People exceptionally talented in the Analytical StrengthsFinder theme search for reasons and causes. They have the ability to think about all the factors that might affect a situation.
People with strong Analytical talents challenge others to “Prove it.” They take a critical approach to what others might quickly accept as truth. They search for the reasons why things are the way they are. They want to understand how certain patterns affect one another. How do they combine? What is the outcome? Does this outcome fit with the theory offered or the situation at hand? These are their questions. Others see them as logical and rigorous. Some may feel that they are negative or unnecessarily critical when they are simply trying to understand something. They bring an objective and dispassionate examination that enables them to find the root causes and effects and then develop clear thoughts based on facts.
Its Power and Edge
Those with Analytical talents have valuable insights because they are able to uncover the essential facts needed for excellence in any endeavour. This type of thinking helps them and others become clearer about what excellence is and how it can be attained.
