Explore Your Results

  • Compare your List 1 and List 2 results.

    • List 1, the self-selected list, is your list of Ideal Strengths. It reveals the skills that you would most like to be using now.  Sometimes, it reveals the skills you most wanted to use when you were starting your career.  Remember then, when you were all bright-eyed and optimistic about your future?

    • List 2, the online test list, is your list of Deep Strengths. When there are strengths here that are not on List 1, the strengths are often skills that you may have been suppressing, or that have become ingrained in you due to the educational or career path you’ve chosen. Do not ignore these “hidden” strengths, because they reveal something deep about you.

  • Click here to explore your results.

  • Click the tabs for your top 5 strengths and read the description for each strength. Write down what careers would match this strength.

    • ​Reflect and write. Write down what you think about each strength. Then give yourself a week or two off.  Reflect on your work, and what makes you happy or unhappy, in light of your List 1 and List 2 strengths. After 2 weeks, read what you wrote, and edit it. See if you have additional insights to add.  Write down ideas for how to incorporate more strengths in your work. (The book itself provides a few ideas for this.) Think about what long-term career direction your might go into to eventually do more of what you love.
