Authentic Happiness Survey

Fiber Fiend blogged about the Authentic Happiness website and I thought I would check it out.

Being on my psychiatry rotation makes me even more interested in this type of questionnaire.  I have noticed that working during this clerkship has effected my mood. It seems like a good idea to check in with my core self periodically.

Here are my results for the VIA Signature Strengths Survey

Your Top 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.

Your Second Strength

Honesty, authenticity, and genuineness
You are an honest person, not only by speaking the truth but by living your life in a genuine and authentic way. You are down to earth and without pretense; you are a “real” person.

Your Third Strength

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 only on solid evidence to make your decisions. You are able to change your mind.

Your Fourth Strength

Bravery and valor
You are a courageous person who does not shrink from threat, challenge, difficulty, or pain. You speak up for what is right even if there is opposition. You act on your convictions.

Your Fifth 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.

  1. I find it interesting, although not surprising, that we share 3 out of 5 top strengths!
