Tiffany Shlain and The Science of Character

The Science of Character

"So what determines your character? You do. And all the people around you... And of course some genetics, too."

Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain directed this new eight minute film on the science of character, and it's pretty awesome. We just learned that you can actually purposefully shape your own character. How cool is that?

If you're inspired to develop specific character strengths after watching, you can check out the curated list of films, books, apps and games that are organized by the 24 character strengths on the "Periodic Table of Character Strengths" on the Moxie Institute's website.
