StrengthsFinder/Strengths Quest

The Clifton StrengthsFinder is a web-based assessment of normal personality from the perspective of Positive Psychology. The purpose of the Clifton StrengthsFinder is to start you on the path to strength by helping you discover your most dominant talents. Talents are the “raw materials” required for strengths development and, the more dominant the talent, the greater the opportunity for strength. The Clifton StrengthsFinder measures the presence of talents in 34 areas, or “themes,” but only reveals your top five themes in order to provide focus on your most dominant talents. The key to building a fully developed strength is to identify your most dominant talents, which are likely found within your top five themes, then complement them with acquired knowledge, skills, and investment.
