6. Principled Conscience orientation—a universal principled level of moral and ethical behavior where people behave because of their individual conscience.
When we live honest, decent, ethical, virtuous, and morally good lives, we make life more meaningful and better not only for ourselves but for everyone else around us. When we change for the better we help make the whole world a little better. The Greek and Jewish philosophers all believed this, the science of psychology affirms this, and deep down inside we all know this to be true (natural law). Mahatma Gandhi said: We must become the change we want to see. So if we want to make our world a better place to live in, then, individually, each one of us must change for the better. Change yourself and you’ll change the world.
