English Peterson and Seligman (2004) developed the Values-In-Action Strengths Classification in order to measure how high people score on six virtues encompassing 24 character strengths (e.g., Humanity as a virtue encompassing love, kindness, social intelligence; Knowledge encompassing creativity, curiosity, judgment, love of learning, perspective; Temperance encompassing forgiveness, self-regulation). Happiness increase is observed through some strengths-oriented interventions for adults (e.g. Gander, Proyer, Ruch, & Wyss, 2013).
