Well I use a password that 6 letters long and has letters and alphabet without spelling a word and My university password analysis considers it weak so I am out of the picture

Though it was a fascinating read though

Generally 6 letters is considered to be a little weak. The main reason from what I understand is that you have only a couple million variables for 6 letters where if you take it to 7 or 8 letters those variables go double that making it safer.

Did I miss a link somewhere to tell me that my password is strong or weak or is there just not such a thing?

Well generally when you create a password with some sites, they can tell you if the password is weak or not. Take Steam's website. You can type a password into their and they will tell if it is strong or weak.
