Character strengths are the positive aspects of an individual's personality and mental capacity. This includes elements of behavior, intelligence and worldview that can be considered virtuous or useful. The following are common examples of character strengths.
NotesIn many cases, character strengths are opposites. For example, both a talkative and reserved character could be viewed as strengths. The delineation between strengths and weakness tend to be a judgement call that differs by worldview. A character strength taken too far can become a weakness. For example, a tendency to be overly logical in situations that require empathy. Likewise, a character weakness is often considered charming in an individual who is otherwise strong.
