Recently I took the Strengthsfinder 2.0 personal inventory.  This Gallup created inventory suggests your greatest natural strengths, and is the by product of books like Now Discover Your Strengths, and Strengthfinder 2.0.  It encourages you to work in the areas of your stengths, and not try to compensate for your weaknesses.

I had taken the 1.0 version back in 2003.  The results of the two tests are as follows:

        2003                                                        2007
1. Woo- Winning Others Over              1. Activator
2. Strategic                                         2. Strategic
3. Maximizer                                       3. Achiever
4. Activator                                         4. Futuristic
5. Command                                       5. Maximizer

Two of the strengths changed.  They all seem fairly compatible and logical, but I have to wonder – is the change the result of change IN ME, or changes in the inventory.  I would love to hear from any others who took both the 1.0 and 2.0 variants.  Did you see similar results?


One thought on “Strengthsfinder

  1. I haven’t taken this inventory but I have probably done those spiritual gifts inventories 5 times. There is one gift that always comes up the same but the next 3 or 4 have changed several times. My guess has always been that God has given me extra measures of certain things as the need as shown itself. I’ve been a part of many areas of church ministry and so those things tend to rise to the occasion until someone better at it comes along. Just my 2 cents.
