VIA Character Quiz
Have my parents influenced my character strengths somehow? How can I use my strengths to create the kind of society I wish to live in?
Yes they have. Through their upbringing i became someone who appreciates people for their hard work, i begin learning to be self-reliant disliking the need to depend a whole lot on someone. Receiving the care and concern from my parents made me care for my friends when in need.
Helping others has also been another one of my strengths, whenever i see an elderly cleaner having the need to reach down to pick up the litter i would usually help them pick it up instead since they are already old and having to bend down would hurt their backs which pains me to watch. Considering this fact, there are still people that would not care about these elderly and just leave their litter for them to pick it up instead of doing it themselves.
What adjustments can I make in my daily life to be a better local, regional or global citizen?
As a teenager for me its the little things that counts to become a better local, regional or global citizen. Being a better local could also start from doing small things such as not littering in public places, picking up your dog litter. Being a better local could vary differently from person to person. The rich could donate whereas others could host or organize events that allow these less fortunate or disabled to visit places of interest in Singapore.
For me i would most likely partake by doing service learning by visiting old folk homes or orphanages to interact with the less fortunate and disabled. As a student we should all practice returning back our food trays, leaving classrooms at the clean state it already was. Giving our fullest participation in group activities and contributing to class discussions.
As a regional or global citizen we should just continue being the same local we were when in our country.
Overall, being a better local, regional or global citizen will benefit you in the long run as these values would already be embed into us already.
