Strength Finders Test

Of course you all know we have been studying strengths and weaknesses in womens group. I took a strengthfinders test in September of last year and I thought I would post the results like my friend Kim did so just maybe you can know me just a little bit better.

My top 5 strengths in order are:


Now, for the brief discription of each.

Positivity-They are upbeat and can get others excited about what they are going to do. Enjoys chatting with all sorts of people. The acquisition of infromation is a basic need. Genuinely fascinated with the mystery of life. You sense youare part of the lives of other individuals and accept they are part of your existence...this outlook on life influences what you say or do for people. Often experience satisfaction with your life when someone asks you to scutinize, assess, examine or evaluate things such as people, processes, plans or mechanisms. You probably decide life is grand when you have more ideas to offer the group than anyone else....often your assertiveness surprises you as well as others.

Woo-You derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with another person. You often bare your sould to total strangers. Your openness understandably draws many newcomers or outsider into casual converstaions as well as serious discussions. "what you see is what you get" person. There is little mystery about who you are. You usually make a point of talking to strangers. You spark the interests of others with your keen wit and sociable nature. You can quickly establish an easy rapport with individuals by telling a joke, smiling introducing yourself, or giving a compliment. You recongnize laughter as a universal language. You are apt to remind individuals of ways they can use their knowledge, skills, or talents to benefit an individual or the entire team. You often enlighten people about potential partnerships, common interests, or shared goals. When you have an idea, the right words, stories or examples quickly come to mind. The animated give and take of debates stimulates your thinking.

Adaptablility-Prefer to "go with the flow." Tend to be "now" people who take things as they come and discover the future one day at a time. Most comfortable reacting to whatever happens as it occurs. You welcome change in processes, plans, procedures or the ways resources are distributed. You can adjust to a wide range of circumstances without becoming upset and thus causing others to become troubled. You can handle or deal with issues the moment they arise. You are probably grumpy on the days you are forced to follow rigid schedules or procedures. By nature you generally let the pressures of each day determine what you need to revise, correct, repair, remodel, upgrade, revamp or rework. You enjoy reading it allows you to gather information to expand your storehouse of knowledge. You have a habit of avoiding the company of restless people when you want to give your undivided attention to a book magazine article, newspaper account, personal correspondence or official document. You have the good sense to be flexible and accept change as it occurs. This explains why your friends often describe you as unflappable or not easily excited.

Restorative-Adept at dealing with problems. Good at figuring out what is wrong and resolving it. You usually offer people useful suggestions about what needs to be fixed, upgraded, renovated or done better. You enjoy pondering what you can revise, correct, renovate, upgrade or relocate. Whey you are curious about a person, event, topic, project, activity, or idea, you devote much energy and time to studying it. Today offers you plenty of opportunities to do things better. You participate in conferences, seminars or classes when ideas are exchanged about how to make things better. A natural talker, you enjoy telling others about the upgrades you have made.

Communication-Easy to put thoughts into words. Good conversationalists and presenters. You amuse people with your stories. You enliven conversations so everyone involved has fun. You probably express yourself with ease and grace. It is very likely you drive much personal pleasure from reading, because you are continually filling your mind with fresh ideas. You freely share your ideas or feelings with others. Being tongue tied or unable to speak freely is rarely a problem for you. Ease with language enables you to meet, greet and treat strangers as if they already were your friends. You very much enjoy the animated give and take of a lively discussion.

Well, that is pretty much me in a nutshell. I can't believe how right on this test was....crazy!!!

If you want to take this test you will need to buy the book Strengthfinders or and go to website and put in the code in the book. I warn you it takes quite a bit of time to complete so make sure you got a good hour to spare.
