Moral Imagination Assessment
After conducting the moral assessment, I scored 56 for reproductive, 24 for productive, and 26 for creative. Instead of consistently applying moral-ethical principles in situations, I perceive the circumstances of a given situation with moral sensitivity and perceptiveness. I assess each situation and its direct or indirect impact on other people and how the affected parties would consider impacts on their welfare. I respond to each situation emotionally without harming others in the same situation. The reproductive imagination enables me to respond to situations as they occur appropriately.
The score reveals that I need to improve on finding solutions that fit the given situations regarding creative moral imagination. I need to be adept at interpreting and applying rules thinking beyond the normalized moral canons. I need to improve on productive imagination on accounting for new possibilities in developing solutions to moral issues as they occur. As described in the textbook, we should be able to “generate new options” (Johnson 84) instead of relying on usual problem-solving techniques. I should always imagine new solutions to a problem instead of using already established solutions.
Yes, I agree with the self-assessment outcome because I respond to problems by assessing their direct and indirect impact on others. However, I have problems with thinking creatively and productively in finding solutions to these problems. I need to improve on creative and productive moral imagination to improve my moral reasoning.
My decision-making process entails understanding the ethical issues involved in a given situation, assessing its impacts, and developing a strategy to overcome the issues. In the past, I encountered a pregnant woman who fainted on her way to the hospital. I was faced with the ethical issue of saving the baby and mother’s life or run away from the situation. I discovered that running from the situation would lead to the death of two people. I decided to call an ambulance, which immediately came and rushed the lady to the hospital. The decision aligns with my score on the moral imagination scale.
