Good morning all,

What's your favorite or go-to quiz/tool/book for learning more about your professional or personal strengths?

I've had an interest in diving into this more but it seems like there's so many out there that I'm not sure where to start.

All suggestions welcome but free is always a good thing in this regard and preferably things that are a bit more insightful than say a Buzzfeed "Which Hogwarts House Are You?" quiz (you know, the ones that go something like: "Q: How do you handle this situation? A: 1. Bravely  2. Intelligently  3. Yellow  4. Like a snake").

We recently did StrengthsFinder as a company and I personally loved it - I would recommend getting the book (that comes with a free code to take the assessment) to really be able to apply learnings from the assessment.

I am currently a big Enneagram fan (I think this was the free assessment I took but I am such an obvious 3 I didn't really need it... lol) for both personal and professional applications.

One that I haven't heard much about but that I really enjoyed getting into several years ago was the 7 Fascination Languages. They have "archetypes" based on your top two languages which I found really interesting (my top two are Power and Prestige, which makes me either The Victor or The Maestro - although I think mine might be different ow that it's been a few years and I'm in a much different place!).

Can you tell I love this stuff?? :D

+100 for StrengthFinder. Being able to compare our team's strengths has made a serious difference in how we work together as well as how I view what I'm good at and where I can improve. Great exercise :)

Wow, thank you Carina Duffy ! I hadn't heard of any of those so this is awesome!

I'm digging the vibe in the vocabulary used in the 7 Fascination Languages 😄
