    The above is definitely BIASed.

    Personally, theres no grey area to ethics.... is there? Either you do or you don't, either your ethical in your decisions and practice or your not ethical... Can you truely be ethical once in a while and achieve a true semi-ethical practice?

    I suppose it could be argued that to be truely ethical someone else has to percieve what your doing as ethical... meaning that from one person to the next the question of ethics is based purely on your personal view of the ethical decision/practice in question.

    Seems odd, but if thats the case I could view murdering the competetion as not-ethical and then donate company resources to charity the next day and make up for my non-ethical with ethical... achieving a balance? *ponders*

    Odd question to me, but then i'm just an uneducated Canadian.

    By definition, this is a philosophical term

    Ethics, also known as moral philosophy, is a branch of philosophy that addresses questions about morality—that is, concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice, etc.

    No. I meant in terms of job ethics as to whether the question was a ranking of job requirements or a ranking of what professions had the most/least ethical members?

    In other words, are you asking for opinions as to which professions require more attention to ethical considerations? Or are you asking for opinions as to which professions have the most/least ethical persons?

    Are you trying to gauge the perceived ethical values or perceived ratio of ethical vs. nonethical members of each profession? Because I doubt anyone on this forum has done any sort of study on the type of person (ethical or not) that tends to be drawn towards each profession.

    No doubt, you can pick members of any of those listed professions and find some that are ethical in all their dealings, and others who will bend any rule to further their personal agenda. Plastic surgeons, for example, work (ethically) to give normal appearances to people suffering from birth defects or disfiguring accidents; they also get rich (unethically) by doing cosmetic surgery on people who look fine, but have self-acceptance issues. Any profession has its share of bad apples, and I have no way of knowing what that share is, per profession.

    Surely it's not the job that is ethical or unethical (except in extreme cases such as illegal or exploitative jobs) but the conduct of the individual while performing that job?

    The most creditable roles when performed ethically would be the ones with the greatest moral responsibility, such as Family Court Judge and Criminal Lawyer. The least creditable would be the ones that are most strongly motivated by achieving profit through manipulation, such as New Car Sales Representative and Stockbroker. There are also some that only have a minimal moral dimension at all, like Computer Programmer. However, if the conduct of the person performing the job is unethical, then the most creditable jobs also hold the worst potential for abuse.
