  • Survey of Strengths Dr. Steve McSwain Here are my scores on the VIA Survey of Character Strengths. For how to interpret and use these scores, see the book Authentic Happiness. The ranking of the strengths reflects my overall ratings of myself on the 24 strengths in the survey and how much of each of the strengths I possess. My top five are the ones I pay attention to and find ways to use more often. MY Top # 1 Strength - Humor and playfulness - I like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to me. I try to see the light side of all situations. Which is why Im a humorist. My 2nd Strength - Hope, optimism, and future-mindedness - I expect the best in the future, and I work to achieve it. I believe that the future is something that I can control. I really cant but believing I can works well for me. Strength #3 - Curiosity and interest in the world - I am curious about everything. I am always asking questions, and I find all subjects and topics fascinating. I like exploration and discovery. Strength #4 - Fairness, equity, and justice - Treating all people fairly is one of my abiding principles. I do not let my personal feelings bias my decisions about other people. I give everyone a chance. Strength #5 - Appreciation of beauty and excellence - I notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience. This also explains why I married so beyond my deserving. HA HA
