2011 Weter Lecture – A Two-talent Servant in a Five-talent World: Christian vs. Secular Views of Human Potential


Paul Yost, Associate Professor of Industrial/Organizational Psychology and Director of Applied Learning and Development, discusses emerging research in psychology suggesting that a few stable personality characteristics are surprisingly good predictors of job performance, life satisfaction, and longevity – seeming to indicate that people’s success, job satisfaction, life satisfaction, and even life-long wellbeing might be predetermined.  He explores how a Christian worldview offers a way to acknowledge these findings but in a way that reframes and transcends them. April 18, 2011. [Audio] [Video]
