+  Social Science Apologetics: Virtue-Focused People and Decision-Making

  • Description: It’s common knowledge that people tend to be better at solving other people’s problems than they are at addressing their own. But a new study finds that people who think, not in terms of what they personally feel or think they should do about their problems, but in terms of what attempting to live up to a particular set of virtues would have them do in response to a problem, are just as good at solving their own problems as they are helping others. We'll get the details with Dr. Greg Popcak.
