Learner - Strengthsfinder 2.0

Here we go again, the 4th installment in my personal look at my top 5 themes. This time I'm looking at the theme Learner.

My Strengthsfinder 2.0 report said, "People who are especially talented in the Learner theme have a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. In particular, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them."

People who know me well will confirm this one for you, particularly the part about process versus learning. That's not to say I'm someone who relishes processes themselves, but that I love being in the throes of learning itself.

This learner theme is one of my trifecta of themes that seem to be all parts of one - Input, Intellection and Learner. The seem to all be about information - gathering it, thinking about it, learning more.

I see Learner at work when I am excited about a project when it is new, but then find myself restlessly yearning to move on when the project reaches a more mature stage.

Strengthsfinder 2.0 said my Top Five Themes are Intellection, Empathy, Input, Learner and Connectedness.

No wonderings on this topic today. I'd love to discuss your thoughts on the themes or Strengthsfinder in general.

Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog. My top three strengths were Input, Learner, and Intellection. (Followed by Futuristic and Positivity.) I hope to write posts about these, and when I do so, I'd love to share my insights with you.
