IHS 14 – The achiever talent

The achiever talent is focused on finishing tasks. There are a whole cluster of talents that have some focus on doing things, but the achiever talent is the most focused on finishing things.

One of the key indicators of someone having the achiever talent is how they feel about lists. Most people with a strong achiever talent love lists of things to do. Often they write down the list, but sometimes people keep it in their head. Many of them also love crossing off (or ticking) things on the list. When they finish something on the list it gives them a feeling of satisfaction and an energy burst.

Because of this, people with the achiever talent have a large capacity for getting things done. They are often busy people and can spend many hours at the office, or working on their computers.

The idea of a day off, without having to do anything, is not something that excites them. On their ‘day off’ they need to have things to do. Often for them, unless they can complete some things they will feel uneasy.

How talents operate always depends on the other talents that are strong for someone, but mostly things done, is something that is done alone. Therefore, achievers are often happy working alone. This means they might be introverted. However, when they are extroverted, ‘people’ might be something that they do.

Achievers are often detailed focused. This is because in order to finish things, you need to be able to deal with the details.

What about you? Do you think the achiever talent is one of your strongest talents? Why?

    I was an achiever once but as age catches up, it is no longer a strong strength. as it is no longer a priority. So do strengths also change with age and priorities? Now I help others to achieve and it is satisfying.

      Your talents don’t change as you grow older. They are set from the age of about 18. However you use them in different ways in different situations.
      Plus, what you think is achiever, may actually be something else. Sometimes the talents can appear similar.
