Analytical
 
Your Analytical theme challenges other people. "Prove it. Show me why what you are saying is true." In the face of this kind of questioning some will find that their brilliant theories will die. For you, this is precisely the point.
 
You do not necessarily want to destroy other people's ideas, but you do insist that their theories be sound. You see yourself as objective and dispassionate. You like data because they are value free. They have no agenda.
 
Armed with these data, you search for patterns and corrections. You want to understand how certain patterns affect one another. How do they combine? What is their outcome? Does this outcome fit with the theory being offered or situation being confronted? These are your questions.
 
You peel the layers back until, gradually, the root cause or causes are revealed. Others see you as logical or rigorous. Over time they will come to you in order to expose someone's "wishful thinking" or "clumsy thinking" to your refining mind. It is hoped that your analysis is never delivered too harshly. Otherwise, others may avoid you when that "wishful thinking" is their own.
 
Significance
 
You want to be very significant in the eyes of other people. In the truest sense of the word you want to be recognized. You want to be heard. You want to stand out. You want to be known.
 
In particular, you want to be known and appreciated for the unique strengths you bring. You feel the need to be admired as credible, professional, and successful. Likewise, you want to associate with others who are credible, professional, and successful. And if they aren't, you will push them to achieve until they are. Or you will move on.
 
An independent spirit, you want your work to be a way of life rather than a job, and in that work you want to be given free rein, the leeway to do things your way. Your yearnings feel intense to you, and you honor those yearnings.
 
And so your life is filled with goals, achievements, and qualifications that you crave. Whatever your focus - and each person is distinct - your Significance theme will keep you pulling upward, away from the mediocre toward the exceptional. It is the theme that keeps you reaching.
 
Communication
 
You like to explain, to describe, to speak in public, and to write. This is your Communication theme at work. Ideas are a dry beginning. Events are static. You feel the need to bring them to life, to energize them, and to make them exciting and vivid. And so you turn events into stories and practice telling them.
 
You take the dry idea and enliven it with images and examples and metaphors. You believe that most people have a very short attention span. They are bombarded by information, but very little of it survives. You want your information - whether an idea, an event, a product's features and benefits, a discovery, or a lesson - to survive.
 
You want to divert their attention toward you and then capture it, lock it in. This is what drives your hunt for a perfect phrase. This is what draws you toward dramatic words and powerful word combinations. This is why people listen to you. Your word pictures pique their interest, sharpen their world, and inspire them to act.
 
Responsibility
 
Your responsibility theme forces you to take psychological ownership of anything you commit to, and whether large or small, you feel emotionally bound to follow it through to completion. Your good name depends on it.
 
If for some reason you cannot deliver, you automatically start to look for ways to make it up to the other person. Apologies are not enough. Excuses and rationalizations are totally unacceptable. You will not quite be able to live with yourself until you have made restitution.
 
This conscientiousness, this near obsession to do things right, and your impeccable ethics, combine to create your reputation: utterly dependable. When aspiring to new responsibilities, people will look to you first because they know it will get done.
 
When people come to you for help - and they will soon - you must be selective. Your willingness to volunteer may sometimes lead you to take on more than you should.
 
Focus
 
"Where am I headed?" you ask yourself. You ask this question every day. Guided by this theme Focus, you need a clear destination. Lacking one, your life and your work can quickly become frustrating. And so each year, each month, and even each week you set goals.
 
These goals then serve as your compass, helping you determine priorities and make the necessary corrections to get back on course. Your Focus is powerful because it forces you to filter, you instinctively evaluate whether or not a particular action will help you toward your goal. Those that don't are ignored.
 
In the end, then, your Focus forces you to be efficient. Naturally, the flip side of this is that it causes you to become impatient with delays, obstacles, and even tangents, no matter how intriguing they appear to be. This make you an extremely valuable team member.
 
When others start to wander down other avenues, you bring them back to the main road. Your Focus reminds everyone that if something is not helping you move toward your destination, then it is not important. And if it is not important, then it is not worth your time. You keep everyone on point.

Empathy
 
You can sense the emotions of others around you. You can feel what they are feeling as though their feelings are your own. Intuitively, you are able to see the world through their eyes and share their perspective.
 
