Usually, though, I find a mixed approach works. I have a lot of end goals that fall under virtue ethics. Favouring children, protecting animals, serving the public, keeping my promises. It gets counter-productive from a consequentialistic vantage point. The methods I employ to accomplish these things, however, can be horrendously machiavellian, so I'm not sure what you would call that.
Both Consequentialism and Virtue for me.
