The Positivity Project: Humility/Modesty
This week in P2, the students will be learning about the character strengths of Humility and Modesty.
Humble people have an accurate (not underestimated) sense of their abilities and achievements. They hold the capacity to acknowledge their mistakes and limitations, and
are open to advice and new ideas. They do not show off their possessions or accomplishments.
WHY IT MATTERS
Developing humility is associated with positive developmental outcomes in individuals. It allows a person to honestly reflect on their abilities and acknowledge how and where they can improve. Humility opens them up to new ideas, advice, and (consequently) abilities that pride, arrogance, or pretentiousness often block. Therefore, humility makes them desired members of a team.
