VIA Character Strengths
Although there are several great strengths assessments that we enjoy working with at All Our Strengths, the strengths we refer to and recommend most often are the ones defined in the VIA Character Strengths Survey. The VIA (Values in Action) Character Strengths survey is a simple, evidence-based, self-assessment tool that helps individuals determine their top signature strengths out of a list of 24 character strengths that are valued in almost every culture. It is the result of decades of research by some of the world's most respected social scientists. The VIA Survey typically takes less than 15 minutes to complete and is available online for free in both an adult version that comes in 37 languages and a youth version (for ages 10 and up) that is available in 17 languages. Even children who are too young to complete the survey benefit greatly from learning to recognize these important character strengths in themselves and others. The VIA Survey is the only free, online, research-based, and scientifically-validated survey of character strengths in the world. What are your highest character strengths?
