The character strength of gratitude involves feeling and expressing a deep sense of thankfulness in life, and more specifically, taking the time to genuinely express thankfulness to others. This thankfulness can be for specific gifts or thoughtful acts. It could also more generally reflect recognition of what that person contributes to your life.

Two types of gratitude:

  • Benefit-triggered gratitude - the state that follows when a desired benefit is received from a benefactor.
  • Generalized gratitude - the state resulting from awareness and appreciation of what is valuable and meaningful to yourself. There are two stages of gratitude:
    • Acknowledging the goodness in your life.
    • Recognizing the source of this goodness is outside yourself.

Two tasks are designed to encourage students to express gratitude in different environments (online and physical life) to different people. It is to promote the character of “Gratitude” around campus and acknowledge the goodness in one’s life.
