    This list seems different from when I took the actual Clifton Strength's Finder many years ago. I think that is posted on here somewhere too. I need to dig it up for comparison.

    EDIT: I found it here: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...ll=1#post83019

    Looks like ideation (now #7), futuristic (now #12), intellection (now#6), and strategic (now #29) dropped of my list of top 5, and were replaced by includer (now #1), learner (now #2), developer (now #4), and analytical (now #5). Input (now #2) remains a top 5 strength.

    I suppose this is a major blow to the idea that these things are consistent over time. A lot can happen in six years.

    Maybe I will dig up my of strengths finder books and see what the action plan here looks like.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    The "ideas for action" for my new top 5:
    INCLUDER:
    • Consider roles in which you can take responsibility for representing voices that are not ususally heard. You will derive a great deal of satisfaction from being a spokesperson for these people.
    • Look for opportunities to bring together people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. You can be a leader in this area.
    • Help those who are new to an organization or group get to know other people. You will always be adept at quickly making people feel accpeted and involved.
    • As an anti-elitist, you may clash with those who feel they have earned the right to perks and power. Rather than disputing their claim, use your Includer insights to help everyone find common grounf and value in their contributions.
    • Acknowledge the dissonance you feel when you must be the bearer of bad new. Look for partners who can help you justify you position so you don't apologize or soften the message too much.
    • Not every person is loveable or even likable. While many of your friends or collegues may be put off by difficult people, you have a natural capacity to truly care for all people. Let others know that if they ever come to the end of their rope with a problematic individual, they can call on you to step in.
    • Choose roles in which you are continuously working and interacting with people. You will enjoy the challenge of making everyone feel important.
    • Partner with someone who has dominant Activator or Command talents. This person can help you when you have to deliver news that might hurt someone's feelings.
    • Realize that people will relate to each other through you. You are a conduit for information. You can interact with all parts and all people in a group and keep them effectively connected to each other.
    • Explain what we all have in common. Help others understand that to respect the differences among us (our diversity), we must begin by appreciating what we all share (our similarities)

    INPUT:
    • Look for jobs in which you are charged with acquiring new information each day, such as teaching, research, or journalism.
    • Devise a system to store and easily locate information. This can be as simple as a file for all the articles you have clipped or as sophisticated as a computer database.
    • Partner with someone with dominant Focus or Discipline talents. This person will help you stay on track when your inquisitiveness leads you down intriguing but distracting avenues.
    • Your mind is open and absorbent. You naturally soak up information in the same way that a sponge soaks up water. But just as the primary purpose of the sponge is not to permanently contain what it absorbs, neither should your mind simply store information. Input without output can lead to stagnation. As you gather and absorb information, be aware of the individuals and groups that can most benefit from your knowledge, and be intentional about sharing with them.
    • You might naturally be an exceptional repository of facts, data, and ideas. If that's the case, don't be afraid to position yourself as an expert. By simply following your Input talents, you could become known as the authority in your field.
    • Remember that you must be more than just a collector of information. At some point, you'll need to leverage this knowledge and turn it into action. Make a point of identifying the facts and data that would be most valuable to others, and use this information to their advantage.
    • Identify your areas of specialization, and actively seek more information about them.
    • Schedule time to read books and articles that stimulate you.
    • Deliberately increase your vocabulary. Collect new words, and learn the meaning of each of them.
    • Identify situations in which you can share the information you have collected with other people. Also make sure to let your friends and colleagues know that you enjoy answering their questions.

