Where are your styles complementary, and in what ways do your styles differ?
The course textbook identifies four individual decision-making styles: individualist, altruist, pragmatist, and idealist. In this activity, your instructor will assign you to a group of your peers, and each group will be assigned its own discussion forum. Each member of the group will take on the characteristics of one of the four decision-making styles and explain how that style would affect the way he or she would communicate, negotiate, and apply this to interpersonal situations.
Once the individualist, the altruist, the pragmatist, and the idealist have all submitted their posts, compare the decision-making styles of the others with your own.
Where are your styles complementary, and in what ways do your styles differ? How would you approach working together to make an ethical decision? What strengths and weaknesses of each style should be considered during the decision-making process?
