It gives them the feeling that no matter what happens, they are valued and respected (Rogers & Dymond, 1954). The connections between the different conceptualizations of self-esteem, however, remain unclear. The research presented here attempts to synthesize the views on self-esteem by focusing on the vital role that self-esteem plays in the process of self-verification within groups.

Meanings in an identity reflect an individual’s conception of himself or herself as an occupant of that particular position or “self-in-role” (Stryker 1980).
These are questions that have been pursued through the ages and in this essay, I will be investigating the theory behind the identification of my own signature strengths and corresponding virtues as proposed by Seligman and Peterson (2004), touching on the ideas behind the theory of positive psychology (Peterson, 2006). I will examine how these strengths affect my life, briefly contemplate weakness and the ‘shadow’ sides of my attributes, as first described by C.G Jung (1953) and finally, investigate how my strengths might be developed. Martin Seligman (1998 as cited in Compton & Hoffman, 2013) while president of the American Psychological Association (AMA) reminded psychologists of the following: “Psychology is not just the study of weakness and damage; it is also the study of strength and virtue. Treatment is not just fixing what is broken; it is nurturing what is best within us.” (p. 1). Seligman conceived the term Positive Psychology (Lopez, Teramoto Pedrotti, & Snyder, 2015), a concept with ideas that goes beyond the balance and principle ascribed by Aristotle; aiming to develop individual strength and subscribing to the idea of living a good life, focusing on what is already working with an individual and what is

Wellbeing refers to how people evaluate their lives. These evaluations may be in the form of cognitions or in the form of affect. The cognitive part is an information based appraisal of one’s life that is when a person gives conscious evaluative judgments about one’s satisfaction with life as a whole. Most people evaluate their life as either good or bad, so they are normally able to offer judgments. People invariably experience moods and emotions which have a positive effect or a negative effect.
