I have met some torah scholars who appear to be learning quite a bit, yet their character traits appear to be in the lacking.
Is torah study supposed to refine one's character? If so, how can we explain this.
(disclaimer: I don't mean to say this is widespread, just that it happens sometimes)
(source for torah study refining character: The gemara Shabbos 88a discusses whether Torah study or the observance of Torah commandments is greater. It concludes that Torah study is greater, for it leads to action. It seems here that our Sages are instructing us that instilling Jewish values in character as well as Torah observance is most effectively achieved through studying Torah.)
