Connectedness - Strengthsfinder 2.0

Once more I'm taking a look at one of my top five Strengthsfinder themes, Connectedness. This is the final in my set of top 5 themes.

My Strengthsfinder 2.0 report said, "People who are especially talented in the Connectedness theme have faith in the links between all things. They believe there are few coincidences and that almost every event has a reason."

Guilty. And, reading the description, I have to say it's a little tough for me to end on this one. It sounds a little woo-woo, you know, a little "out there." But, Connectedness really is more than that. For one thing, I think this strength theme allows me to see all sides of a situation and where people can can find common ground. Connectedness shows up in my work by allowing me to see the common themes in the data I have gathered. Also, within this theme, I find myself connecting people with other people or resources that can help them. And, honestly, there is a little woo-woo in there. I do believe that all of us are connected to each other as well as every other living thing on this planet – and the planet itself – by way of something I'll certainly never fully understand.

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

Here's what I wonder: Overall, how do people with primarily "thinking" themes and one or two "relating" themes find their way in the business world? These themes are not action oriented, at least through the lens of business-as-we-know-it. Is there a bias towards "impacting" and "striving" themes, that is those that are about influencing people and working harder?
