CliftonStrengths as a Filter
CliftonStrengths® is a powerful tool for a variety of reasons. Most view their Strengths as a way to increase performance and research has demonstrated that it can give advantage to people around the world. One way that is less often utilized is viewing Strengths as a way to filter through the world, as a lens for how we see and interact with our environment.
There is little available on CliftonStrengths as a filter. In order to offer my own perspective on this, I wanted to share how each of your Strengths can work as a lens for your world, how they can help you understand how others see the world differently. Below is your guide to seeing the world through your Strengths and appreciating the ways we all see the world a little differently.
We are all giving unique Strengths that impact how we interact with and think about our lives. Understanding our own filters and bias can help us improve our approach to almost every situation. Going further, it allows us to better understand those who we live and work with, to see and celebrate how they understand the world.

It seems like every public speaker, life coach, and school has their own form of assessments and personality tests. There’s good reasons for it. These tests allow you to get a better understanding of who you are and what your tendencies are. People can find out everything from their deepest motivations to which Harry Potter character best fits them.
One recent addition to the personality test world is K Test One’s Personal Color Test. Here's my review of the test, what it is, how it works, and why it might actually be worth trying.
