Your Personalized Strengths Insights
What makes you stand out? 
By nature, you feast on the ideas in books and other printed material. In the process of reading, youaccumulate lots of information for its own sake. During the week, you likely spend several hoursreflecting on your treasure trove of facts, data, history, or research. Often one or two of yournewfound concepts, theories, or findings consumes the majority of your thinking time. Because ofyour strengths, you thirst for new ideas and knowledge. Often you lose yourself in a book. You poreover the ideas contained on its pages for long stretches of time. Why? You want to absorb as muchinformation as you can. Chances are good that you possess the physical and mental enduranceneeded to spend hours studying, reading, or researching. The more you know, the more questionsyou have to ask. Your diligence reflects your need to work harder and longer than most people can.You set lofty goals for yourself and relentlessly pursue them. Once you have reached your objective,you direct much of your energy toward a second goal. You are self-motivated. You prefer to pushyourself rather than relax. It’s very likely that you acquire knowledge more easily when you can talkwith others about ideas, concepts, or theories. Thoughts come alive for you when questions areposed and answers are proposed. You have a delightful time thinking out loud and listening tointelligent people express themselves. You naturally document or store in your mind bits and piecesof discussions. You want to refer back to these insights or facts whenever the opportunity presentsitself. Driven by your talents, you are willing to spend time sharing your ideas with intelligentindividuals. Of course, you want them to tell you their latest thinking. Conversations that involve a lotof questions and answers stimulate your mind. You know you have spent your time wisely when youhave a number of new ideas, theories, or concepts to somehow file away or remember for future use.
Input sounds like this:
Ellen K., writer: "Even as a child, I found myself wanting to know everything. I would make a game ofmy questions. ‘What is my question today?' I would think up these outrageous questions, and then Iwould go looking for the books that would answer them. I often got in way over my head, deep intobooks that I didn't have a clue about, but I read them because they had my answer someplace. Myquestions became my tool for leading me from one piece of information to another."John F., human resources executive: "I'm one of those people who thinks that the Internet is thegreatest thing since sliced bread. I used to feel so frustrated, but now if I want to know what the stockmarket is doing in a certain area or the rules of a certain game or what the GNP of Spain is or otherdifferent things, I just go to the computer, start looking, and eventually find it."Kevin F., salesperson: "I'm amazed at some of the garbage that collects in my mind, and I loveplaying Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit and anything like that. I don't mind throwing things away as longas they're material things, but I hate wasting knowledge or accumulated knowledge or not being ableto read something fully if I enjoy it."
