The VIA Character Strengths Survey – gives you some clues of who you are at your core. Your character strengths are the personality characteristics that help you feel engaged, authentic and unique in your life.

The VIA Character Strengths Survey is a simple survey that takes a few minutes to complete. Once completed, the survey provides you with information to help you understand your constellation of the 24 character strengths that fall under six broad virtue categories: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence.

How was the VIA Character Strengths Survey Created?

The VIA Character Strengths Survey was created under the direction of Dr. Martin Seligman, the “father of Positive Psychology” and author of Authentic Happiness and Flourish, and Dr. Christopher Peterson, distinguished scientist at the University of Michigan and author of A Primer in Positive Psychology. The VIA Character Strengths Self-Assessment Survey is regarded as a central tool of positive psychology and has been used in hundreds of research studies.

 

What are Your Character Strengths?

I have just re-done my strengths (the last time I did them was 10 years ago) and have shared the top 5 below (which can be referred to as your signature strengths).

Would you like to share yours? If so, post them in the comments below.

Either way, I hope when you discover your character strengths and they help you live a wholehearted life.

My Top 5 Signature Strengths (today 24/1/15) are –

  1. Fairness – treating all people fairly is one of your abiding principles. You do not let your personal feelings bias your decisions about other people. You give everyone a chance.
  2. Gratitude – you are aware of the good things that happen to you, and you never take them for granted. Your friends and family members know that you are a grateful person because you always take the time to express your thanks.
  3. Honesty – you are an honest person, not only by speaking the truth but by living your life in a genuine and authentic way. You are down to earth and without pretense; you are a “real” person.
  4. Perspective – although you may not think of yourself as wise, your friends hold this view of you. They value your perspective on matters and turn to you for advice. You have a way of looking at the world that makes sense to others and to yourself.
  5. Leadership – encouraging a group of which one is a member to get things done and at the same time maintain good relations within the group; organising group activities and seeing that they happen.

Personally, I check-in with my strengths each year as part of the End-of-Year Ritual 🙂 Why? Because they change!

As of today (17/11/19), these are my top 5 strengths –

  1. Appreciation of Beauty & Excellence – noticing and appreciating beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in various domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.
  2. Gratitude – you are aware of the good things that happen to you, and you never take them for granted. Your friends and family members know that you are a grateful person because you always take the time to express your thanks.
  3. Honesty – you are an honest person, not only by speaking the truth but by living your life in a genuine and authentic way. You are down to earth and without pretense; you are a “real” person.
  4. Humility – letting one’s accomplishments speak for themselves; not regarding oneself as more special than one is.
  5. Love of learning – mastering new skills, topics, and bodies of knowledge, whether on one’s own or formally; related to the strength of curiosity but goes beyond it to describe the tendency to add systematically to what one knows.
