I recently completed a free online test by the VIA Institute on Character to help you find your unique strengths. It's a neat tool for these curious minds who forever want to know who they really are, find their purpose, and live life to the fullest.
Some of the categories are creativity, leadership, or love of learning, but it goes beyond professional talents and into personal strengths like humor, humility and love. It's a confidence booster for everyone who has ever doubted who they are.
My top strength came out to be spirituality, which contains the description "you have a deep sense of purpose in your life." That rings true, and I love supporting others in finding their own purpose.
