For example, I'm a very theory-type person. I'm an INTP in the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator test. INTPs are excellent analysts, we think we can and we will analyse everything down to the greatest detail. That said, we are highly impractical people. I would strongly prefer studying Physics (which is one of my greatest interests) to actually working it out, i.e. being an engineer/inventor.
If you've noticed, my strength : theory/ideas (in general), my weakness : application/action.
You can see where this is going... I think more than I take action! (By far, taking action is one of the most important ingredients in IM, isn't it?)
Would it be better to leverage on my strength and continue generating great ideas and theories, or to improve on applying and doing things instead?
Now I don't want to base this thread on myself... back to the general question. Is it better to make better use of a strength that we already have, or get out of our comfort zones and work on a weakness (i.e. turning it into a strength)?
