Challenging the conventional belief that people are stuck with the character attributes they are born with, The Science of Character reveals how it is possible for anyone to build up their core character strengths and use them to achieve greater personal, academic, and professional success and happiness.
The scientific research behind this film confirms the positive power of perception. It shows that if we focus on the strengths we have, along with developing specific strengths we may not have; it has a lasting effect on our happiness and sense of well-being.
Science, character strengths, and you!
It is my pleasure to invite you to enjoy a wonderful video presentation by my friend and colleague, award-winning filmmaker Tiffany Shlain. Tiffany’s new video is called The Science of Character and I know you are going to love it.
This powerful 8 minute film explores the neuroscience and social science behind character development and our ability to shape who we are. In other words, this film explores a positive, proactive way to start recreating your reality.
