Strengths Test

After the video presentation and sponsorhip of the book, i was able to finally answer the Strength Finder and pulled up results that best describes me now. From the talk of Marcus Buckingham, i learned that as we grow up, we become more of what and who we really are, there will be minor changes but the core person inside will always be me the way i was born to be. Strengths should be nourished further and keep on pushing them to create more impact or even change the world. You may ask, how about weakness, it is not being said to ignore and not improve our weak points. The talk only tells us to focus more of our time to further the strengths we currently have to optimize ourselves for whatever purpose we intend to use for.

Note however, that you can’t access the test if you have not purchased the book, the online strengths finder need a unique access code, once registered it can’t be used again. Biggy thanks to our company who pushes every employee to be the best they can. Living our mantra of, Change the world, have Fun and Make Money. I love this book, but not as much as i love my hubby. (Yun oh, isingit daw ba talaga HUBZ ko. hehe)

And because i perceive this test to really identify the consistent behavior and strength within me, i am sharing with you my top 5 strengths according to the test, they call this as my signature themes report. Buy the book and you wont regret it.

Your Signature Themes

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.

Strategic

The Strategic theme enables you to sort through the clutter and find the best route. It is not a skill that can be taught. It is a distinct way of thinking, a special perspective on the world at large. This perspective allows you to see patterns where others simply see complexity. Mindful of these patterns, you play out alternative scenarios, always asking, “What if this happened? Okay, well what if this happened?” This recurring question helps you see around the next corner. There you can evaluate accurately the potential obstacles. Guided by where you see each path leading, you start to make selections. You discard the paths that lead nowhere. You discard the paths that lead straight into resistance. You discard the paths that lead into a fog of confusion. You cull and make selections until you arrive at the chosen path—your strategy. Armed with your strategy, you strike forward. This is your Strategic theme at work: “What if?” Select. Strike.

Achiever

Your Achiever theme helps explain your drive. Achiever describes a constant need for achievement. You feel as if every day starts at zero. By the end of the day you must achieve something tangible in order to feel good about yourself. And by “every day” you mean every single day—workdays, weekends, vacations. No matter how much you may feel you deserve a day of rest, if the day passes without some form of achievement, no matter how small, you will feel dissatisfied. You have an internal fire burning inside you. It pushes you to do more, to achieve more. After each accomplishment is reached, the fire dwindles for a moment, but very soon it rekindles itself, forcing you toward the next accomplishment. Your relentless need for achievement might not be logical. It might not even be focused. But it will always be with you. As an Achiever you must learn to live with this whisper of discontent. It does have its benefits. It brings you the energy you need to work long hours without burning out. It is the jolt you can always count on to get you started on new tasks, new challenges. It is the power supply that causes you to set the pace and define the levels of productivity for your work group. It is the theme that keeps you moving.

Learner

You love to learn. The subject matter that interests you most will be determined by your other themes and experiences, but whatever the subject, you will always be drawn to the process of learning. The process, more than the content or the result, is especially exciting for you. You are energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence. The thrill of the first few facts, the early efforts to recite or practice what you have learned, the growing confidence of a skill mastered—this is the process that entices you. Your excitement leads you to engage in adult learning experiences—yoga or piano lessons or graduate classes. It enables you to thrive in dynamic work environments where you are asked to take on short project assignments and are expected to learn a lot about the new subject matter in a short period of time and then move on to the next one. This Learner theme does not necessarily mean that you seek to become the subject matter expert, or that you are striving for the respect that accompanies a professional or academic credential. The outcome of the learning is less significant than the “getting there.”

Relator

Relator describes your attitude toward your relationships. In simple terms, the Relator theme pulls you toward people you already know. You do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people—in fact, you may have other themes that cause you to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends—but you do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around your close friends. You are comfortable with intimacy. Once the initial connection has been made, you deliberately encourage a deepening of the relationship. You want to understand their feelings, their goals, their fears, and their dreams; and you want them to understand yours. You know that this kind of closeness implies a certain amount of risk—you might be taken advantage of—but you are willing to accept that risk. For you a relationship has value only if it is genuine. And the only way to know that is to entrust yourself to the other person. The more you share with each other, the more you risk together. The more you risk together, the more each of you proves your caring is genuine. These are your steps toward real friendship, and you take them willingly.

Adaptability

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.

Deeply In Love

Filed under: Quiz Links — khentutz @ 6:00 am

Blogosphere is full of wonders in itself. One time you are just reading other’s chronicles but the next thing you know, you become a blogger yourself. And it doesn’t stop there, you link blogosphere friends and other sites that interests you. Everyday you learn from their posts and in return by sharing your own thoughts and experiences others get the chance to know you and learn from you. And that’s how I have learned about a new hobby that I wish I would be successful at. Earning by blogging. I had been a member of payperpost months ago but has not taken opportunities just yet until now that an opportunity was made available for me.

blog advertising

Doing your passion and getting paid is what I call life, you do what you love to do and earn extra bread for every day use or online shopping. Trying this new service of a technological emergence of electronic money and purchasing power will make life shine with added colors. If ever I would earn from this blogging and getting paid by pay per post, I’d be spending them for purchases online or be kind to donate it. I’ll cross the bridge when I get there. For now, I am sharing this post to let you know that you could earn with blogging made possible by payperpost. There’s no harm in trying, so why not click the links on my blog and have an account for yourself.

