VIA Character Strengths Quiz
Learn about the science behind your strengths

Now’s the time to find out about your greatest strengths! By doing so, you can harness them to manage stress and life challenges and in turn, become happier and develop more meaningful relationships with those you love most. And you can do this by understanding your character strengths – all 24 of them, each in different degrees, coming together to make up your very own character profile.

Grouped into six categories – wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance and transcendence, these strengths can be uncovered through the VIA Character Strength Quiz. After completing the quiz, you will receive a report of how your unique strengths can play a part in bettering your life, as well as the lives of those around you. A basic report is free of charge; you can also choose to buy a report with more in-depth reviews of your unique strengths with prices ranging from USD45 to USD55.

The Dosha Quiz
Discover your unique mind-body type, and use it to design your personal health & mental well-being journey.

According to Ayurveda, doshas are the energy patterns that flow around our bodies, governing our thinking and behaviour. We are born with three primary doshas – vata (qualities reflecting the elements of space and air), pitta (qualities reflecting the elements of Fire and Water) and kapha (qualities reflecting the elements of water and earth). Also known as mind-body types, these doshas express unique combinations of physical, emotional and mental qualities.

We all have a dominant dosha, a secondary one, and a least dominant one – all of which need to be balanced well. Your body’s and mind’s health are determined by how balanced your elements are and how much they move around. The better balance of air, fire and earth, the better it is for your health. But first, you need to establish our very own mind-body type with this simple quiz – the Dosha Quiz, where you answer questions such as your physical traits (e.g. body type, complexion, hair type), as well as mental traits and behaviour (e.g. sleep pattern and temperament). You will then receive a report that tells you about your unique mind-body type and tops to create a lifestyle that supports your dosha.
