Get Into Character

The Good In You

Character test

Character strengths are the psychological ingredients for displaying human goodness and they serve as pathways for developing a life of greater virtue. While personality is the summary of our entire psychological makeup, character strengths are the positive components— what's best in you.  The 24 VIA Character Strengths are universal across all aspects of life: work, school, family, friends, and community. The 24 character strengths fall under six broad virtues (wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence) and encompass our capacities for helping ourselves and others. Whereas most personality assessments focus on negative and neutral traits, the VIA Character Survey focuses on what is best in you and is at the center of the science of well-being. Completing the free VIA Survey will result in your Character Strengths Profile, detailing a strengths palette of the real “you.”

The VIA Me Pathways Report and VIA Me! Youth Report offers your profile of  24 character strengths in three classifications: Signature Strengths, strongest and most natural; Middle Strengths, situational; and Lesser Strengths, least naturally occurring but still fundamental. We all have all 24 strengths but how they are arranged hierarchically makes you "you."  This breakdown is used in offering tips, practices, resources and overall guidance on how to work these strengths to your advantage day-to-day. 

The VIA Pro Report digs in even deeper by focusing exclusively on the power of your Signature Strengths—your "sweet spot" for personal growth. Since these are the strengths that make you feel the most authentic, happy, and energized, it is crucial to understand the different dynamics of applying these core strengths in your life.
