The Positivity Institute Character Strength Card set is comprised of 24 character strengths that fall under six broad virtue categories: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence.
In the early 2000s, scientists began to study character. A 3-year project in the USA involving 55 distinguished scientists devoted to studying character traits throughout history was launched. This resulted in the VIA Classification of character strengths and virtues (Peterson & Seligman, 2004), a classification of positive traits in human beings.
The VIA Classification of Character Strengths is comprised of 24 character strengths that fall under six broad virtue categories: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence. Character strengths are morally and universally valued, encompass our capacities for helping ourselves and others and produce positive effects when we express them. Knowing your constellation of character strengths is the first step towards living a happier, more authentic life.
The VIA classification and survey is used extensively in schools, workplaces and in therapy/coaching. To learn more or take the free Character Strength Survey go to www.viacharacter.org
