Happy My Friday.

I posted something on this Drive Time Post from a few days ago, and Jen Silva had some awesome feedback! Here is the information that she has shared with us. Thanks, Jen!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your post reminds me so much of this particular field in psychology called Positive Psych..it’s basically grounded in understanding what it means to live a meaningful life and focuses on helping people thrive by cultivating their strengths. There’s this pretty amazing website too where you can participate in these assessments that measure everything from character strengths to your current state of “happiness.” Since they’re still doing tons of research on this, the tests are free right now. Anyhow, I just think it’s cool. See ya later!

You can create an account and test away! An online record is kept, so you could take the tests again later and compare over time.

    Very interesting tests and results. I find it interesting what they consider happy and fulfilling or meaningful.

    • I agree, Will. I don’t really know to take of the “scores” yet, but in messing around a little bit, I find they at least provide a little bit of insight as to how you can interpret the same scenarios different ways.

      From there I just think, “Could I have been more positive with how I approached x scenario.”

      Great link, though. Thanks, Jen!
