Have you ever heard of a character strength?

We all have our own unique set of strengths that are an innate part of you, they exist at the very center of our being.

These strengths play an important role in our lives.  When when we use our character strengths we often feel energized, refreshed, and satisfied.

And HAPPY.

Check out Via Me, it’s a FREE online test which tests your own individual character strengths.  It’s rooted in strength based, positive psychology (aka happiness experts) and it’s such a great way to learn more about yourself.

My #1 Via Me character strength is, surprise surprise, love of learning!  I love sharing what I learn with anyone and everyone.  It makes me happy to learn and to share what I learn with those around me.

Here’s what my top character strength says:
Love of learning: You love learning new things, whether in a class or on your own. You have always loved school, reading, and museums-anywhere and everywhere there is an opportunity to learn.

That means that indulging myself in a few minutes of learning something new raises my happiness levels.  My current plan of action for love of learning is: Read Non-fiction books, articles, blogs, documentaries, podcasts, go to the library (which I do and LOVE) and explore new cities and places.VIA Character Survey
