Abstract

This study examined the relationship between ethical beliefs and tolerance of ambiguity. Two dimensions of ethical belief were examined: ethical relativism and idealism. Findings reported here are based on a questionnaire survey of 145 exporting and importing managers of Turkey. The results show a positive correlation between ethical relativism and tolerance of ambiguity, and a negative correlation between idealism and tolerance of ambiguity.
