In my foundations of learning class, my classmates and I took a test to see which five out of thirty-four signature themes describes us best. I finished the test in about thirty minutes. As it was calculating which were my top five themes, I browsed through the 34 themes in the strength quest booklet to see which five I thought would suit me.
