What is StrengthsFinder®?
To help people uncover their talents, Gallup introduced the first version of its online assessment, StrengthsFinder, in the 2001 management book Now, Discover Your Strengths. The book spent more than five years on the bestseller lists and ignited a global conversation, while StrengthsFinder helped millions to discover their top five talents.
In StrengthsFinder 2.0 Gallup unveiled the new and improved version of its popular assessment, language of 34 themes, and much more. Based on a 40-year study of human strengths, Gallup’s Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment helps people discover and describe their talents.

—Donald O. Clifton
