VIA Character Strengths Analysis

The VIA PRO - Learn What’s Best About You

Knowing our personal character strengths –– what’s best about us as human beings –- is powerful knowledge. It lets us understand and nurture what’s right with us versus our faults. This idea is the essence of positive psychology.

Our signature (top) strengths are unique to each of us and powerfully affect our decisions, preferences and actions in life. Know it or not, we all live by our signature strengths. Intentionally expressing signature strengths in our close relationships, work, and communities can be deeply satisfying. It is: “living out loud."

The VIA PRO Character Strengths Report was developed to scientifically measure a person’s character strengths. It provides a closer look at a person's character strengths through the use of 5 Graphs, description of key research around certain character strengths, ways to explore strengths, a description of the overuse and underuse of highest strengths, and a description of the most recent interventions for building each of the 24 strengths of character.

The VIA PRO emerged from a panel of leading experts in the world of strengths; their comments, suggestions, and judgments have been invaluable.
