I have always believed in focusing on your strengths rather than your weaknesses, which The Strengths Finder 2.0 book also agrees. I recently took a personality test to find your strength traits because my friend wanted to know what category I fall into. The test took about 30 minutes to complete and I have to say it’s pretty interesting what I found about myself.
From years of paying close attention to my behaviors, I’m pretty much aware of my personalities However, some of the traits from the test are surprising. If you haven’t taken this test yet you should because it will help you understand a bit more about yourself.
The test results showed my traits in order: Competition, Maximizer, Arranger, Command, and Relator.
I definitely ranked high in the Competition category because I’m always in it to win it. Maximizer, Arranger, and Command would have to be nearly a point or two off from each other. Relator would definitely be last.
The book has a clear definition of each category, so if you wanted to read up on my personalities or find out your own, you should read the book.
