Hello,

I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place, this website is quite confusing! I was recommended this course by a friend who is finding it to be very helpful, but I am struggling somewhat on the offset and it's a little bit upsetting.

I'm in Week 1, and I'm not sure how to interpret the survey results which judge your character. The fourmost highest results I received were- Honesty, Forgiveness, Teamwork and Fairness. Other than honesty, I don't believe I hold these characteristics, and I am particularly known to be less-than-good at teamwork amongst my friends.
From what my friend has told me so far, these results don't change, and I feel like I'm going to be working toward something which I don't really care about, which is very sad when I want to learn how to be happy. She's only three weeks in I think, so perhaps it does change, but I'd like to know if I'm getting upset for no reason or if I can just ignore this aspect of the course?

If I've put this post in the wrong place, could a moderator please redirect it? I would appreciate it, thank you.
