Of the more than 12 million people who have taken the Clifton StrengthsFinder worldwide, 11% have Deliberative among their top five Signature Themes of talent. This makes it one of the rarer Signature Themes and, as such, it can often be misunderstood or mistaken for other themes. In this installment of Compare and Contrast, I look at the similarities and differences between Deliberative and Analytical, Context and Responsibility. All four of these themes tend to be serious (depending on the other themes that surround them) -- but what drives the serious nature of each of these themes is different and unique to each theme.
This is the second blog in a series of "compare and contrast" blogs. Which themes would you most like to see compared and contrasted? Keep watching -- more are on the way!
