    Character Strengths in the Life Domains of Work, Education, Leisure, and Relationships and Their Associations With Flourishing.Lisa Wagner, Lisa Pindeus & Willibald Ruch - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    A growing body of research demonstrates the relevance of character strengths for flourishing in general, but also for important outcomes across different life domains. Studies have also shown that there are differences in the extent to which character strengths are applied, that is, perceived as relevant and shown in behavior in a given context, between work and private life, but they have not considered other life domains. This study aims to close this gap by examining the life domains of work, (...)

  10. Measuring What Counts in Life: The Development and Initial Validation of the Fulfilled Life Scale.Doris Baumann & Willibald Ruch - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    In a recent work, we introduced a theoretical model for fulfillment in life that covers cognitive and affective components and distinguishes different time frames. The present study evaluates this model and describes the construction of the Fulfilled Life Scale to assess fulfillment regarding the whole lived life retrospectively. We investigated the scale in two samples. The model of the cognitive component combines three sources of fulfillment with three criteria, yielding nine facets. Employing hierarchical factor analysis, we inspected all solutions between (...)

    The Relationships of Team Role- and Character Strengths-Balance With Individual and Team-Level Satisfaction and Performance.Fabian Gander, Ines Gaitzsch & Willibald Ruch - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    Teamwork has been argued to play an increasingly important role in numerous jobs, and several studies focused on the effects of team composition for work-related outcomes. Recent research has also identified individuals’ character strengths and positive team roles as conducive to work-related outcomes. However, there is a scarcity of research on the role of character strengths or positive team roles on the level of teams. In the present study, we extend theoretical assumptions of team role theories to the study of (...)

    Co-occurrence Patterns of Character Strengths and Measured Core Virtues in German-Speaking Adults.Willibald Ruch, Sonja Heintz & Lisa Wagner - 2020 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    The VIA Classification on character strengths and virtues suggests 24 character strengths clustered into six core virtues. Three recent studies employed different methods for testing the assignment of character strengths to virtues, and generally supported the VIA classification. However, the co-occurrence of character strengths and virtues within individuals has not been examined yet. Another untested assumption is that an individual’s composition of character strengths is related to being considered of “good character.” Thus, the present study addresses three research questions: How (...)

    What constitutes a fulfilled life? A mixed methods study on lay perspectives across the lifespan.Doris Baumann & Willibald Ruch - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Recently, we initiated a new research line on fulfillment in life by developing a conceptual framework and a self-report measure. To enhance conceptual clarity and complement theoretical considerations and empirical findings, we investigated lay conceptions of a fulfilled life in German-speaking participants at different life stages. First, we selected a qualitative approach using an open-ended question asking participants to describe a fulfilled life. Second, for a more comprehensive understanding, quantitative data were collected about the relevance of sources in providing fulfillment (...)
