Relator Theme

I love to grow closer to my friends!

I love to grow closer to my friends!

I have noticed “two kinds” of Relator . One is the person who has many friends and goes fairly deep them. The other is the person that has only “2 or 3” really close friends but goes “5,000 feet deep” with each of them. Knowing how to makes friends is a skill you share with others. It is never easy making friends but for you it sure looks like it.

Do You Have Strengthsfinder Relator Talent?

Strengthsfinder Relator talent is a real gift for those that are connected with the Relator. A Relator can share in a very natural way how friendships should work. How to build trust and create long lasting friends comes very easy for the Relator. Emulating their behaviors and attitudes will help you make friends with others as well.

• You derive great pleasure and strength from being around your closest friends.
• You feel most comfortable forming intimate relationships with a few confidants.
• You enjoy opening up and forming deep relationships with people you deem worthy.
• You want to understand the feelings, fears, goals, and dreams of others on a deeper level.
• You are more than willing to risk vulnerability in exchange for a genuine relationship.

At your best, you are caring, trusting, forgiving, generous, and the best type of friend a person can have. On the other hand, you can be too “clique-forming” and accused of being a “crony” or “playing favorites.”
