I had apparently taken the VIA strengths inventory survey in September, 2019 — probably as part of another United Front class, though I don’t specifically remember doing it. I took the survey again now and the results are slightly different than they were last time.

*shrug* Actually … come to think of it, perhaps the best idea here is to literally post my results to the forum here, because they’re curious and I’m not sure what to make of the differences at the moment, and I think it would be helpful to share this.

Notes:
1) For the 2021-05 survey, “Leadership” and “Teamwork” were only considered during the test meaning for _external_ groups (not headmates)
2) We don’t know/remember who we were when we took the first survey in 2019 and we don’t know who we are right now while taking the 2nd survey in 2021. Phhht! Right now all we know is that we feel “very cohesive” at present (we feel as if we were a singleton) so based on that we’re guessing that we might be “Just Me”, but that’s just an “educated guess”. [For those in the class: “Just Me” is someone in our head that “feels” as though we have “melded” together the fronting personalities together as if they were “Lego blocks” that were “attached”.]
