“Ignite Strengthsfinder Talents - Your Top 5 Strengths.” Lead Through Strengths, 4 Nov. 2022,

Yucks: Potential Soul-Sucking Tasks and Situations at Work

A shrinking or stagnant social network — no human interactions for long stretches; a ho-hum audience reception, especially when you were sure they'd be engaged.

Yays: Find Work You Love

Meeting and greeting strangers — you easily take social initiative; everyone is a friend you haven't met yet

Blind Spots: How Your Talents Could be Perceived as Your Weakness Zone if Your Strengths are Overused or Misapplied

Phony, politician; superficial; cares too much what others think

Feeding Strengths: How You're Perceived at Work When Feeding Your Strengths

Highly likable teammate; energy-infuser; outgoing

Honored: Situations and Cultures that Feel Aligned with You at Your Natural Best

A solid inflow of friends, connections, and networking — work and personal relationships will likely blur; greeting new colleagues and customers to help them feel comfortable and welcome

Insulted: How You Might Get Insulted at a Values Level

Being put on a small team with low social variety; solitude — this can happen working from home or in a work environment where people are quiet and keep to themselves
