Frequently Asked Questions

Is it necessary for me to work with a professional (coach, therapist, etc.) to get the most out of this survey?

It is not necessary to work with a professional to benefit from taking the VIA Survey.   Many people have gained important insights from learning about their VIA strengths on their own.  However, reviewing the VIA Survey in the context of a helping professional can be invaluable to self-understanding. Many people find it useful to purchase a report for themselves or their client, such as the VIA Pro report or the VIA Me Pathways report, for more detailed views of their strengths and/or to work with a trained professional.  It is an individual choice.
