Character Strengths

VIA Survey of Character Strengths

While at TBLR I was told about a website that allows you to work out your strengths. So I decided to complete it today. Here is the website

The Survey of Character Strengths required me to answer 240 questions. And came up with five strengths for me

It was kinda weird to read about my strengths, because I would see myself as a humble person who generally doesn't like to acknowledge good parts about myself. Like I'm the type of person who has difficulty taking a compliment and I struggle to answer if someone asks me the good parts about myself.

So here is what the website said were my strengths:

Your Top Strength

Kindness and generosity
You are kind and generous to others, and you are never too busy to do a favor. You enjoy doing good deeds for others, even if you do not know them well.

Your Second Strength

Capacity to love and be loved
You value close relations with others, in particular those in which sharing and caring are reciprocated. The people to whom you feel most close are the same people who feel most close to you.

Your Third Strength

Citizenship, teamwork, and loyalty
You excel as a member of a group. You are a loyal and dedicated teammate, you always do your share, and you work hard for the success of your group.

Your Fourth Strength

You excel at the tasks of leadership: encouraging a group to get things done and preserving harmony within the group by making everyone feel included. You do a good job organizing activities and seeing that they happen.

Your Fifth Strength

Humor and playfulness
You like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to you. You try to see the light side of all situations.

Now I need to try to work out how I can use these strengths to help achieve goals...
