The *NEW* VIA Survey-120 is a revised version of the original VIA-IS which was developed by renowned psychologist, Christopher Peterson, Ph.D. as a 240 item, scientifically validated, questionnaire that provided a rank order of an adult’s 24 character strengths.


The new revised version takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and descriptive results reports are available for both individuals and professionals. The VIA Survey is offered in 19 languages. The VIA Survey is the only survey of strengths in the world that is free, online, and psychometrically valid. Please click here for psychometric information on this instrument.
