Article of the Week
For a Modest Personality Trait, 'Intellectual Humility' Packs a Punch!
Researchers at Duke University's department of psychology and neuroscience found that higher levels of the trait 'intellectual humility' - defined as an awareness that one's beliefs may be wrong - is associated with better decision-making in health, politics and other domains. Their studies showed that intellectually humble participants were less likely to judge another's character based on his or her views, and were more likely to distinguish strong, fact-based arguments from weak ones.
