The VIA Survey is a psychometrically validated personality test that measures an individual’s character strengths. Character strengths are viewed as our positive personality in that they are our core capacities for thinking, feeling, and behaving in ways that can bring benefit to us and others.

Character Strengths & Virtues: A Handbook and Classification
The Character Strengths and Virtues is regarded as the backbone of the science of positive psychology and remains one of the most substantive efforts generated by the field of Character. In turn, it draws interest from a wide range of professions and disciplines – education, management, consulting, psychology, coaching, and many others.
VIA collaborates with, and in some cases provides funding to, researchers across the globe to provide free access to the VIA Survey and raw data for use in research studies. Our on-going relationships with scientists and thinkers at the forefront of character science ensure that we remain at the epicenter of the global movement to advance the science and practice of character strengths.
