“Jobs” was recommended for its themes on leadership, creativity, communications and success by Forbes magazine (see tip#690).
Another film that is finding a new audience is Divergent having been featured in the Psychology Today article called “Divergent: Use the Movie to Create the Best Version of You”. It talks about the value of the film as a tool for learning more about yourself and your character strengths. The article also points to a non-validated but fun Aptitude Test on the Divergent film website you can take. I discovered I was divergent which is a good thing as you will read below!

The science fiction action film, Divergent, takes place in a future dystopian Chicago, where people are divided into five “factions” based on their personalities: Abnegation (selfless), Amity (peaceful), Candor (truthful), Erudite (intelligent) and Dauntless (brave). Beatrice “Tris” Prior (Shailene Woodley) wants to know where she belongs and through a serum test discovers she has attributes of all factors meaning she is divergent and considered a threat to society.

• Knowing yourself
• Mindset training
• Facing fears
I originally had no interest in seeing this film because it looked and sounded like a watered down version of The Hunger Games films. I’m glad I trusted my gut to later see it because despite the movie’s flaws I recognized the personal development themes that could really inspire a person to identify their personality strengths and purpose in life. And ultimately being divergent is a good thing because you’d embody the best qualities of being human: selfless, peaceful, truthful, intelligent and brave.
“I don't want to be just one thing. I can't be. I want to be brave and I want to be selfless, intelligent and honest and kind.”
