My Strengths

Relator

A Relator enjoys close relationships with others and find deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal.

Learner

A Learner has a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. In particular, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them.

Responsibility

A person who takes psychological ownership of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty.

Adaptability

A person with Adaptability prefers to “go with the flow.” They tend to be “now” people who take things as they come and discover the future one day at a time.

Belief

A person with certain core values that are unchanging. Out of these values emerges a defined purpose for my life.
