Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if someone insists on focusing on lower strengths?

Don’t fight them on it. Go with it. If the person insists on processing lower strengths, you might ask them, what do these lower strengths tell you about what is best in you? What do they tell you about who you are at your core as a human being? How might they help you when you are at your best and when you have been successful and when you are connecting in your family and relationships? Are the lower strengths what your family sees as the real you?
