The Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test is a test used by Rotarians world-wide as a moral code for personal and business relationships. The test can be applied to almost any aspect of life. The test was scripted by Herbert J. Taylor an American from Chicago as he set out to save a distribution company from bankruptcy. It was later adopted by Rotary International.

Is it the TRUTH?

There is a timelessness in truth that is unchangeable. Truth cannot exist without justice.

This question eliminates the dog-eat-dog mentality and substitutes the idea of constructive and creative competition.