I am currently in love with what I do and will love it deeply for the extra help I got from blogging.

Curiosity Strikes

Filed under: Quiz Links — khentutz @ 4:15 am

After reading the recent post from http://justforthetrip.blogspot.com my curiosity made me try it out as well. Here is my rating:

<a href=”http://mingle2.com/blog-rating”><img style=”border: none;” src=”http://mingle2.com/img/bb/blog_rating/pg.jpg” alt=”Online Dating” /></a><p>Mingle<sup>2</sup> – <a href=”http://mingle2.com”>Online Dating</a></p>

 Just like what http://justforthetrip.blogspot.com said, it rates the blog for number of illicit word counts not on the content itself. No wonder the tripper has was disapponted with the rating system. He was tagged R for a count of private part in the context of his posts. How much rating should a clinical and scientific blog could get if the post is about reproduction and the organs that are responsible for mating? This is rating is baloney. Just for laughs and nothing more than that. As for me, the Parental Guidance somehow fits, but not because of content but because of having pissed twice in my posts and shit once in my entries.  If regulating bodies would want a thorough screening, then they should get along with the fast paced environment of technology. Counting malicious words is not enough. For parents, in as much as you can, don’t let them read our blogs, specially if they are confused on their sexuality or would want to adventure on their sexuality. We might give them ideas, and our community grows. Hahaha. I suppose this goes for parents who are homophobes. Well, it would be a great help for the problem of scarcity and population boom, same sex unions will foster lesser chances of increasing the birth rate thus leaving more resources to rationalize among a fewer number.

I missed the lucky 7-7-7 post and the feared friday the 13th post i guess it didn’t made an impact on me. i’ll post another entry later. Something i have pondered and drooled over the weekend. 

 And before i forget, my dear thanks to trip for the rating link. At least i am aware it was only pissed and shit that was read on my blog. hahaha. 🙂

So i’ll just be sharing with you the links of the two sites i find funny and amusing as i learn to know more about my self.

Are you straight?

Filed under: Quiz Links — khentutz @ 7:37 am

The previous post was far subtle than this one. This test would really identify your sexuality… Others may not be brave enough to share them, but for me, who cares, this is me. Love me, hate me.

The Multidimensional Scale of Sexuality

According to my answers, it is likely that I identify as
Homosexual.

Complete set of results

Homosexual: 5
Homosexual with some heterosexuality: 1
Asexual: 0
Concurrent bisexual: 0
Heterosexual: 0
Heterosexual with some homosexuality: 0
Past heterosexual, currently homosexual: 0
Past homosexual, currently heterosexual: 0
Sequential bisexual: 0

Information

The Multidimensional Scale of Sexuality was devised by Larry Kurdek, B. Berkey and T. Perelman-Hall. It is an extension of the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid, recognising that sexual identities can change over time, people can identify with more than one sexual identity, and that asexuality is a valid sexual identity. The Multidimensional Scale of Sexuality was published in the “Journal of Homosexuality” in 1990.

Sexual Orientation Test

Filed under: Quiz Links — khentutz @ 7:24 am

Funny it is that in this contemporary times, sexual orientation underwent morphism. Not only are there heterosexuals anymore. No one in this world asked for everyone to accept and understand the not-so-straight persons. All they ask is just respect. Here’s a gist of myself undertaking the test. Feel free to react on how it went, I for myself went ballistic and did some cart wheels. Hehe. Here it is:

Klein Sexual Orientation Grid

I scored an average of 3.95

0 1 2 3 4 5 6
Heterosexual Bisexual Homosexual

Meaning

This result can also be related to the Kinsey Scale:

0 = exclusively heterosexual
1 = predominantly heterosexual, incidentally homosexual
2 = predominantly heterosexual, but more
than incidentally homosexual
3 = equally heterosexual and homosexual
4 = predominantly homosexual, but more than incidentally
heterosexual
5 = predominantly homosexual, incidentally heterosexual
6 = exclusively homosexual

Summary

The idea of this excercise is to understand exactly how dynamic a person’s sexual orientation can be, as well as how fluid it can be over a person’s lifespan. While a person’s number of actual homo/heterosexual encounters may be easy to categorize, their actual orientation may be completely different. Simple labels like “homosexual”, “heterosexual”, and “bisexual” need not be the only three options available to us.

Love Language

Filed under: Quiz Links — khentutz @ 7:04 am

The link gave me a realistic approach on what i expect from a lover / partner. Subconsciously, all I really want is quality time, it doesn’t matter much what we do but I have a desire just to spend time alone with my partner. The quiz also awakened my senses that after all, I’m not an idealistic lover, the perks of having a lover seems to matter as well. Should you want to know for yourself, take the quiz. Thanks to my dear kelly clarkson singing friend, Stayz. 😉

The Five Love Languages

My primary love language is probably
Quality Time
with a secondary love language being
Physical Touch.

Complete set of results

Quality Time: 10
Physical Touch: 6
Acts of Service: 5
Words of Affirmation: 5
Receiving Gifts: 4

Information

Unhappiness in relationships, according to Dr. Gary Chapman, is often due to the fact that we speak different love languages. Sometimes we don’t understand our partner’s requirements, or even our own. We all have a “love tank” that needs to be filled in order for us to express love to others, but there are different means by which our tank can be filled, and there are different ways that we can express love to others.
