Hi all — as a reminder, we’d like to ask everyone to keep your cameras on if at all possible. Thanks!
Ava Tankala

My connection is really bad so I try to keep video off so the audio doesn’t cut out as much. Sorry about that!
Stephen Angle
36:01
No worries, Ava!

As always, if you have a question you’d like me to ask Dr. D’Andrea, just put it in the chat.

I found it interesting that my top strength was leadership, but often I shy away from leadership roles for reasons I don’t really know.
Ava Tankala
01:05:16
I noticed the questionnaire said at the beginning that each item reflects a trait that is generally thought of as positive, but there were definitely quite a few that I personally didn’t feel strongly attached to or didn’t feel like it was a flaw that I lacked.
Ben Rosenfeld

I took the optional “find your strengths” workshop at Wesleyan and the two ones that I found there, curiosity and humor, were also in my top 5 for this survey, which I found interesting.
Sebastian Kulkarni
01:07:06
I agree. I thought there were some questions that had a negative connotation to them and implied that we have some negative character traits.
Ava Tankala
01:11:43
I think I more meant that many of the lower “strengths” were things that just weren’t things I prioritized for myself, versus many of the higher things were ones that I value and thus try to actively improve.
Stephen Angle
01:12:30
Understood, Ava! There are a bunch of interesting issues entangled here, I’d say!
Stephen Angle
01:13:28
(Including, maybe, whether all these things *should* matter to one.)

Is it not possible to submit the poll now it says its full
Stephen Angle
01:21:54
(I think since she displayed the results, it may be too late to submit, sorry!)
Sebastian Kulkarni
01:22:19
Oh ok thank for for letting me know
Sebastian Kulkarni
01:22:29
thank you

I was surprised that connection to the universe was rated highly. I wasn’t quite sure myself what all that meant
Stephen Angle
01:24:02
(The student’s comment was: “humans are tribal animals, no surprise that connectedness with others was very high)
Ava Tankala
01:24:37
I wonder if the plans for the future one was low because we’re living in a time with a very uncertain future (COVID, elections coming up, lots of environmental and social change, etc.)
Sebastian Kulkarni
01:24:44
I didn’t really understand what was meant by beauty through art.
Stephen Angle
01:27:34
@Sebastien, good question — I wasn’t entirely sure either. But I guess either appreciating art (going to museums…) or making art.
Sebastian Kulkarni
01:28:15
Yes thats what I thought originally it just seemed a little odd to me
Ben Rosenfeld
01:28:52
I think appreciation of art can be a strength if experiencing art brings you joy
Samuel Slye
01:36:16
I took it as: when you’re able to find beauty in art then you’re able to connect with it. That connection can provide comfort to someone feeling the same way or even be an escape for some people. Like if someone is feeling sad but they are struck by the beauty of a painting or movie or song then it might help them feel better.
Tereza Pesmazoglou
01:36:47
Yes I agree
Stephen Angle
01:37:52
All done! Enjoy dialogue on Friday. Confucianism on Monday :-)
