(18 Jan 2021) Character Strengths Survey
As mentioned in the Level Meeting today, I would strongly encourage all of you to take the VIA character strength survey. This classification of strengths is grounded in extensive research.
With an indication of your personal strengths, it'll be easier to answer an important question posed to all of us by Fr Adrian at the start of the year - "What gifts do you bring to SJI?".
It'll also help us to understand our classmates and CCA mates better and to work towards each of us giving our best through our signature strengths.
Do the survey and have a discussion with your classmates and your FTs!
