People exceptionally talented in the Futuristic theme are inspired by the future and what could be. They energize others with their visions of the future.

Futuristic in Action

People with strong Futuristic talents love to peer over the horizon. They are fascinated by the future. They anticipate and imagine in detail what tomorrow could or should be. They usually see the future positively. While the details of the picture will depend on their other strengths and interests — a better product, a better team, a better life or a better world — it will always inspire them. This vision energizes themselves and others. They can paint a picture of the future for their team members.

This Theme's Power and Edge

Individuals exceptionally talented in the Futuristic theme are visionaries. Their emotional anticipation and visualization of a better future can inspire them and others to make their dream a reality. Their vision for tomorrow can push them to new heights.


People exceptionally talented in the Relator theme enjoy close relationships with others. They find deep satisfaction in working hard with friends to achieve a goal.

Relator in Action

Relator talents describe a person’s attitude toward their relationships. People with strong Relator talents are drawn to others they already know. They do not necessarily shy away from meeting new people — in fact, they may have other themes that cause them to enjoy the thrill of turning strangers into friends — but they do derive a great deal of pleasure and strength from being around their close friends. A person with strong Relator talents forms close relationships with people.

This Theme's Power and Edge

People especially strong in Relator talents form solid, genuine and mutually rewarding relationships. Their relationships are close, caring and trusting. They may know many people, and they can relate to all kinds of people. But they also have a very small group of friends with whom they have incredibly deep relationships.


People exceptionally talented in the Arranger theme can organize, but they also have a flexibility that complements this ability. They like to determine how all of the pieces and resources can be arranged for maximum productivity.

Arranger in Action

Arrangers are conductors. When faced with a complex situation involving many factors, people with strong Arranger talents enjoy managing all of the variables, aligning and realigning them until they are sure they have arranged them in the most productive configuration possible. They are shining examples of effective flexibility, whether they are changing travel schedules at the last minute because they found a better fare or are mulling over just the right combination of people and resources to accomplish a new project. From the mundane to the complex, they are always looking for the perfect configuration.

This Theme's Power and Edge

Arrangers have a natural ability to orchestrate people and resources for maximum effectiveness. They are at their best in dynamic situations. Confronted with the unexpected, they jump into the confusion, devise new options, hunt for new paths and figure out new.


People exceptionally talented in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.

Strategic in Action

People with strong Strategic talents can sort through the clutter to find the best route. You can’t teach this skill. It is a distinct way of thinking — a unique perspective on the world at large. This outlook allows them to see patterns where others see complexity. Mindful of these patterns, they envision alternative scenarios, always asking, “What if this happened?” This recurring question helps them see, plan and prepare for future situations. They see a way when others assume there is no way. Armed with this strategy, they move forward.

This Theme's Power and Edge

People with strong Strategic talents bring creative anticipation, imagination and persistence to the groups and projects they work on. They can quickly weigh alternative paths and determine the one that will work best and most efficiently. They find the best route moving forward.


People exceptionally talented in the Responsibility theme take psychological ownership of what they say they will do. They are committed to stable values such as honesty and loyalty.

Responsibility in Action

People with strong Responsibility talents take psychological ownership of anything they commit to, whether it is large or small, and they feel emotionally bound to follow it through to completion. They keep their promises and honor their commitments. They don’t let people down, and they work very hard to fulfill all of their responsibilities and keep their word..

This Theme's Power and Edge

Those with strong Responsibility talents feel a deep sense of dedication toward and ownership of the things they commit to. They are people of their word, and others know they can rely on and trust them. Their conscientiousness, their drive for doing things right and their impeccable ethics combine to create the reputation of being utterly dependable.
