Today’s attribute is Relator. I’m not calling them strengths anymore because I don’t feel much affinity for them. Again its in the Relationship category. It says people talented in this enjoy close relationships with others. They find deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal. I’d pretty much rather work alone. I did enough group projects in school. Or should I say carried enough group projects in school, because it seemed thats always how it went. Though I was the weak link once in a group. I put forth my best effort, but I happened to be grouped up with people all smarter than me.
It seems that this talent is the core of the relationship building category. Being weak in it probably explains why all the ones in that category are on my back half of the 34 total strengths. I’m just not a people person. But I do want to work at it. No man is an island. And I’m not going to get very far by myself. If there is one thing I learned from the Power of Who, its that I should ask for things, otherwise I’ll never get them. Specifically referring to help from my network.
