What's your top 5?
How do you see them playing out in your life?
Now that I have my top five strengths summed up into five foundational words, I can continue to build on them day to day. Recognizing and improving your strengths can have a much more impactful effect on your life, than focusing on your weaknesses, especially if you’re confused about a career path.
What's your favorite theme?
If I had to pick a favorite theme, I’d have to say it’d be ‘Includer’. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always tried to include people in activities—maybe it’s because I always felt bad for Rudolph when he was excluded in all those games:)
What's the one theme that "gets in your way"?
After giving my top five a hard look, I honestly can’t say any of them get in my way. After all, they are my top strengths.
How has knowing your top 5 empowered you to live a more authentic life?
Knowing your top five can drastically change the way you view yourself, or solidify what you already thought about yourself. In my case, I was torn over what career path I wanted to commit myself to. After taking the test and having my strengths further explained, not only did I feel assured and confident, but also, I came to a conclusion on which career path to take.
