Too much of a good thing - when virtue becomes vice

Sunday Nov 11,2018

In an invited commentary, SMU Behavioural Sciences Institute Director Professor David Chan explained how virtue can become vice when we are excessively high on a positive attribute like confidence, conscientiousness and courage, or a positive attitude towards others like trusting someone. He explained that instead of moderation, the way to prevent our strengths from becoming self-defeating weaknesses is to self-reflect and take constructive steps to do something.
