    Default Clifton Strengths

    Has anyone taken Clifton Strengths? What were your results?

    All of the members of the moderation team just took it as sort of a team building exercise and this is what we got.


    The strengths in italics are ones unique in the moderation team. The color coding is based on the theme domains. Red is Strategic Thinking, Purple is Executing, Yellow is Influencing, and Blue is Relationship Building.

    Some interesting data points
    • Ideation, Individualization, and Strategic were tied for the most prevalent strengths
    • 21 of 45 (47%) of our top skills fall under Strategic Thinking.
    • 12 of 45 (27%) of our top skills fall under Relationship Building.
    • 6 of 45 (13%) of our top skills fall under Executing.
    • 6 of 45 (13%) of our top skills fall under Influencing.
    • Coriolis has the most strengths in strategic thinking
    • Jack has the most in relationship building
    • Merced has the most in influencing
    • I have the most most in execution

    Thanks to @Merced for making the wonderful chart.

    I've never heard of it. How does it differ from the VIA strengths test?

    I'm not familiar with that one. In 1998, the Father of Strengths Psychology, Donald O. Clifton, Ph.D. (1924-2003), along with Tom Rath and a team of scientists at The Gallup Organization, created the online StrengthsFinder assessment. In 2001, they included the first edition of StrengthsFinder with the bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths. In 2004, the assessment's name was formally changed to "Clifton StrengthsFinder" in honor of its chief designer.

    In 2007, building on the initial assessment and language from StrengthsFinder 1.0, Rath and Gallup scientists released a new edition of the assessment, program, and website, dubbed "StrengthsFinder 2.0." Rooted in more than 40 years of research, this assessment has helped millions discover and develop their natural talents. Now it's called CliftonStrengths.

    One of the guys who wrote that first book is Marcus Buckingham. He ended up leaving, starting his own firm and he has a different system that he created. So there are a few of these systems out there.

    Oh.... hmmm, well what I'm talking about came out of research at the University of Pennsylvania. I've posted links to it before, but here it is again, if you're interested.

    Positive psychology

    It's available under questionnaires. You have to create an account, but it's free. I do remember the test taking a while, though.

    As I was looking at this, I was thinking about the diversity we have in the modbox. We have 2 INTJs, 2 INFJs, 1 ENFJ, 1 ENFP, 1 ESTP, 1 ESFP, and 1 ESTJ. We have a high number of Ni doms and auxes but still a lot of variety. It kind of shows in these results as they are so varied. However there isn't a clear connection between the strengths and 4 letter type. Look at @Coriolis vs me or @Lexicon vs @fidelia. We are extremely different from each other. The heavy strategic might relate to Ni or at least intuition in general.

    I think the strengths test further illustrates that, despite having some of the same basic functions at the core, MBTI is a pretty broad descriptor overall. The same MBTI type comes in a variety of flavors. I’ve always found Enneagram useful for filling in some of those gaps. Life experiences (among other things) can certainly impact what is fostered, and how it’s expressed in the long term, as well.



    Going back over my test results, I can find a decent amount of it relatable if I think about it in the most general terms. The phrasing in the videos & some of the written parts has a cold/“corporate vibe” (not sure how else to put it), that created a bit of a challenge relating, initially.

    I guess most haven't heard of it. I'll post a link to a test sometime soon for those that want to take it in order to generate some further discusion. First come, first serve.

    I took the high five one earlier today after seeing someone post about it in their blog.



    Not one to one with the clifton test but its the one I took and the other is down now so... thats that. I think most translate except for perhaps the first one ‘thinker’

    I thought you had to pay to take the Clifton test.

    When I took this back in... around 2003? (my company/job paid for it).... I got Input, Intellection, Connectedness, Deliberative, and Strategic

    Personally I disagree(d) with Input, as I don't really collect facts or anything... but I guess it could apply to my i.d.'ing and remembering birds, wildflowers, and natural history type stuff? But little else. haha. Also, I think those results might have been closely tied to my having been really focused on academics growing up and also getting a science degree in college - that was only a few years after I graduated. otoh... of the entire list of strengths, these are probably in the top for sure, since I don't relate to most of the strengths.
