People exceptionally talented in the Competition StrengthsFinder theme measure their progress against the performance of others. They strive to win first place and revel in contests.
Competition is rooted in comparison. For people with strong Competition talents, their performance is their ultimate yardstick. When they look at the world, they are instinctively aware of other people’s performance. They have a deep aspiration to be the best and will work hard to excel — especially in comparison with others. It is not about the effort; it is about the win. Regardless of effort or intention, even if they reach their goal, their achievement will feel hollow if they did not outperform their peers. They need to compare. If they can compare, they can compete, and if they can compete, they can win.
Its Power and Edge
People with strong Competition talents have the ability to stimulate themselves and others to a higher standard of performance. They can raise a group’s achievement level by creating a culture of winning and an aspiration to be the best.
