Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology

Dr. Martin Seligman, a psychologist from the US, stated the importance of developing positive psychology when he was the chairman of the American Psychological Association in 1998. Psychology from the last century focuses on exploring mind, psychological and behavioral problems, while positive psychology focuses on exploring positive emotions, personal growth and virtues, and the ways to help people seek authentic happiness and establish positive life goals.

Character Strengths

According to positive psychology, everyone has his or her own character strengths, such as love, bravery, appreciation of beauty, perseverance, perspective and others. Although character strengths can be influenced by innate factors, acquired factors are more important. Those who use their character strengths in work, school, family, friends and community, will experience a sense of satisfaction and a meaningful life.

Positive Life

We all hope to enjoy a positive and happy life. Positive psychology postulates that there are three paths to happiness:

  1. The Pleasant life: having as many pleasures as possible, and having the skills to amplify your pleasures
  2. The Good life: fully engaging in school, work, love, friendships, and leisure, as well as making good use of your own character strengths and virtues, and establishing a munificent life.
  3. The Meaningful life: using your strengths in the service of something that is bigger than you are.
