Feeding Strengths: How You're Perceived at Work When Feeding Your Strengths
Dispassionate; the ultimate truth-seeker — even when you don't like the truth, you want to find it through data; objective and clear thinker, especially in trend spotting and decision-making; logical problem solver, even when others are stuck in emotional reactions

Insulted: How You Might Get Insulted at a Values Level
