    I wonder if anyone else periodically either mentally lists morals you'd like to adhere to and uphold or actually write them down? And if so what are they usually?

    I seem to function much better at most things when I keep in mind some formula that I adapt to any given situation I find myself in. For example If I was in the presence of a war veteran I'd adopt 2 principles that I would like to see myself keeping: respect to those deserving and skill, or rather the ability and opportunity to soak up knowledge.

    I have this hypothetical seven pronged list that I try to pluck one or two of to apply in a situation I'm not all that comfortable with.

    Anyway, maybe this is typical of a lot of us, maybe not, anyone else do things like that?

    Kinda.

    Every now and then I'll write down what it is that I am passionate about and what is most important to me. Then, I try to decipher patterns in my life that correlate. I basically write these things down to understand why the things that are important to me are important to me.

    I don't write moral guidelines. I don't write rules down and then follow them. I have to experience things in order to understand them and believe they are true or right.

    I feel my way through life. This INFP description does a good enough job of trying to explain where my morals come from:
