How do you know what your strengths are? One quick way is to go the Via Institute on Character’s site to take their free quiz to identify your top five, or “signature” character strengths.
Marcus Buckingham also has a StrengthsFinder personal assessment tool to allow people to find their ingrained talents. Marcus is the author of First, Break All the Rules and co-author of Now, Discover Your Strengths. Marcus’s Top 5, for the record: Futuristic, Context, Focus, Ideation, Intellection.
