VIA Survey of Character Strengths

I was reading an acquaintance's blog where she talks about this survey and recommended me to take the survey to know what my strengths. I decided to give it a chance since I'm always curious to find out my take on the world and how I see people around me and how I see myself.

The questions were super awkward as I didn't have much to talk about. I had some difficulties answering some questions since I didn't really think about much and it changes according to the situations so it was quite difficult for me to answer properly.

So, after I took this more than 200 questions, these are my results.

- 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. 

It seems that I have been really keen on learning. It doesn't necessarily mean I like studying my modules in university. Currently, my mindset is that I want to learn everything that I can from environmental change to how to play chess. I don't really have motives when I want to learn like I want to learn programming because I want to work as a programmer. For me, I just want to learn stuff where I can learn about myself more and I want to learn what I enjoy doing. So far, I really enjoy what I'm doing but I got bored so easily so I want to know myself more.

- 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. 

This one gave me a surprise. I think I was practicing justice in my unconsciousness. Whenever I had to write reports about ethical reasons in the workplace, I always tend to write fairly with all the evidence that I can find to feel equal. So, I think I had thought about it without me knowing.

- Zest, enthusiasm and energy
Regardless of what you do, you approach it with excitement and energy. You never do anything halfway or halfheartedly. For you, life is an adventure.

To be honest, I was really surprised about this as my strength. For me, it was really difficult to do some things with enthusiasm. I tend to do projects with enthusiasm at first then I tend to fall out of the energy. So, seeing this surprises me.

- 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.

As I mentioned above, I like reading and learning new things. Whether it might be learning about new camera trick or reading about how animals were being harmed in the process of making cosmetics. I'm not really a museum kind of gal though. I tend to read more to learn and find new ideas by browsing through the internet.

- Judgment, critical thinking, and open-mindedness 
Thinking things through and examining them from all sides are important aspects of who you are. You do not jump to conclusions, and you rely on solid evidence to make your decisions. You are able to change your mind. 

I have always known for being open-minded so I was not surprised when I saw this point as my strength. The bad thing about this is, I always tend to find evidence to make judgment so I did not really care about other people's feelings and emotions. Because of this, I was hated or some of the relationships fell out because of this factor.

So, this is mine. Go do yours HERE!
