Inspiring Movies or Television Series that portray display of character strengths also aid to enhancement of Positive emotions. In this particular video, a clip from the episode titled, “In Excelsis Deo” from the hit political show, “The West Wing”, the character Toby Zieglar (White House Director of Communication), played by the actor Richard Schiff displays multiple character Strengths.
Toby, in this video organizes funeral for a homeless veteran. I think that he displayed the following Character Strengths;
- Social Intelligence
I will explain the bit on fairness. Toby was fair as he thought that proper justice was not given to a war veteran and he could at least contribute by organizing a state funeral. He shows Bravery in taking an independent decision and he stands by it, even in front of the President. Toby was organizing all this when the entire US was in Christmas mode. If you can get access to watch the entire episode, it is worth it!
