Frequently Asked Questions

What information is shared with researchers?

The VIA Institute will provide researchers with an Excel spreadsheet that includes their research participant's name, email address, gender, date of birth, and raw scores for all 24 of the VIA character strengths. Optional demographic information, such as participant zip code, country, education level, and occupation might also be included if the participant chooses to complete these fields. Research participants must agree to have their results and information shared with the researcher.
