Gallup Signature Strengths

Thanks to the Gallup Corporation’s analysis, I can objectively present my five key talents. I don’t try to embody these strengths, they are just naturally the most important parts of who I am.

  • Input – I love collecting information.
  • Learner – I love to learn.
  • Restorative – I love to solve problems, especially to help others.
  • Intellection – I love to think.
  • Ideation – I love collecting and connecting ideas.
