According to Martin Seligman, citing a study which had examined 3,000 years and over 200 volumes of philosophical, cultural and religious materials, there are six virtues :
- Wisdom and Knowledge
- Love and Humanity
- Spirituality and Transcendence
and although the specific details of each may vary across those materials and cultures, the virtues themselves are quite common.
Which, for me personally, gives rise to the question, “okay, so how am I measuring up…?”
