Personal Code of Ethics 2 In developing a personal code of ethics, much will depend upon one’s particular ideas about life his or her beliefs system. Personal codes of ethics influence us a lot in our everyday activities. They influence us in our decisions, the way we interact with others depending upon their nature, the way we choose our close friends, the way we behave, the way we show our anger and tolerance. Personal codes of ethics are the nature of person that shows in his actions and behaviors. They are naturally made depending on our preferences, the society we live, and their influence on us. Developing your own personal code of ethics is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. Parents are the first level of influence from childhood. From my parents I learned what is right and what is wrong in today's world. They taught me how to respect others and how to behave with others, never show your anger, or try to hurt anybody. The way they take care of us right from childhood until we become independent. That shows that you should be responsible enough to take care of your family and your younger brother's and sister's in the family. They teach us the value of the family. Second level of influence are friends and teachers in the school and college, fortunately I always got good friends. That helped me understand the value of friendship. Teachers help understand the value of knowledge, and how the knowledge will increase if you share that with others; they help us choose the right career path. Third level of influence is workplace environment, the team you are working with, and your colleagues. At the workplace, you learn many things, good & bad. As good ethics what I learned is collaboration, co-operation. At the same time, you come across many bad things too but it solely depends on you what you take it. I always try to stay away from office politics but sometimes others force you and you unknowingly become part of it and whatever you do but you cannot avoid it. No

According to author David Peters, (2003) “Personal ethics have been defined as principles of good behavior, a moral code of conduct, or a system to decide between competing options. But simply stated, personal ethics are nothing more than the rules we impose on ourselves that govern our daily actions.” Personal ethics and values are codes of conduct that help us live in this society. Who helps us take on these values?