    LEARNER:
    • Refine how you learn. For example, you might learn best by teaching; if so seek out opportunities to present to others. You might learn best through quiet reflection; if so, find this quiet time.
    • Develop ways to track the progress of your learning. If there are distinct levels or stages of learning within a discipline or skill, take a moment to celebrate your progression from one level to the next. If no such levels exist, create them for yourself.
    • Be a catalyst for change. Others might be intimidated by new rules, new skills, or new circumstances. Your willingness to soak up this newness can calm their fears and spur them to action. Take this responsibility seriously.
    • Seek roles that require some form of technical competence. You will enjoy the process of acquiring and maintaining this expertise.
    • As far as possible, shift your career toward a field with constantly changing technologies or regulations. You will be energized by the challenge of keeping up.
    • Because you are not threatened by unfamiliar information, you might excel in a consulting role (either internal or external) in which you are paid to go into new situations and pick up new competencies or languages quickly.
    • Research supports a link between learning and performance. When people have the opportunity to learn and grow, they are more productive and loyal. Look for ways to measure the degree to which you and others feel that your learning needs are being met, to create individualized learning milestones, and to reward achievements in learning.
    • At work, take advantage of programs that subsidize your learning. Your organization may be willing to pay for part or all of your instructional coursework or for certifications. Ask your manager for information about scholarships and other educational opportunities.
    • Honor your desire to learn. Take advantage of adult learning opportunities in your community. Discipline yourself to sign up for at least one academic or adult learning course a year.
    • Time disappears and your attention intensifies when you are immersed in studying or learning. Allow yourself to "follow the trail" by scheduling learning sessions during periods of time that will not be interrupted by pressing engagements.

    DEVELOPER:
    • Make a list of people you have helped learn and grow. Look at this list often, and remind yourself of the effect you have on the world.
    • Seek roles in which your primary responsibilities include facilitating growth. Teaching, coaching, or managing roles might prove especially satisfying to you.
    • Notice when others succeed and tell them. Be specific about what you saw. Your detailed observations of what lead to their victory will enhance their growth.
    • Identify the mentor or mentors who recognized something special inside you. Take the time to thank them for helping you develop, even if this means tracking down a former schoolteacher and sending him or her a letter.
    • Partner with someone with strong individualization talent. This person can help you see where each person's greatest talents lie. Without this help, your Developer instincts might lead you to encourage people to grow in which they lack talent.
    • Carefully avoid supporting someone who is consistently struggling in his or her role. In such instances, the most development action you can take is to encourage him or her to find a different role--a role that fits.
    • You will always be compelled to mentor more people than is possible. To fulfill this inner drive while maintaining a primary mentoring focus, consider the impact of being the "mentor for the moement." Many of the most poignant and memorable developmental moments occur when the right words are delivered at the right time--words that clarify understanding, reignite a passion, open eyes to an opportunity, and change life course.
    • Don't over invest in loosing causes. Your natural inclination to see the best in people and situations can create a blind spot that will keep you from moving on to more opportune situations.
    • Your developer talents might lead you to become so invested in the growth of others that you ignore your own development. Remember, that you cannot give what you do not have. If you want to have a bigger impac on the well-being and growth of others, you will need to keep growing yourself. Find a mentor or coach who can invest in you.
    • Make a list of people you would like to help develop. Write what you would consider to be each person's strengths. Schedule time to meet with each of them regularly--even if for only 15 minutes--and make a point of discussion their goals and their strengths.

    ANALYTICAL:
    • Choose work in which you have to analyze data, find patterns, and organize ideas. For example, you might excel in marketing, financial or medical research or in database management, editing, or risk management.
    • Whatever you role, identify credible sources on which you can rely. You are at your best when you have well researched sources of information and numbers to support your logic. For example, identify the most helpful books, websites, or publications that can serve as references.
    • Your mind is constantly working and producing insightful analysis. Are others aware of that? Find the best way of expressing your thoughts: writing, one-on-one conversation, group discussions, public lectures or presentations. Put value to your thoughts by communicating them.
    • Make sure your accumulation and analysis of information always leads to application and implementation. If you don't naturally do this, find a partner that pushes you from theory to practice, from thinking to doing. This person will help ensure that you analysis doesn't turn into paralysis.
    • Take an academic course that will expand your analytical talents. Specifically, study people whose logic you admire.
    • You can be particularly helpful to those who are struggling to organize large quantities of data or having a hard time bringing structure to their ideas.
    • Partner with someone who has strong activator talents. This person's impatience will move you through the analytical phase to the action phase.
    • You may remain skeptical till you see solid proof. Your skepticism ensures validity, but others may take it personally. Help others understand that your skepticism is primarily about data, not people.
    • Look for patterns in data. See if you can find a motif, precedent, or relationship in the scores or numbers. By connecting the dots in the data and inferring a causal link, you be able to help others see patterns.
    • Help others understand that your analytical approach will often require data and other information to logically back up new ideas they might suggest.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
