PSY 265 Sexuality and Value Systems CheckPoint The value system that I most relate to is that of rationalism. I like to step back and examine what the possible consequences may be before making any decisions. I do not tend to make any spur of the moment decisions without thinking everything through first. I also believe that I relate somewhat to utilitarianism because I like to do what is best for both me and others who may be affected. Overall I would definitely say that I relate more to rationalism while also relating to certain aspects of utilitarianism. I cannot relate to hedonism or asceticism at all. I do not let the “heat of the moment” impair my judgment like that of hedonism.

Every situation is different, which means that our reactions to these situations will be different as well. Our own personal morals will help us make the decision that we believe is best for us.
