Why choose TraitLab vs StrengthsFinder?

StrengthsFinder 2.0, also known as Gallup CliftonStrengths, provides a ranking of your strengths based on private, internal research. Depending on how much you are willing to spend, the results from the Gallup CliftonStrengths include only your top five or all 34 strengths.

TraitLab provides a ranking of personal strengths based on peer-reviewed, published research. In addition, TraitLab includes a comprehensive analysis of your personality traits, interpersonal style, and career preferences.

Discover your untapped strengths

Learn about your unique stack of 24 character strengths and where you naturally feel engaged and enthusiastic. Then, identify techniques to exercise and apply your top strengths in everyday life.

Unlike StrengthsFinder 2.0, TraitLab uses a strengths system that appears in hundreds of peer-reviewed research publications on well-being, personality, and psychological development.

Explore new career paths

StrengthsFinder 2.0 results are not specific to a particular career or type of occupation, making it difficult to use your results to compare potential jobs or career paths.

With TraitLab, you can easily compare your profile across hundreds of occupations, learn about your relative strengths in each of them, and better understand the trade-offs and opportunities behind different career paths.

TraitLab uses your career interest profile and occupational data to allow you to search potential career paths, while the StrengthsFinder 2.0 provides more general strength-based guidance that is not tailored to any specific occupational area.

Learn about your personality

There's a lot more to your personality than strengths. TraitLab provides an in-depth guide of your unique blend of traits, using a system of over 40 personality dimensions.

Unlike StrengthsFinder 2.0, TraitLab's comprehensive approach combines a science-based personality framework with analyses of your strengths, interests, and interpersonal style.

Understand your interpersonal style

StrengthsFinder 2.0 results may identify some strengths related to relationship building and influencing others, but TraitLab always includes a dedicated analysis of your characteristic interpersonal style.

The interpersonal style analysis in TraitLab describes your natural tendencies in social interactions, as well as associated opportunities and challenges.

TraitLab includes an analysis of your characteristic way of interacting with others, while StrengthsFinder 2.0 may tell you whether you have a particular strength related to relationship building or influencing others.
