Find Your Strengths Test Result.   9 comments

前几天公司给实习生发了一本书叫做:现在,发现你的优势(Now,Discover your strengths),此书是全球知名的民意测验和商业研究/咨询公司Gallup出版的。书上要求在阅读了前三章后做一个在线测试。我认真阅读了,也做了测试,下面是测试结果:34个优势主题词中我最符合的5个。我认为是很准确的,之后需要做的事情就是如何在识别了优势的基础上在工作中发挥优势。
  书中提到了辉煌人生的三大原则,与大家分享:
1.若想使某件事成为你的优势,你就必须能始终如一的做好它。
2.你为了把某件事做的出类拔萃,并不需要具备方方面面的优势。
3.你的成功之道在于最大限度的发挥优势,而不是克服弱点。
——————————————————————————————————————————
Maximizer
Excellence, not average, is your measure. Taking something from below average to slightly above average
takes a great deal of effort and in your opinion is not very rewarding. Transforming something strong into
something superb takes just as much effort but is much more thrilling. Strengths, whether yours or
someone else’s, fascinate you. Like a diver after pearls, you search them out, watching for the telltale signs
of a strength. A glimpse of untutored excellence, rapid learning, a skill mastered without recourse to
steps-all these are clues that a strength may be in play. And having found a strength, you feel compelled to
nurture it, refine it, and stretch it toward excellence. You polish the pearl until it shines. This natural sorting
of strengths means that others see you as discriminating. You choose to spend time with people who
appreciate your particular strengths. Likewise, you are attracted to others who seem to have found and
cultivated their own strengths. You tend to avoid those who want to fix you and make you well rounded.
You don’t want to spend your life bemoaning what you lack. Rather, you want to capitalize on the gifts with
which you are blessed. It’s more fun. It’s more productive. And, counterintuitively, it is more demanding.
 
Positivity
You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation.
Some call you lighthearted. Others just wish that their glass were as full as yours seems to be. But either
way, people want to be around you. Their world looks better around you because your enthusiasm is
contagious. Lacking your energy and optimism, some find their world drab with repetition or, worse, heavy
with pressure. You seem to find a way to lighten their spirit. You inject drama into every project. You
celebrate every achievement. You find ways to make everything more exciting and more vital. Some cynics
may reject your energy, but you are rarely dragged down. Your Positivity won’t allow it. Somehow you can’t
quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive, that work can be fun, and that no matter what the
setbacks, one must never lose one’s sense of humor.
 
Relator
Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls you
toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people-in fact, you
may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends-but you do derive
a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are comfortable with
intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a deepening of the
relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their dreams; and you want
them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a certain amount of risk-you might
be taken advantage of-but you are willing to accept that risk. For you a relationship has value only if it is
genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to the other person. The more you share with
each other, the more you risk together. The more you risk together, the more each of you proves your
caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real friendship, and you take them willingly.
 
Woo
Woo stands for winning others over. You enjoy the challenge of meeting new people and getting them to
like you. Strangers are rarely intimidating to you. On the contrary, strangers can be energizing. You are
drawn to them. You want to learn their names, ask them questions, and find some area of common interest
so that you can strike up a conversation and build rapport. Some people shy away from starting up
conversations because they worry about running out of things to say. You don’t. Not only are you rarely at a
loss for words; you actually enjoy initiating with strangers because you derive satisfaction from breaking the
ice and making a connection. Once that connection is made, you are quite happy to wrap it up and move
on. There are new people to meet, new rooms to work, new crowds to mingle in. In your world there are no
strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet-lots of them.
 
Significance
You want to be very significant in the eyes of other people. In the truest sense of the word you want to be
recognized. You want to be heard. You want to stand out. You want to be known. In particular, you want to
be known and appreciated for the unique strengths you bring. You feel a need to be admired as credible,
professional, and successful. Likewise, you want to associate with others who are credible, professional,
and successful. And if they aren’t, you will push them to achieve until they are. Or you will move on. An
independent spirit, you want your work to be a way of life rather than a job, and in that work you want to be
given free rein, the leeway to do things your way. Your yearnings feel intense to you, and you honor those
yearnings. And so your life is filled with goals, achievements, or qualifications that you crave. Whatever
your focus-and each person is distinct-your Significance theme will keep pulling you upward, away from the
mediocre toward the exceptional. It is the theme that keeps you reaching.