You do not necessarily agree with each person's perspective. You do not necessarily feel pity for each person's predicament - this would be sympathy, not Empathy.
 
You do not necessarily condone the choices each person makes., but you do understand. This instinctive ability to understand is powerful. You hear the unvoiced questions. You anticipate the need.
 
Where others grapple for words, you seem to find the right words and the right tone. You help people find the right phrases to express their feelings - to themselves as well as others. You help them give voice to their emotional life. For all these reasons other people are drawn to you.
 
Harmony
 
You look for areas of agreement. In your view, there is little to be gained from conflict and friction, so you seek to hold them to a minimum.
 
When you know that the people around you hold differing views, you try to find common ground. You try to steer them away from confrontation and toward harmony. In fact, harmony is one of your guiding values.
 
You can't quite believe how much time is wasted by people trying to impose their views on others. Wouldn't we all be more productive if we kept our opinions in check and instead looked for  consensus and support? You believe we would, and you live by that belief.
 
When others are sounding off about their goals, their claims, and their fervently held opinions, you hold your peace. When others strike out in a direction, you will willingly, in the service of harmony, modify your own objectives to merge with theirs (as long as their basic values do not clash with yours).
 
When others start to argue about their pet theory or concept, you steer clear of the debate, preferring to talk about practical, down-to-earth matters on which you can all agree. In your view we are all in the same boat, and we need this boat to get where we are going. It is a good boat. There is no need to rock it just to show that you can.
 
Arranger
 
You are a conductor. When faced with a complex situation involving many factors, you enjoy managing all the variables, aligning and realigning them until you are sure you have arranged them in the most productive configuration possible.
 
In your mind there is nothing special about what you are doing. You are simply trying to figure out the best way to get things done. But others, lacking this theme, will be in awe of your ability. "How can you keep so many things in your head at once?" they will ask. "How can you stay so flexible, so willing to shelve well-laid plans in favor of some brand-new configuration that has just occurred to you?" But you cannot imagine having it any other way. 
 
You are a shining example of effective flexibility, whether you are changing travel schedules at the last minute because a better fare has popped up or mulling over just the right combination of people and resources to accomplish a new project. From the mundane to the complex, you are always looking for the perfect configuration.
 
Of course, you are at your best in dynamic situations. Confronted with the unexpected, some complain that plans devised with such care cannot be changed, while others take refuge in the existing rules or procedures. You don't do either. Instead, you jump into the confusion, devising new options, hunting new paths of least resistence, and figuring out new partnerships - because, after all, there might just be a better way.
 
Responsibility
 
Your responsibility theme forces you to take psychological ownership of anything you commit to, and whether large or small, you feel emotionally bound to follow it through to completion. Your good name depends on it.
  
If for some reason you cannot deliver, you automatically start to look for ways to make it up to the other person. Apologies are not enough. Excuses and rationalizations are totally unacceptable. You will not quite be able to live with yourself until you have made restitution.
  
This conscientiousness, this near obsession to do things right, and your impeccable ethics, combine to create your reputation: utterly dependable. When aspiring to new responsibilities, people will look to you first because they know it will get done.
  
When people come to you for help - and they will soon - you must be selective. Your willingness to volunteer may sometimes lead you to take on more than you should.
 
Consistency
 
Balance is important to you. You are keenly aware of the need to treat people the same, no matter what their station in life, so you do not want to see the scales tipped too far in any one person's favor. In your view this leads to selfishness and individualism.
 
It leads to a world where some people gain an unfair advantage because of their connections or their background or their greasing of the wheels. This is truly offensive to you. You see yourself as a guardian against it.
 
In direct contrast to this world of special favors, you believe that people function best in a consistent environment where the rules are clear and are applied to everyone equally. This is an environment where people know what is expected. It is predictable and evenhanded. It is fair. Here each person has an equal chance to show his or her worth.

Ideation

You are fascinated by ideas. What is an idea? An idea is a concept, the best explanation of the most events. You are delighted when you discover beneath the complex surface an elegantly simple concept to explain why things are the way they are. An idea is a connection.
 
