We each have our uniqueness and discovering your Strengths Twin enhances the experience. The complexities of humanity are far greater than 5 words. Talking to someone who shares your same top 5 themes brings a deeper understanding of how your theme combinations can work together. It can draw out fresh aspects of each theme to expand more opportunities. It can also reveal some of the struggles you may face to use your themes productively. Sharing these with someone who really understands who you are, is a unique opportunity.
Following the launch of the Strengths Twin finder in August 2017, Releasing Strengths are regularly connecting people who share the same top 5 Clifton Strengths themes. As more people register, the chances of finding a match increase. Several pairs of twins have grown into triplets, quads and we even have one set of quintuplets.
Currently, 41 pairs of Twins, 6 sets of Triplets and 2 groups of Quads and 1 set of Quints are sharing the experience. Registrations span 49 different countries with the majority in the US, followed by Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. Surprisingly, one pair of Strengths Twins work for the same company and in the same office. The most common themes from those registering are Learner®, Strategic®, Relator®, Achiever®, Individualization®, Maximizer® and Input®.
Do your themes shape your career choice?
Possibly, the themes help us understand our talents and how we best do things, they do not identify which industry sector to choose. One group of Strength Quads have all applied their themes to the same career path, with roles in Learning and Development. Conversely, one pair of Strength Twins consists of an Exec PA and a golf course groundsman. They both take care and responsibility in looking after their very different subjects.
