Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the VIA Survey in my research?

Yes. This is one of the unique features of the VIA Institute and its VIA Surveys that measure character strengths. Anyone can study the character strengths of their research subjects or the strengths of those in their organization or school. In fact, the VIA Institute receives several requests every week from distinguished researchers, university professors, teachers, workshop leaders, and students writing their dissertation or master’s thesis. VIA offers a suite of character strength assessments that researchers can choose to use in their studies.