Yours is the kind of mind that is always looking for connections, and so you are intrigued when seemingly disparate phenomena can be linked by an obscure connection. An idea is a new perspective on familiar challenges.
 
You revel in taking the world we all know and turning it around so we can view it from a strange but strangely enlightening angle. You love all these ideas because they are profound, because they are novel, because they are clarifying, because they are contrary, because they are bizarre.
 
For all those reasons you derive a jolt of energy when a new idea occurs to you. Others may label you creative or original or even smart. Perhaps you are all of these. Who can be sure? What you are sure of is these ideas are thrilling. And on most days that is enough.

Analytical

Your Analytical theme challenges other people. "Prove it. Show me why what you are saying is true." In the face of this kind of questioning some will find that their brilliant theories will die. For you, this is precisely the point.

 
You do not necessarily want to destroy other people's ideas, but you do insist that their theories be sound. You see yourself as objective and dispassionate. You like data because they are value free. They have no agenda.
 
Armed with these data, you search for patterns and corrections. You want to understand how certain patterns affect one another. How do they combine? What is their outcome? Does this outcome fit with the theory being offered or situation being confronted? These are your questions.

 
You peel the layers back until, gradually, the root cause or causes are revealed. Others see you as logical or rigorous. Over time they will come to you in order to expose someone's "wishful thinking" or "clumsy thinking" to your refining mind. It is hoped that your analysis is never delivered too harshly. Otherwise, others may avoid you when that "wishful thinking" is their own.

Learner

You love to learn. The subject matter interests you most will be determined by your other themes and experiences, but whatever the subject, you will always be drawn to the process of learning.
 
The process, more than the content or the result, is especially exciting to you. You are energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. The thrill of the first few facts, the early efforts to recite or practice what you have learned, the growing confidence of a skill mastered – this is the process that entices you.
 
Your excitement leads you to engage in adult learning experiences – yoga or piano lessons or graduate classes. It enables you to thrive in dynamic work environments where you are asked to take on short project assignments and are expected to learn a lot about the new subject matter in a short period of time and then move on to the next one.
 
The Learner theme does not necessarily mean that you seek to become the subject matter expert, or that you are striving for the respect the accompanies a professional or academic credential. The outcome of the learning is less significant that the “getting there.”

Discipline

Your world needs to be predictable. It need to be ordered and planned. So you instinctively impose structure on the world. You set up routines. You focus on timelines and deadlines.
 
You break long-term projects into a series of specific short-term plans, and you work through each plan diligently. You are not necessarily neat and clean, but you do need precision. Faced with the inherent messiness of life, you want to feel in control. The routines, the timelines, the structure, all of these help create the feeling of control.
 
Lacking this theme of Discipline, others may sometimes resent your need for order, but there need not be conflict. You must understand that not everyone feels your urge for predictability; they may have other ways of getting things done. Likewise, you can help them understand and even appreciate your need for structure.
 
Your dislike of surprises, your impatience with errors, your routines, and your detail orientation don’t need to be misinterpreted as controlling behaviors that box people in. Rather, these behaviors can be understood as your instinctive method of maintaining your progress and your productivity in the face of life’s many distractions.

Deliberative

You are careful. You are vigilant. You are a private person. You know that the world is an unpredictable place.
 
Everything may seem in order, but beneath the surface you sense the many risks. Rather than denying these risks, you draw each one out into the open. Then each risk can be identified, assessed, and ultimately reduced.
 
Thus, you are a fairly serious person who approaches life with a certain reserve. For example, you like to plan ahead so as to anticipate what might go wrong. You select friends cautiously and keep your own counsel when the conversation turns to personal matters. You are careful not to give too much praise and recognition, lest it be misconstrued.
 
If some people don’t like you because you are not as effusive as others, then so be it. For you, life is not a popularity contest. Life is something of a minefield. Others can run through it recklessly if they so choose, but you take a different approach. You identify the dangers, weigh their relative impact, and then place your feet deliberately. You walk with care.

Arranger
 
You are a conductor. When faced with a complex situation involving many factors, you enjoy managing all the variables, aligning and realigning them until you are sure you have arranged them in the most productive configuration possible.

