Each month, Mayerson Academy explores a different character strength. July’s focus is on fairness.
According to VIA, “Fairness falls under the virtue category of Justice. Justice describes strengths that make life fair. They are broadly interpersonal and describe the best interaction between the individual and a group or community.
Fairness is a cognitive judgment capacity that involves reasoning and making judgments. It involves two types of reasoning:
- Justice reasoning which emphasizes logic and weighing principles to determine moral rights and responsibilities.
- Care reasoning which includes empathy and compassion; the ability to put yourself in somebody else’s shoes.”
