Character Strengths and Virtues

We develop our inner “superhero” from a young age. For most of us we don’t even know we have super strengths.   In the book Character Strengths and Virtues: A Handbook and Classification by Christopher Peterson and Martin E. P. Seligman they identify several character strengths that are categorized under  six core moral virtues. These are the strengths that make each of us a “superhero”.  We just need to appreciate our strengths and use them to support our actions and our contributions to society and others.  I would like to think I have some of these all figured out but as you get older you realize that you have just begun to scratch the surface of these strengths.

I thought one mind-map (one picture) of the core moral virtues and the associated character strengths would be worth sharing.    Can download a higher resolution PDF at the link  at the bottom of the page.
