You are determined to be more productive than you have been in the past. You are motivated from within to prove yourself to yourself each day. Because of your strengths, you have an undeniably sound work ethic. You probably devote lots of time and energy to your work or studies. You enjoy producing outstanding results. You feel restless until you reach your goals and measure up to your high standards of excellence. By nature, you work with much more intensity in the evening. This awareness probably allows you to increase your productivity, improve the quality of your outcomes, enhance your efficiency, and better manage your priorities. It’s very likely that you work diligently to discover how something functions. You probably enjoy studying various problems, processes, or mechanisms for hours. Why? They simply fascinate you. You certainly find this research mentally stimulating.

Instinctively, you are a happy-go-lucky individual who can find the good in just about anyone or anything. Your optimism and enthusiasm are wonderful gifts that you share. Driven by your talents, you are cheerful and easygoing. You typically emphasize what you have in common with people. You diplomatically sidestep areas of disagreement. Your even-tempered nature and friendly disposition cause you to see the good in practically everyone. You probably feel sad for those who consistently look for the worst in individuals and are gleeful when they find it. Chances are good that you feel very good about the choices you make as long as they are supported with facts and logic. You probably put aside intuition and emotions when making important decisions about your life. Because of your strengths, you are filled with astonishment and hope about life when visionary thinkers describe the many surprises in store for humankind in the coming months, years, or decades.

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?
It’s very likely that you are fond of most people. You tend to be nonjudgmental. You usually find something good and likeable about every person you meet. Often you want to involve them in your activities and introduce them to others. You are undoubtedly puzzled by individuals who actively search for reasons to exclude people from their circle of friends, family members, coworkers, classmates, or teammates. Chances are good that you feel life is wonderful when you can forge bonds with many of the individuals you meet. You have a gift for befriending just about anyone. You immediately notice those whom others leave out of conversations, forget to involve in meetings, or fail to invite to social events. Instinctively, you are more sensitive than most people to what it feels like to be left out of a group, a conversation, or an activity. This is apt to explain why you intentionally invite a wide range of individuals into your circle of friends, family, or acquaintances. Driven by your talents, you ordinarily join in games for fun. You intentionally avoid people who make individuals feel like theyare unwelcome guests or outsiders. You argue to let newcomers participate. In your opinion, this is much more important than winning. Because of your strengths, you notice that life is a lot better for you when people accommodate your biological need to work in the evening. You customarily produce optimal — that is, most satisfactory — results in the evening or the hours after midnight.

ACTIVATOR
Shared Theme Description

People who are especially talented in the Activator theme can make things happen by turning thoughts into action. They are often impatient.

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?
By nature, you undertake projects on your own. This is apt to occur when individuals delay decisions, block approvals, or continue meeting without finalizing plans. You probably help them overcome their objections and quell their fears by starting to work. You simply intend to prove to them that the impossible is possible. Because of your strengths, you typically take the lead. You seldom wait for orders or directions from people in positions of authority. You probably operate on the premise that it is better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. Using this approach, you have delivered impressive results and reached important goals. Instinctively, you naturally gravitate to situations where you can be your true self. You feel life is wonderful when people listen as you share stories about your successes, failures, talents, limitations, hopes, or fears. Driven by your talents, you want to be in charge. As soon as you have made up your mind, you are eager to get started. People who interfere with your progress probably irritate you. It’s very likely that you notice that people heed your demands. What you say and how you say it can even frighten and threaten people. You probably have used this effect to influence individuals to do what you want.

BELIEF
Shared Theme Description

Your Personalized Strengths Insights

What makes you stand out?
Driven by your talents, you may be attracted to individuals whose honesty and integrity are above reproach. Perhaps you seek to penalize people who betray trust by taking things without permission. It’s very likely that you want only the very best for your family. This is a top priority for you. Your desire to provide for loved ones is evident in what you say and do every day. Instinctively, you usually come away refreshed after conversing with future-oriented thinkers. You probably inspire many of them with your passion for projects or causes that benefit humanity as well as the environment. You likely feel restless when your life lacks a noble purpose. Because of your strengths, you realize the wealth you accumulate means little to you when you are not surrounded by a delightful and diverse mix of people. You relish differences and would be ill at ease — that is, feel anxious — if forced to remain only in the company of people who are very much like yourself. Chances are good that you place more importance on the purpose and value of what you do than on the monetary rewards that accompany success.
