CliftonStrengths Answers, "Who Am I?"

We've all wondered who we are and what makes us unique.

The CliftonStrengths assessment answers those questions. This online test (formerly named the Clifton StrengthsFinder) measures the intensity of your talents in each of the 34 CliftonStrengths themes. These 34 themes represent what people do best. They categorize all that's right with humankind -- distilled down to 34 different themes.

Immediately after completing the CliftonStrengths assessment, you'll receive your results in a report featuring customized descriptions of your rank-ordered dominant strengths. When you purchase CliftonStrengths 34 over Top 5, you'll receive additional reports. Check out the differences here.

What About Weaknesses?

Most people are taught to work on their weaknesses -- to fix them. But instead, they should be learning how their strengths can overshadow their weaker areas.

Being well-rounded doesn't necessarily lead to higher performance. You can achieve the highest levels of success only when you stop trying to be a little bit good at everything and instead hone what you are naturally best at.

In other words: Focus less on being well-rounded and more on becoming better at what you're already great at.

But discovering your strengths is just the start -- applying and investing in them sparks real change.

Don Clifton, the father of strengths-based psychology and inventor of CliftonStrengths, said: "We all define ourselves through our work and accomplishments, and the more opportunities we have to know excellence, the more rewarded we will be."
