What should I do about my weaknesses?

In the realm of positive psychology and the strengths-based approach embraced by HIGH5, the focus is primarily on nurturing and leveraging one's strengths rather than dwelling on weaknesses. The reason for that is the growing scientific evidence of the benefits of the strengths-based approach as opposed to the weakness-fixing approach.

If you're still wondering what to do about your weaknesses, consider these suggestions: 

  • Share them with others
  • Compensate with strengths for the same family/domain
  • Find complementary partnerships
  • Reshape your activities if possible 
  • Develop just to get "good enough"
