Character is Higher Than Intellect

Character is higher than intellect and requires regular and consistent teaching of those principles that build strong value structures in our young. Many parents, educators, and citizens have a deepening concern about the eroding value structures of the American family and society.  The resultant weak decision-making skills of our young people, even more mature people, are disturbing.  Every day we are faced with numerous decisions; some are trivial while others have life-shaping rewards or consequences.  Each decision we make is based on our value structures and contributes to the quality of life experienced by the individual and thus by society. Character is Higher Than Intellect helps your children learn character skills and value structures that will guide them throughout their lives.

Strong leaders possessing integrity and unyielding moral fiber do not just happen.  In their youth they must be taught values-based analytical thinking skills and human performance skills so that they build frameworks of thinking patterns and behavior patterns upon which to base appropriate decisions.

What values make up a strong values structure? There are five core or root values.  All other values fit within or tie back to those core values.  The five core values form a hierarchy, have an interrelationship with one another and can be taught. Each volume of curriculum has a teaching methodology that causes long-term learning to occur, which indeed builds a strong values structure within those being taught upon which to base responsible decisions.

The five core or universal values, of which all other values are a subset, are:

  • Level one: Self-Discipline – “I accept good principles and govern myself.”
  • Level Two: Responsible Behavior  – “I build self-esteem through responsible behavior.”
  • Level Three: Honesty to Self – “I first must be honest or true to myself.”
  • Level Four: Honesty to Others – “Then I will be honest or true to others.”
  • Level Five:Reverence for Life and the Creator of Life – “I have a deep love for human, plant, and animal life and the Creator of Life.”
