As author Ryan Niemiec, VIA’s Chief Science and Education Officer, wrote in his blog recently:

Character strengths are an imperative right now in this world. They are not a luxury, a trivial thing, or “something nice”; they are tough-loaded, resilience-based, and crucial at times of adversity. And all of your strengths matter.
