Top 10 Amazing (Recent) Findings on Character Strengths



As a tribute to the upcoming Character Day which promotes the science of character strengths around the world, I’m sharing 10 recent research studies on VIA Character Strengths. Since the science of character strengths has exploded in the last decade and a half, we have gained plenty of new knowledge about these core positive qualities in human beings.

While it’s a challenge to limit this to 10, I chose only studies from the last two years. Those who are scientifically-minded will notice that these 10 studies all include a different lead scientist which implicitly tells us that The Science of Character is spreading widely around the world.
