This book is an excellent guide after finishing the Strengths Finder test (free for those who buy the book new). After this book and identifying my strengths, I am working on an action plan to leverage my strengths and maximise them. ( )

The book itself is disappointing. It's 90% synopses of the different strengths you may posses. The big value in this system is the test. Then look up the tips for your strengths and move on. There are tips for dealing with folks of other strengths, but you'll probably forget the advice before you can use it. I think the book is worth purchasing for the test. I truly believe understanding how to leverage your strengths could be life-changing. But I expected more decoding on what my strengths said about potential fits for career, etc. and there was almost none of this. I believe there is a career-finding guide from Gallup.com. Maybe I should've read that instead. ( )

I found Strengths Finder to be an easy read and a rich asset to my in-depth Myers-Briggs knowledge and training.
My top 5 themes in SF were Learner, Input, Individualization, Intellection, and Analytical.

I found SF helpful in that I was struggling to see the positive aspects of my ISTJ personality. In my line of work, I was struggling to capitalize on my personality. SF complemented what I already knew about myself from MB and gave me practical applications to run with.

I had been so down about being valued as a result of my personality that this book literally gave me hope that there was a niche that I could fill, that organizations need personalities like mine to balance out all the others. It spoke of the qualities that I was already aware that I had in a positive way that I had never heard before.

While the information isn't novel or new, it was helpful as a result of the way it was framed. It gave me practical marital advice as well since my husband had taken the test previously and still had his results. I learned about his tendencies and strengths and how to play to them so that he (and we) will have success.

Additionally, our co-workers have taken this test so application spanned from the personal arena, to the marital arena and then to the work arena. Very cool. I can recommend this book to anyone just wanting to develop personally, relationally or professionally. ( )
