FYI – My five strengths were Positivity, Woo, Includer, Communication and Futuristic. The definitions for these are below:
Positivity – People who are especially talented in the Positivity theme have an enthusiasm that is contagious.
Woo – Love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over
Includer – Show awareness of those who feel left out, and make an effort to include them
Communication – Find it easy to put their thoughts into words, and good conversationalist and presenters
Futuristic– Inspired by the future and what could be. They inspire others with their visions of the future.
my initial reaction to finding out my top five strengths was not
surprising at all. I agreed with all five right away and felt proud that
I knew myself.