In your mind there is nothing special about what you are doing. You are simply trying to figure out the best way to get things done. But others, lacking this theme, will be in awe of your ability. "How can you keep so many things in your head at once?" they will ask. "How can you stay so flexible, so willing to shelve well-laid plans in favor of some brand-new configuration that has just occurred to you?" But you cannot imagine having it any other way.
 
You are a shining example of effective flexibility, whether you are changing travel schedules at the last minute because a better fare has popped up or mulling over just the right combination of people and resources to accomplish a new project. From the mundane to the complex, you are always looking for the perfect configuration.

Of course, you are at your best in dynamic situations. Confronted with the unexpected, some complain that plans devised with such care cannot be changed, while others take refuge in the existing rules or procedures. You don't do either. Instead, you jump into the confusion, devising new options, hunting new paths of least resistence, and figuring out new partnerships - because, after all, there might just be a better way.


Maximizer

Excellence, not average, is your measure. Taking something from below average to slightly above average takes a great deal of effort and in your opinion is not very rewarding.
 
Transforming something strong into something superb takes just as much effort but is much more thrilling. Strengths, whether yours or someone else’s, fascinate you. Like a diver into pearls, you search them out, watching for the telltale signs of a strength.
 
A glimpse of untutored excellence, rapid learning, and skill mastered without recourse to steps – all these are clues that a strength may be in play. And having found a strength, you feel compelled to nurture it, refine it, and stretch it toward excellence. You polish the pearl until it shines.
 
This natural sorting of strengths means that others see you as discriminating. You choose to spend time with people who appreciate your particular strengths. Likewise, you are attracted to others who seem to have found and cultivated their own strengths.
 
You tend to avoid those who want to fix you and make you well rounded. You don’t want to spend your life bemoaning what you lack. Rather, you want to capitalize on the gifts with which you are blessed. It’s more fun. It’s more productive. And, counterintuitively, it is more demanding.

Input

You are inquisitive. You collect things. You might collect information - words, facts, books, and quotations - or you might collect tangible objects such as butterflies, baseball cards, porcelain dolls, or sepia photographs.
 
Whatever you collect, you collect it because it interests you. And yours is the kind of mind that finds so many things interesting. The world is exciting precisely because of its variety and complexity.
 
If you read a great deal, it is not necessarily to refine your theories but, rather, to add more information to your archives. If you like to travel, it is because each new location offers novel artifacts and facts. These can be acquired and then stored away.
 
Why are they worth storing? At the time of storing it is often hard to say exactly when or why you might need them, but who knows when they might become useful? With all those possible uses in mind, you don’t feel comfortable throwing anything away. So you keep acquiring and compiling and filing stuff away. It’s interesting. It keeps the mind fresh. And perhaps one day some of it will prove valuable.

Positivity

You are generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation. Some call you lighthearted. Others just wish that their glass was as full as yours seems to be.
 
But either way, people want to be around you. Their world looks better around you because your enthusiasm is contagious. Lacking your energy and optimism, some find their world drab with repetition or, worse, heavy with pressure.
 
You seem to find a way to lighten their spirit. You inject drama into every project. You celebrate every achievement. You find ways to make everything more exciting and more vital. Some cynics may reject your energy, but you are rarely dragged down. Your Positivity won’t allow it.
 
Somehow you can’t quite escape your conviction that it is good to be alive, that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, one must never lose one’s sense of humor.
 
Empathy 

You can sense the emotions of others around you. You can feel what they are feeling as though their feelings are your own. Intuitively, you are able to see the world through their eyes and share their perspective.
 
You do not necessarily agree with each person's perspective. You do not necessarily feel pity for each person's predicament - this would be sympathy, not Empathy.
 
You do not necessarily condone the choices each person makes., but you do understand. This instinctive ability to understand is powerful. You hear the unvoiced questions. You anticipate the need.
 
Where others grapple for words, you seem to find the right words and the right tone. You help people find the right phrases to express their feelings - to themselves as well as others. You help them give voice to their emotional life. For all these reasons other people are drawn to you.
