Section I: Awareness
Input
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Input theme have a craving to know more. Often they like to
collect and archive all kinds of information.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
Chances are good that you yearn to dedicate sufficient time and energy to all the important parts of
your life, such as personal growth, professional responsibilities, family obligations, friends, health, and
mental stimulation. Reading about topics that interest you or fiction that spellbinds — that is,
fascinates — you is apt to be a factor in your quality-of-life equation. It’s very likely that you continually
expand your sphere of knowledge by reading. A good book or a well-written magazine article can
transport you to other cultures or centuries. The printed word — whether on paper or on a computer
screen — is your passport to new destinations. Like world travelers, you pick up a variety of souvenirs
from your reading, such as facts, data, characters, plots, insights, or tips. Because of your strengths,
you are determined to push for changes that will benefit humankind or Earth itself. Your desire to have
an impact motivates you to enter into conversations with intelligent people. Drawing on their wealth of
knowledge and ideas as well as sharing your treasure trove of wisdom is exciting. These discussions
frequently cause you to think in new ways and to reexamine your purpose in life. By nature, you pay
close attention to current events. Numerous people merely recount what they heard, saw, or read.
Typically you dive deeper into the topic. You are likely to generate theories, concepts, or philosophies
to explain the reasoning behind newsmakers’ decisions. You routinely gather information about
events, policy statements, people, or crises. Your fresh insights are likely to draw equally engaged
thinkers into the conversation. Instinctively, you have acquired a sophisticated vocabulary, comprised
of technical, subject-specific, or complicated words. Whenever you describe the intricate steps of
procedures, you are likely to rely on this terminology. Your attention to detail works to your advantage
when you are addressing experts. Because you comprehend the meanings of their words, you can
talk about how things function in a language they understand.
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?

Intellection
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Intellection theme are characterized by their intellectual
activity. They are introspective and appreciate intellectual discussions.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
Because of your strengths, you probably collect books, publications, correspondence, or public
records. You seek to fully understand the fundamentals of the causes you support. You yearn to know
about the circumstances that can enhance or erode your quality of life. When you feel strongly about
something, you gather as much information as you possibly can. Then you pore over these materials
— that is, read them very carefully. It’s very likely that you have been described as someone who
reads a lot. You probably carry reading material with you just in case you have to wait in line, eat
alone, or sit beside a stranger. Because the printed word feeds your mind, you frequently generate
original plans, programs, designs, or activities. Instinctively, you amass lots of information by reading
about complicated or intricate procedures, systems, or proceedings. As a result, you can describe the
gradual changes that must occur to create a desired outcome. You list the required sequence of steps
for a plan to work. You probably interpret things that can be difficult to understand, such as
regulations, orders, policies, decisions, or problems. Driven by your talents, you combine your
fascination for reading with your ability to figure out what sets individuals apart from everyone else.
You are likely to discover things that interest someone. Then you read more about those topics. You
aim to collect insights that can inspire the person to take advantage of his or her one-of-a-kind talents,
knowledge, and/or skills. By nature, you probably are a well-read individual. Reading is one of your
favorite pastimes. Undoubtedly, the information you gather benefits you as a person and as a
professional. You desire to be regarded by others as a knowledgeable, believable, and accomplished
individual. You dislike being thought of as run-of-the-mill — that is, common or average.

Positivity
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Positivity theme have an enthusiasm that is contagious.
They are upbeat and can get others excited about what they are going to do.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
It’s very likely that you boost the spirits of people with your buoyant enjoyment of life. When you walk
into a roomful of people, you add energy and optimism. When you depart, the absence of your
exuberance and hope-filled outlook is soon noticed. Chances are good that you might feel best about
life when you candidly state your thoughts and feelings. Perhaps it is difficult for you say what is
bothering you. Even so, certain circumstances may compel you to speak frankly. Instinctively, you
have a gift for engaging people in group conversations. You also are an active participant. Your
upbeat attitude energizes the dialogue. You acknowledge the ideas people share. You reinforce the
value of what they say. Consequently, many people become even more willing to reveal their thoughts
and feelings. Because of your strengths, you may feel life is wonderful when you are surrounded by
admirers. Perhaps the presence of certain individuals convinces you that you are influential, special,
or important. Driven by your talents, you might declare, “Life is grand” when certain people stop and
listen as you describe your hopes for the coming months, years, or decades. Perhaps you share your
images of the future with at least one individual a day. This may be one way you keep your dreams
alive.

4
Learner
Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Learner theme have a great desire to learn and want to
continuously improve. In particular, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
By nature, you are attracted to difficult and challenging endeavors. You are not inclined to look for the
easy way out. You are bold. You take risks. You dare to stretch your mind. You test the limits of your
abilities in ways that timid individuals would not attempt. Chances are good that you may prefer to
work in certain groups. Perhaps you are attracted to teams whose activities or challenges intrigue
you. Periodically you choose to give specific matters your undivided attention. Because of your
strengths, you probably identify the traits or experiences that distinguish one person from the next.
Once you familiarize yourself with someone, you can often predict with accuracy how the person will
react in different situations. Driven by your talents, you endorse the importance of acquiring additional
knowledge and gaining new skills. You regard education as an ongoing activity. It’s very likely that you
intentionally include uncommon, highly technical, or sophisticated words in your vocabulary. You
realize that language is a form of knowledge that gives you an upper hand — that is, controlling power
— in conversations, debates, or discussions. It quickly establishes you as an authority figure in
listeners’ minds. First, you capture their attention. Then you take charge of events, projects, meetings,
or problem solving.

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?

Shared Theme Description
People who are especially talented in the Developer theme recognize and cultivate the potential in
others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from these
improvements.
Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out?
Driven by your talents, you capture others’ attention with your open and talkative style. You support
and inspire people. You boost their confidence and support their resolve to respond to change,
overcome obstacles, acquire new skills, gain knowledge, or reach lofty goals. Because of your
strengths, you thrive when you have opportunities to mentor, advise, or train individuals who exhibit
raw talent and untapped potential. By telling others about your experiences and listening to their
stories, you are apt to create an environment in which asking questions and gathering knowledge
become everyday occurrences. Instinctively, you affirm others for who they are. You celebrate their
unique gifts. Your encouraging words inspire and embolden people to be their real and true selves.
Chances are good that you like to lift the spirits of the people around you. You know what to do and
say so individuals feel useful, valued, appreciated, and important. It’s very likely that you often
motivate people. You patiently observe, ask questions of, and listen to each individual. This is how
you pinpoint someone’s talents, skills, knowledge, interests, goals, and/or background. In the process,
you usually discover the best way to train, coach, or praise the person.
