Deliberative

Shared Theme Description

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?

It’s very likely that you may adopt a businesslike style when you are asked to investigate how something functions. Sometimes you take apart whatever you are working on to grasp how all the pieces, parts, or steps work together to produce the desired effect. By nature, you may be described as an industrious and no-nonsense person. When you have a goal, you try to reach it. When you have a problem to solve, you first try to break it into parts. When you have a major decision to make, you try to study the facts from a variety of angles. Because of your strengths, you are highly selective about how much you reveal to anyone about your history, future intentions, or current affairs. Consistently you refrain from intruding on people’s privacy. Why? You realize this puts you in the position of being asked and expected to answer very personal questions. Typically you let others begin conversations. This is not your forte — that is, strong point. Perhaps you are content just to listen and observe. You probably prefer to keep your thoughts to yourself. Instinctively, you sometimes withhold recognition until you have sufficient proof the recipient has earned it. Perhaps people appreciate your compliments because you give so few of them. Chances are good that you may be a no-nonsense person. This partially explains why you spend some of your time thinking about things you could or should review, revise, repair, reorganize, or do better.

 

Command

Shared Theme Description

People who are especially talented in the Command theme have presence. They can take control of a situation and make decisions.

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?

Instinctively, you contribute many innovative ideas to the group during brainstorming sessions. You tend to be highly imaginative when proposals are fully heard and any criticism is reserved for a later time. By nature, you trust yourself to decide when and when not to use intricate, sophisticated, or complicated words. You really enjoy inserting academic or professional terminology into your conversations, debates, and correspondence. You routinely reinforce your knowledge and build your confidence by using your extensive vocabulary. Difficult-to-understand words typically give you an advantage that many people lack. It’s very likely that you naturally are aware of the way things really are. You emphasize facts and point others in the direction of truth. You wake up those who are deluded — that is, easily misled, deceived, or tricked. Your honest, direct, and plainspoken approach cuts through individuals’ delusions so they see things clearly. Your matter-of-fact style helps people identify common ground. In the process, consensus — that is, complete agreement — becomes possible. Driven by your talents, you enjoy being well-read. Not surprisingly, you can introduce more questions, suggestions, solutions, or innovative ideas into group conversations than most participants can. Chances are good that you are primarily concerned with facts and reality. Usually you reject whatever is impractical or exists only in someone’s imagination. Not surprisingly, you are determined to become proficient in the language of your chosen profession, area of study, or field of interest. You frequently introduce these terms in your speech or writing.

 

Significance

Shared Theme Description

People who are especially talented in the Significance theme want to be very important in the eyes of others. They are independent and want to be recognized.

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?

Driven by your talents, you may easily approve of people who are quite unusual or different from the majority of people. They, like you, might be driven to distinguish themselves from the crowd. Perhaps you want specific individuals to notice your work ethic and reward your productivity. This partially explains why you avoid teaming with people who may be lazy or unmotivated. Instinctively, you prefer the company of people who carefully listen to what you have to say. Your sound reasoning compels them to pay very close attention to your ideas, explanations, plans, or answers. By nature, you want your work to be seamlessly interwoven into the fabric of your personal life. You insist that no line be drawn to separate the two. You gravitate to roles where you are a person of importance. You want to perform noteworthy deeds in many areas of your life. Chances are good that you sometimes yearn to step into roles where you can influence people to follow you. Certain individuals may allow you to take charge. Why? Perhaps they remember times when you set them up for success. Because of your strengths, you might prefer to partner with people who exhibit a sound work ethic. Perhaps you sense they are apt to accept the upgrades or changes you propose. To some extent, you are drawn to individuals who hold you in high regard because of your ability to make improvements.

 

Ideation

Shared Theme Description

People who are especially talented in the Ideation theme are fascinated by ideas. They are able to find connections between seemingly disparate phenomena.

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?

Chances are good that you are sometimes the team member who generates innovative ideas for programs, processes, enterprises, or assignments. Because of your strengths, you might be the group member who creates fresh approaches for dealing with various activities. Perhaps you are inspired to invent new methods for performing tasks, reaching goals, operating processes, distributing goods, or increasing production. Sometimes you have suggested original thoughts for collecting materials, handling complaints, organizing events, raising funds, or completing assignments. It’s very likely that you may logically think through how your team can approach its projects. Perhaps you are the person who steps back to figure out how particular things work. Sometimes you consider why certain mechanisms, processes, programs, or rules failed in the past. Maybe you rely on facts to decide how many people need to be deployed, how much time they require to complete each phase of the endeavor, or what tools they need to succeed. By nature, you might search for new and fresh ways to make upgrades or enhancements. When you suspect there is a better way to do something, you might make certain revisions or test specific innovations. Instinctively, you might favor conversations where information, facts, or data are considered objectively — that is, emotions do not distort the truth. Sometimes you pose questions, evaluate answers, or figure out how things work. Reducing an idea, theory, or process to its most basic parts might provide you with some insights. Perhaps you archive — that is, preserve — your discoveries so you may use them later.

 

Input

Shared Theme Description

People who are especially talented in the Input theme have a craving to know more. Often they like to collect and archive all kinds of information.

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?

By nature, you usually give good advice. Often people’s questions dictate your choice of reading materials. Whether you are studying something for the first time or revisiting a topic to refresh your memory, you enjoy reading. Making discoveries that can help others brings you much joy. Because of your strengths, you may work your way onto teams whose members exchange intelligent ideas or discuss sophisticated philosophies. Perhaps you enjoy the companionship of individuals who collect information from a variety of sources. Instinctively, you read to stimulate your mind, to broaden your perspective, and to explore familiar as well as unfamiliar subjects. Reading is a solitary activity, which is one of the reasons why you like it so much. You are quite comfortable being alone with your books and your thoughts. Driven by your talents, you enjoy the act of reading. You value the information you acquire in the process. As a person who enjoys reasoning, you probably are drawn to the facts and logic contained in nonfiction material or mystery novels. You revel in gathering data and evidence to arrive at a sensible conclusion before it is presented by the author. It’s very likely that you relish reading about topics that fascinate you. People are not surprised to find you with your nose in a book — that is, reading all the time. When a subject intrigues you, you review a wide range of printed materials. You glean — that is, collect bits and pieces — as much information as you possibly can about your areas of greatest interest.
