Character Strengths & Virtues as Classical Roles
This is one of the times when I am blown away by the depth and elegance of something on the internet(hat-tip to dubhlainn)

- Renaissance man.

His document is on Googledocs. I”ve also linked to it on my positive vocabulary wiki. If you would like to contribute to that wiki, BTW, the password is “thankyou”.
Which are you?
And for the pundits:
- What do you think of the expansion of his list?
- Has he left anything out?
- What do you feel about the ancient 3 way grouping?
- I think it has overtones of McClellands three needs for achievement, power and affection?
- Does this list flesh out Bijoy Goswami’s three types: Maven, Evangelist and Relator?
- Which is linked to Malcolm Gladwell‘s Maven, Salesman and Connector?
- And of course the three themes in the Bhagavad Gita: Intellect (jnana), Action (karma) and Emotion (bhakti) – have I got that right?
Does Micheldaw’s work add value to your personal sense? And to your ability to help others?
