Section I: Awareness 

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 enjoy establishing objectives in the company of others. Using well-placed 

milestones, you document knowledge and skills gained since the last reporting period. You 

probably look forward to reviewing results with individuals who understand education is a 

process that continues throughout one’s life. Instinctively, you prefer having quiet time to 

mull over ideas as well as read and examine interesting topics. Periods of uninterrupted 

thinking give you great pleasure. You probably excuse yourself from noisy, active, or 

distracting situations to thoroughly process your ideas. Because of your strengths, you can 

block out distractions when you are working or studying. You are seldom pulled away from a 

task. You probably desire to understand ahead of time what needs to be done. You also 

expect to receive background briefings and/or a list of a project’s criteria. Armed with this 

information, you move closer to your goal. With ease and certitude — that is, having no 

doubts — you determine what is and is not important to know about an activity, event, or 

project. Chances are good that 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 

value education and scholarship at any level and at any age. Your thirst for knowledge causes 

you to explore many topics of study or specialize in one particular subject. You thoroughly 

enjoy opportunities to acquire additional information, skills, and experiences.  

Belief 

Shared Theme Description 

People who are especially talented in the Belief theme have certain core values that are 

unchanging. Out of these values emerges a defined purpose for their life. 

Your Personalized Strengths Insights 

What makes you stand out? 

It’s very likely that you may have a reputation of toiling for several hours when an 

assignment adds some special meaning to your work, studies, or life. By nature, you may 

have defined some principles that set the tone for certain aspects of your life. Sometimes they 

influence your behavior. Sometimes they reflect who or what is most important to you. 

Sometimes they guide your decision-making. Specific individuals who live, work, or study 

with you might be able to predict what you will say or do in particular situations. 

Instinctively, you place more importance on the purpose and value of what you do than on the 

monetary rewards that accompany success. Chances are good that you sometimes use your 

passion for reading to collect a few ideas for resolving issues, correcting mistakes, or 

overcoming obstacles. Maybe the act of reading allows you to generate some options for 

dealing with certain kinds of predicaments — that is, difficult, perplexing, or trying 

situations. Because of your strengths, you often argue that people should be held to the 

highest moral standards. You insist that those who break the law be required to accept the 

consequences of their deeds. You have little sympathy for people who are caught in the act of 

taking things that do not belong to them. 

Responsibility 

Shared Theme Description 

People who are especially talented in the Responsibility theme take psychological ownership 

of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and 

loyalty. 

Your Personalized Strengths Insights 

What makes you stand out? 

By nature, you derive much satisfaction from pulling newcomers into discussions or friendly 

chitchat. Over time, you may have become more aware of your abilities. They also have 

shown you how to be accountable for your words and deeds. You exhibit maturity beyond 

that of others your age. Chances are good that you are occasionally willing to be vulnerable. 

Perhaps you claim your talents or admit your weaknesses. Your openness may help some 

people know you better as a person. Your straightforward style may convince others you are 

honest, dependable, and reliable. Because of your strengths, you conduct yourself in an 

exceptionally mature and orderly fashion even when your teammates, classmates, friends, 

coworkers, and colleagues are acting childish. Instinctively, you are naturally compelled to 

admit the truth. If someone asked you or told you to intentionally mislead someone, you 

would reply, “I cannot and I will not do that!” Driven by your talents, you consistently work 

at assignments and chores to their conclusion. People have confidence that you will see 

whatever you do through to the very end. 

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? 

Chances are good that you feel that you can accomplish more in the future than you have in 

the past. This explains why you enter into conversations with bright individuals. During these 

give-and-take sessions, you gather knowledge or acquire insights you can use later. 

Absorbing new information, facts, or viewpoints is just one of the ways you keep your mind 

open and your thinking fresh. It’s very likely that you have an ability to instruct others at 

times. Because you like to read certain things, you might have more information to share with 

your students than some educators do. Possibly the individuals you tutor benefit from the 

facts or insights you gather from the printed page or the computer screen. Driven by your 

talents, you delve into intriguing subject matter. You read, write, listen to lectures, 

experiment, and research topics to broaden your understanding of them. Often you think of 

questions no one else has ever asked. Just as often, you find your own answers. Because of 

your strengths, you may be able to imagine what visionaries believe is possible when you can 

read about their innovative ideas and plans. Some of the information you acquire might free 

you to make a mental leap from this moment in time to the future that these thinkers see. 

Instinctively, you may select unusual words to describe your ideas or feelings. Perhaps your 

extensive vocabulary allows you to capture people’s interest. 

Woo 

Shared Theme Description 

People who are especially talented in the Woo theme love the challenge of meeting new 

people and winning them over. They derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a 

connection with another person. 

Your Personalized Strengths Insights 

What makes you stand out? 

Chances are good that you typically are described as a “what you see is what you get” person. 

There is very little mystery about who you are. You usually make a point of talking with 

strangers. You are apt to tell them about yourself without their having to ask you any 

questions. Your forthright approach encourages many individuals to be as open with you as 

you are with them. Instinctively, you unquestionably change the topic when people are 

having difficulty talking with one another. You usually bring newcomers or outsiders 

together by sharing your ideas, telling stories, or reenacting humorous incidents. You often 

serve as the catalyst for good discussions or interesting personal conversations. Because of 

your strengths, you often bare your soul to total strangers. Your openness understandably 

draws many newcomers or outsiders into casual conversations as well as serious discussions. 

In all likelihood, these individuals risk being totally ignored when you fail to introduce 

yourself to them. By nature, you may fill your time with reading when certain friends or 

special support groups are far away. You might peruse — that is, studiously examine — 

fiction or nonfiction, newspaper accounts, correspondence, magazine articles, or research 

papers. This can help you forget the loneliness you might sometimes feel. In the process of 

pulling together a few insights or bits of information, perhaps you broaden your knowledge 

base. Driven by your talents, you often share your ideas, feelings, and experiences. Your 

openness makes it easy for people to figure out who you are. They can begin to understand 

what causes you to think and act the way you do.
