Prudence is about being careful with one's choices. People strong in prudence think and act in ways that are conducive to the attainment of long term goals and aspirations. They plan for the future and carefully consider how their decisions will affect outcomes. This involves the ability to regulate behaviours and emotions in the short term so they do not impact on long term goals. Prudent people do not take undue risks and will not do or say things that could be regretted later. This strength is related to careful and wise decision making.

Forgiveness is about giving people a second chance after they have done wrong. People strong in this strength prefer to move on after a transgression.
