Moral Stage #6

You have scored into the "Universal Ethical Principles" stage. Not many people (out in the real world) will fall into this stage at all, for it is quite rare to be this selfless. You're right up there with Ghandi and Martin Luther King, Jr. You would break the law not only because you could, but because you envision a world where that law isn't in effect. According to Kohlberg, you don't have much, if any concern, for yourself. It's all about other people. You think that if everyone were like you, the world would be more harmonious and peaceful. Which might be true, however, try not to lose sight of your inner self. Complete loss of identity could/will occur.
