No pay no gain.
I finally know my top 5 strengths via the on-line test, which costs me $13.71 to buy the book with a test code inside it (ideally, ignore the shipping fee).
What’s more, I got a 18-page report, in which the detailed explanation of each top strength is given. Each theme is then divided into two parts: shared theme description + personalized strengths insights, where the latter is more interesting due to its uniqueness.
Here, after general description of each theme, I pick up some sentences corresponding to each theme from the personalized part.
Intellection: People are introspective and appreciate intellectual discussions.
Driven by your talents, 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.
Frog: when I read this sentence, I just can’t help laughing. Is that really me?! Anyway, it’s a good chance to learn English, where the vocabulary covers all parts of the life.
Input: People like to collect and archive all kinds of information.
Characteristically you prefer to discuss ideas rather than delve into your own or another’s personal life.
Frog: Bingo! I’m always glad to have a deep discussion, though chance doesn’t frequently knock my door.
Learner: People have a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. Particularly, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them.
Maintaining an intellectual status quo is unacceptable to you. You are likely to escape from situations and avoid people who want you to keep doing what you already know how to do well.
Frog: It’s a good remind. It seems pursuing a PhD study in ever-changing IC field is a superduper correct choice for me (; Stop complaining, and embrace such a precious current moment with 100% gratefulness!
Restorative: People are adept at dealing with problems. They are good at figuring out what is wrong and resolving it.
You are keenly aware of your flaws and you work hard to correct them.
Frog: Yes, I know. That’s why sometimes I just try to let it be, otherwise, too tired. Life is short. Enough is as good as a feast.
Achiever: People have a great deal of stamina and work hard.
Because of your strengths, you work for hours, days, weeks, or even months to produce outstanding results. You probably cannot rest until each requirement is met.
Frog: Oh, poor me! That’s not me, not me, not me………
I donate a tag to myself : a 100% poor struggling soul ^^
