Strategic
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed. Faced
with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
Because of your strengths, you enjoy brainstorming — that is, a group problem-solving technique that
involves the spontaneous contribution of ideas from all participants. Because you have acquired
special skills and knowledge, you can suggest a number of alternative solutions. Your expertise often
serves as a springboard for your own and others’ imaginations. This is the case when you are
encouraged to think about the future. It’s very likely that you are innovative, inventive, original, and
resourceful. Your mind allows you to venture beyond the commonplace, the familiar, or the obvious.
You entertain ideas about the best ways to reach a goal, increase productivity, or solve a problem.
First, you think of alternatives. Then you choose the best option. Instinctively, you can design
innovative plans. You probably raise issues and identify recurring obstacles as you generate tactical
options. Problems and possible solutions become apparent to you. Once you outline action steps, you
quickly execute them one by one. You refuse to waste time questioning your ideas after everything
has been set into motion. By nature, you analyze the lessons of the past to find clues for handling
future situations. Piecing together the causes and effects of historical events allows you to discover
alternate routes to your goal. You are seldom taken by surprise. Why? You probably have studied
your options and crafted innovative solutions. Chances are good that you customarily pinpoint the
core problems and identify the best solutions. You artfully and skillfully eliminate distractions. This
helps people gain a clear understanding of what is happening and why it is happening. You frequently
identify ways to transform an obstacle into an opportunity.
Questions
1. As you read your personalized strengths insights, what words, phrases, or lines stand out to
you?
2. Out of all the talents in this insight, what would you like for others to see most in you?

Relator
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Relator theme enjoy close relationships with others. They
find deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
It’s very likely that you genuinely enjoy activities when just about everything makes sense. You
naturally gravitate to tasks where facts, events, processes, or ideas are methodically outlined.
Instinctively, you have the ability to instruct, train, or offer suggestions to people who look to you for
assistance. By nature, you have close companions who frequently seek your guidance. You help
them find answers to their personal and professional problems. This makes you a valuable friend.
Chances are good that you probably are quite willing to welcome all kinds of individuals regardless of
their appearance, education, social class, native language, religious preference, or political
persuasion. This explains why your circle of friends or acquaintances is so diverse and interesting.
Your openness might encourage people to seek your counsel. Driven by your talents, you bond with
and work well with people who tell you what they want to accomplish in life.

3
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?
By nature, you regard yourself as logical and reasonable. You spontaneously reduce mechanisms,
processes, proposals, ideas, or formulas to their basic parts. You figure out how the pieces interrelate.
Your discoveries tell you why something does or does not function the way it should. Because of your
strengths, you have a keen awareness of how others see you. From time to time, you are delighted to
be in the company of certain admirers. It’s very likely that you tune in to people and figure out what
they are saying and thinking about you. You are acutely aware of how individuals regard you. You
probably curry — that is, try to win — the favor of some and seek to impress others. Chances are
good that you want people to see you as a winner, as “number one,” or as the very best in various
activities. Being quite sensitive to what others think of you probably is a powerful motivating force that
usually works to your advantage. Driven by your talents, you usually have more innovative concepts
to suggest to the group than your teammates. You use methodical reasoning to explain your
proposals, theories, or plans. People are prone to take what you say quite seriously. In fact, your
careful forethought as well as your spontaneous ideas have such importance that they often influence
and impress others.

you?

4
Futuristic
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Futuristic theme are inspired by the future and what could
be. They inspire others with their visions of the future.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
It’s very likely that you invest considerable time creating the future of your own choosing. You
frequently share your ideas about what will be possible in the coming months, years, and decades.
You probably capture people’s attention whenever you describe in vivid detail what you imagine.
Because of your strengths, you naturally spend a lot of time creating innovative ideas about what will
be possible in the weeks, months, years, or decades to come. When you concentrate on your areas of
mastery, you frequently exhibit the behaviors of an inventor, a visionary, or a dreamer. You usually
think about using your finely honed — that is, sharpened — skills and knowledge in ways others have
not considered. Driven by your talents, you are typically enthused about what you can accomplish in
the coming months, years, or decades. Your ability to think about the future naturally feeds your
desire to be the very best. By nature, you sometimes like being an individual performer. Why? Maybe
working alone permits you to concentrate your energy on what you want to accomplish in the coming
months, years, or decades. Instinctively, you have a capacity for envisioning what the coming months,
years, or decades could, should, or will be like. Frequently you are prompted to transform your ideas
into things you can touch, taste, see, smell, or hear.
Questions
1. As you read your personalized strengths insights, what words, phrases, or lines stand out to
you?
2. Out of all the talents in this insight, what would you like for others to see most in you?
