Poor Character Or Poor Judgement?

Seriously. How do we know?

There is a difference between the two, you know.

A poor character is a pattern of selfish behavior, of ego and arrogance and making excuses for wrongdoing. Here the person never ”owns” and feels responsible for mistakes and often defends them as being “not that bad”.

There is a difference between poor character and poor judgment. Almost every person is guilty of poor judgment. A poor judgment can happen. It is like it is! We all have our weak moments when we succumb to baser impulses.

As a leader, it is important to understand the difference between character and judgment.

Questions you can ask to determine between character and judgment:

  1. When you made a poor decision, does it reflect a pattern or an isolated incident?
  2. Do you feel authentic remorse, regret, and repentance for what you did?
  3. Do you try to explain or defend your wrong choices or mistakes?
  4. Do you feel any commitment to future change?


Don’t punish yourself for a poor judgment!

We are human beings.

We can err.
