I’m not sure who decided this but March 20th is “Character Day” and it’s also the day that filmmaker Tiffany Shlain released a superb 8 minute video, “The Science of Character.”
In addition to making the film available, Shlain’s website Let it Ripple, is encouraging people to:
- Join a global Q&A through Google Hangout with Dr. Angela Duckworth (founder of The Character Lab), Dr. Neal Mayerson (Chairman of the VIA Institute on Character), Dr. Michael Rich (Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School, and more.
- Use our Discussion Guides for all ages
- Explore each of the character strengths: If you’re interested in developing any of the particular character strengths, explore curated lists of films, books, websites, games, and apps specific to each strength.
- Learn more about the fascinating research behind character development.
