Recently, I took the Strength-Based Leadership Assessment by Gallup.
The results indicate that 4 out of my top 5 strengths are under the theme of "Strategic Thinking".
Now I did take the Strength Finder 2.0 assessment earlier in the spring. At that time my top 5 strengths were spread across 4 different themes.
Making a stronger pivot towards one specific theme feels good. It feels right. I think my most recent scores, or themes is a more accurate assessment of my strengths. As a significant percentage of my cognitive cycles are governed by thinking in general, thinking of ideas, learning, thought experimentation and I just love solving problems. And with this cycle of self-analysis coming to an end, with it also comes clarity of thought.
This tool, the science behind it and the methodology makes sense. It's common sense really. Why try to patch up all your weaknesses. Why not play to your strengths? But first you need to find out what your strengths are.
