Personal Strengths Test for Women

My sis just sent me this link:

I have taken a find your strengths test before but I like this one a lot. It's a scenarios-based survey, with results, by Marcus Buckingham, author of other work-from-your-strengths type books. His new book is called "Find Your Strongest Life: What the Happiest and Most Successful Women Do Differently."

I don't want to share my results right away but apparently the results range along these "types":

Advisor, Caretaker, Creator, Equalizer, Influencer, Motivator, Pioneer, Teacher, and Weaver

If you want to share your results by commenting on my blog, feel free!


  1. I took the says Motivator for me. I sort of doubt it. I found the choices in the scenarios very limited/limiting, and the scenarios themselves not so relevant to my life. But, it was interesting. I prefer the enneagram system of categorizing personality types. No matter how I try to cheat that test, it comes out the same. :-)

  2. I know what you mean. And I also noticed the "child" examples were all about boys -- since I have one I could relate. I found that sometimes the answer I was looking for wasn't there. And it was definitely geared toward working women.


Thanks for your comment! It will be reviewed and posted ASAP.
