Take a blank piece of paper and quickly brainstorm all of the things which you think are important values/beliefs when dealing with other people (e.g. “tell the truth even if it hurts”; “treat people as humans not numbers”; “you’ve got to be cruel to be kind”; “people should want to do what you want them to do”). Try to fill the side.
