Next, select the letter “M” and click on the link for Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print. Enter the keyword personality and press search to see reviews of commercially available psychological tests, including scores, comments, summary, pricing, and publisher information.
This will provide you with a total of six tests. For each test, create and complete a chart that mirrors the following:

After you have completed your chart, complete one of the online assessments you selected or take the VIA Survey. The VIA Classification of Character Strengths is comprised of 24 character strengths that fall under six broad virtue categories: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence .
