"…with her self-esteem perilously balanced on her excellence, she could only interpret failure as catastrophic. [She] shamed herself when she made a mistake,becoming upset not only about her performance but about who she was as a human being. "

Your Signature Theme Report
Many years of research conducted by The Gallup Organization suggest that the most effective people are those who understand their strengths and behaviors. These people are best able to develop strategies to meet and exceed the demands of their daily lives, their careers, and their families.
A review of the knowledge and skills you have acquired can provide a basic sense of your abilities, but an awareness and understanding of your natural talents will provide true insight into the core reasons behind your consistent successes.
Your Signature Themes report presents your five most dominant themes of talent, in the rank order revealed by your responses to StrengthsFinder. Of the 34 themes measured, these are your “top five.”
Your Signature Themes are very important in maximizing the talents that lead to your successes. By focusing on your Signature Themes, separately and in combination, you can identify your talents, build them into strengths, and enjoy personal and career success through consistent, near-perfect performance.
“Wouldn’t it be great if …” You are the kind of person who loves to peer over the horizon. The future fascinates you. As if it were projected on the wall, you see in detail what the future might hold, and this detailed picture keeps pulling you forward, into tomorrow. While the exact content of the picture will depend on your other strengths and interests—a better product, a better team, a better life, or a better world—it will always be inspirational to you. You are a dreamer who sees visions of what could be and who cherishes those visions. When the present proves too frustrating and the people around you too pragmatic, you conjure up your visions of the future and they energize you. They can energize others, too. In fact, very often people look to you to describe your visions of the future. They want a picture that can raise their sights and thereby their spirits. You can paint it for them. Practice. Choose your words carefully. Make the picture as vivid as possible. People will want to latch on to the hope you bring.
You live in the moment. You don’t see the future as a fixed destination. Instead, you see it as a place that you create out of the choices that you make right now. And so you discover your future one choice at a time. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have plans. You probably do. But this theme of Adaptability does enable you to respond willingly to the demands of the moment even if they pull you away from your plans. Unlike some, you don’t resent sudden requests or unforeseen detours. You expect them. They are inevitable. Indeed, on some level you actually look forward to them. You are, at heart, a very flexible person who can stay productive when the demands of work are pulling you in many different directions at once.
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 these reasons you derive a jolt of energy whenever a new idea occurs to you. Others may label you creative or original or conceptual or even smart. Perhaps you are all of these. Who can be sure? What you are sure of is that ideas are thrilling. And on most days this is enough.
Woo stands for winning others over. You enjoy the challenge of meeting new people and getting them to like you. Strangers are rarely intimidating to you. On the contrary, strangers can be energizing. You are drawn to them. You want to learn their names, ask them questions, and find some area of common interest so that you can strike up a conversation and build rapport. Some people shy away from starting up conversations because they worry about running out of things to say. You don’t. Not only are you rarely at a loss for words; you actually enjoy initiating with strangers because you derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection. Once that connection is made, you are quite happy to wrap it up and move on. There are new people to meet, new rooms to work, new crowds to mingle in. In your world there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet—lots of them.
You can sense the emotions of those 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 to others. You help them give voice to their emotional life. For all these reasons other people are drawn to you.
its Samantha blush here. :) who else would it be…? okay yeah so today i took a “strength finders” test, which cost about $10 and took about 35 minutes. above are my results, which you may or may not have read… but if you did i underlined all the parts i thought was most like me.
I really like that I got futuristic because I think it is dead on and I think this is me because one day i hope to change the world. i want to be a model, or a writer, or basically be anything that puts me in a position to travel and share my ideas with others. (sorry i cant figure out how to make this underline go away now, i dont even know how i got it…. but i’ve been trying for a while now to get rid of it and its not working….) Adaptability sort of surprised me when i first started reading it, since the first lines were “You live in the moment. You don’t see the future as a fixed destination”. I was like”….whaaaat?” because it contradicts my #1 strength (Futuristic) but then as i read on i understood more of how it was like me.
Ideation,i think, is so me. I often just spend my time trying to think of new ideas (its not hard for me to do, just harder for me to follow through with). i quite enjoy brainstorming and trying to come up with many different possibilities.
Woo(Winning Over Others). this is me. infact today while bussing home i became friends with this guy, my age but goes to mt.Doug highschool. he’s a real sweetheart. (hey my underline is gone… i didnt even do anything…cool! ) and all the time last year, since i was in public school and there were about 400 people in each grade and there were 4 grades (9-12) i would try to meet as many new people as possible. i know i met, and became friends with (so not just met once never talked again) with 300+ people in multiple grades. i would float from cliche to cliche (or group to group) and just try to spend time with as many people as possible. it is just what i love to do, but unfortunantly at my new private school (with 400 people in the whole highschool which is grades 8-12) that is very hard to do because at this school whoever you hang out with on the first day is who you are stuck with for the rest of the time you are at this school. this i was not warned about…
okay enough of that for now…
empathy, i dont really know what to write about this, i try to relate to people as well as i can
okay yeah so thats my little rant thingy. i just wanted to update you guys so you know sorta whats going on and let you know more about me. and i want to encourage you to take this test (the link is at the top) and let me know more about you. seriously i love making internet friends :)
also, what would you like to see/read more of on here?
As some of you know this year i switched from public school to private school. At this new school we do have less pro-D days (if you do not know what that is it is a day where the kids stay home but the teachers go in and go to workshops and learn how to teach better and all that teacher stuff) but what we do have is a five day weekend for thanksgiving! Which starts today (incase you are american or not from Canada, Canadian thanksgiving is this weekend) and ends on Tuesday (that is when we go back).
So in the spirit of thanksgiving (the thankfulness part of it, for this post) here is a list of some of the things i am thankful for
I am thankful for:
- my thankfulness journal that my church/Elise gave me
- where i live
- my home
- my family
- my brother’s huge heart
- my dance studio
- being the type of person who loves to give back
- the privilege to go to school and learn
- getting on Erick’s cute girls list (Erick is very cute, and kind, and a year older than me)
- Shasta, my beagle dog
- sunrises and sunsets
- busker festivals
- kind people
- MY FOLLOWERS!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!! <3
- the notes on my posts. and the incredible people who give them to me
- autumn leaves bright colors falling and stripping the treas bare
- religious freedom
- free health care
- public transit
- the sound of rain pelting against my window late at night
- And more but I am too lazy to write them all up here when they are already in my thankfulness journal
the first to help you up are the ones who know how it feels to fall.
