StrengthsFinder Top 5 Strengths

The StrengthsFinder test is a personality test that was developed by the Gallup Organization (which is famous for their polls).

There are 177 questions in the StrengthsFinder test, and each one has a choice of two statements, which aren’t necessarily directly related.

Here are examples of questions from the StrengthsFinder test:

“I have a commitment to growth” vs “I have a commitment to my values”

“I get to know people individually” vs “I accept many types of people”

For these statements, you’ll choose one of five options, ranging from “Strongly Describes” me to “Neutral.” In other words, you have to choose whether you prefer “I have a commitment to growth” or “I have a commitment to my values,” or stay “neutral,” if both statements, or neither statement, describe you.

It takes about 35-45 minutes to complete the StrengthsFinder test, and then, within seconds, you’re given your top 5 strengths out of 34 possible strengths (themes).

You’ll see these top 5 strengths, in order, starting with the strongest. The 34 strengths in the test are divided into 4 main categories, also known as StrengthsFinder domains:

  • Executing
  • Influencing
  • Relationship Building
  • Strategic Thinking

Once you have your top 5 strengths, you can see which ones fall into each of the domain categories. For example, you might have three Executing strengths, one Influencing strengths, and one Relationship Building strengths.

Because there are 5 top strengths, out of 34 possible strengths, and the order of the strengths matters, there are more than 33 million possibilities. Or to put it another way, the odds of you having the same strengths, in the same order, as someone else are 33,000,000 to 1.

That’s what makes StrengthsFinder such a valuable tool in helping people understand their strengths and how to use them. It’s easy to grasp the basics of StrengthsFinder, but dig down a little deeper, and the test can reveal some incredible insights.

If you pay an additional $69, you can see all 34 of your strengths in order, from strongest to weakest.
