and, eventually, even to ethical blindness. After all, when making decisions, people are embedded in context. This context may be so strong that one feels forced to take certain decisions. Some of these feelings may be experienced only unconsciously, leading to a certain automatic acting, as if someone is on autopilot. This way, one can become ethically blind, meaning that one is unaware of making wrong decisions.

This series of micro-learnings consists of the following video lessons, as well as an exam:

1. Environmental influences
2. Subjectivity of ethicalness
3. Ethical versus unethical cultures
4. Complexity of today’s world
