Strengths Finder

The Clifton StrengthsFinder is a web-based talent assessment instrument from the perspective of Strengths Psychology. You are presented with 177 items, each consist of a pair of potential self-descriptors, such as “I read instructions carefully” and “I like to jump right into things.” You are asked to choose on a scale to what extent you agree or disagree with the statements. It takes about 40 minutes to complete and you are given 20 seconds to respond to each question after which the assessment automatically advances to the next question.

Taking the assessment is free to library staff members and is completely voluntary. So far about 200 library and NU Press staff members have taken it. For more information contact the Strengths Finder Coordinator, Vince McCoy at vmccoy@northwestern.edu.

NULSA is the Northwestern University Libraries Staff Association. The organization was founded in 1939 to fill some of the social, informational, and educational needs of the library staff. For more information about NULSA contact nulsa@northwestern.edu .
