CAMPOS, Lara Priscila de; AMBIEL, Rodolfo Augusto Matteo  and  MARTINS, Gustavo Henrique. Character strengths scale: evidence of validity in the context of career guidance. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp. 1-27. ISSN 1983-8220.

This research aimed to find evidence of validity for the character strengths scale (CSS), correlating it with the career adapt-abilities scale (CAAS) based on the relationship with external variables, that is, between the scores of the instruments to be used, and other variables such as age, sex and employment situation. A total of 364 respondents aged between 18 and 77 years old participated in an online survey. An important contribution of this research was regarding the employment situation, suggesting that the ability to innovate and be open to new experiences are fundamental for those who wish to remain employed. The results also infer that younger people tend to think more about their professional future than older people; however, the maturity associated with a higher level of knowledge (education) promotes a higher score among the strength of character.

Keywords : Positive psychology; Strength of character; Career guidance; Career adaptability.
