From Matticus, Character Strengths

Matticus had a post about this interesting survey he found on Psyblog. I decided to take a few moments and see how I measured up.

So what did the twisted bits say about Honorshammer?

Your Top Character Strength : Fairness, equity, and justice

Treating all people fairly is one of your abiding principles.
You do not let your personal feelings bias your decisions about other people. You give everyone a chance.

Your Second Character 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 Character Strength : Spirituality, sense of purpose, and faith

You have strong and coherent beliefs about the higher purpose and meaning of the universe. You know where you fit in the larger scheme. Your beliefs shape your actions and are a source of comfort to you.

Your Fourth Character 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 Fifth Character Strength : Curiosity and interest in the world

You are curious about everything. You are always asking questions, and you find all subjects and topics fascinating. You like exploration and discovery.


I'd say it's fairly accurate. I guess my fifth character strength (curiosity) showed itself off in taking the survey to begin with.

I would have hoped that Spirituality was listed closer to #1, but that's about it.

It was interesting that some questions I knew the answer to almost immediately and without thinking, but others took a moment of reflection.
