#1 - Responsibility

My Gallup Clifton StrengthFinder assessment describes my Responsibility strength as follows:

"Instinctively, you are naturally open and honest about who you are, what you have done, what you can do, and what you cannot do. Your straightforward explanations and stories help listeners see you as you see yourself. You reveal your strengths and limitations. You are forthright and plainspoken. People generally seek your company and want to work with you. Many are impelled to move into action by your words and examples. It’s very likely that you are quite comfortable being honest about yourself with others. You harbor very few illusions about who you really are. Furthermore, you can openly acknowledge your mistakes and shortcomings. This is apt to distinguish you from most people. By nature, you often describe your life in favorable terms even though obligations force you to keep working until you reach your goal. Chances are good that you likely are driven from within to reach your goals as an individual performer. You generally push yourself to excel by recalling the obligations you accepted and the promises you made. Driven by your talents, you may reject the idea that telling a falsehood about something unimportant is acceptable. Perhaps you refuse to make an innocent social excuse to protect someone’s feelings."
