Gallup CliftonStrengths is designed to help you discover and focus on your strengths and talents. Developed by Gallup, the tool is based on the idea that you are more productive and fulfilled when you focus on your strengths, rather than on trying to improve your weaknesses. Gallup CliftonStrengths consists of a 177-item assessment that identifies your top five strengths out of a total of 34 themes. Once these are identified, you can use your knowledge of these strengths to improve your performance in various areas of your life, including career.
TypeFinder is designed to help you identify your personality type and gain a better understanding of your strengths, weaknesses, and preferences. Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) framework, the assessment consists of a series of questions that measure four dimensions of personality:
- Extraversion / introversion (E or I)
- Sensing / intuition (S or N)
- Thinking / feeling (T or F)
- Judging / perceiving (J or P)
Once the assessment is complete, you are assigned one of 16 personality types, connoted by four letters from the pairings above, each with its own unique set of traits, characteristics, and behaviors. This information can be used to help you improve communication, teamwork, and decision-making, as well as in your personal growth and development.
DISC is designed to help you gain insights into your behavioral preferences and communication styles. It can serve as an alternative or addition to TypeFinder. Developed by psychologist William Moulton Marston, the assessment measures four dimensions of behavior: Dominance (D), Influence (I), Steadiness (S), and Conscientiousness (S). The assessment consists of a series of questions that assess your tendencies in each of these four areas. Based on your responses, you are assigned a primary and secondary behavioral style, which can be used to understand your strengths, weaknesses, and communication preferences. This information can be useful in a variety of settings, including work, relationships, and personal development.
