CliftonStrengths (formerly known as StrengthsQuest) is a 30-minute online assessment that helps the user identify their natural talents. Gallup developed the assessment after a decade of studying how organizations function. After completion of the assessment, it provides the user with a customized report of top five talents and how best to use them. The assessment is used at more than 600 schools and universities in North America. More than two million people and 4,000 members have used CliftonStrengths to discover, develop and apply talents for academic, personal and career success.

The CliftonStrengths philosophy is not about ignoring weaknesses. Instead, it focuses on natural talents and not allowing weaknesses to prevent success. By learning how strengths can be harnessed, it allows someone to fulfill their deepest potential. As a result, we know Phi Psis recognize their true potential.
