Signature Strengths

Happy Friday all! I just realized that today is Friday the 13th. How about that?

Anyway, I'm feeling a bit lazy today, so we'll just be stealing something that someone else already did on their blog improving our knowledge of ourselves by doing an online quiz. Adventures of the Reluctant Housewife recommended the signature strengths test over at Authentic Happiness, so I thought I'd try it out. (I took the shorter 24 question version rather than the full version). Turns out that my top signature strengths are:

1. Humor and playfulness- Humor and playfulness - You like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to you. You try to see the light side of all situations.

2. Love of Learning - 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.

3. Appreciation of beauty and excellence (awe, wonder, elevation)- Appreciation of beauty and excellence - You notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.

4. Open Mindedness 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.

5. Prudence Caution, prudence, and discretion - You are a careful person, and your choices are consistently prudent ones. You do not say or do things that you might later regret.

You know what? That makes me sound pretty awesome, doesn't it? I like this test! What do you think internets? Take the test and let me know your strengths. (Note: you will have to register, but it's nothing major).
