Intellectual Curiosity is a broad statement that refers to any type of learning! Not just academics! You could be intellectually curious about video games, cooking, etc.
Ariel Bridges
29:33
Your activities that you participate in will likely display your top traits! Activities could be a job, sports, clubs, hobbies, and more!
Ariel Bridges
30:56
You don’t have to be the president or officer for one of your activities for it to be meaningful and/or show you displaying your trait!
Ariel Bridges
33:13
Hi everyone! I know we’re running a bit over time for the webinar. If you have to leave, that’s okay! We’ll be sending out the full recording
KJ McDermott
35:13
are you trying to cover multiple traits in an essay or are you trying to find a place to show that you have all 5?
Ariel Bridges
35:48
Brad is answering this question now! Ideally, you will determine which two of these traits you identify with the most and focus on these
KJ McDermott
36:01
what if I really don't have all 5 traits - only 3 or 4 of the 5?
Ariel Bridges
36:11
You only need 1-2 traits!
