In 1928, Dr. William Marston presented in his book Emotions of Normal People that our behavior, motivation, method of connecting, and strengths could be categorized into four primary quadrants: Dominant, Influencing, Steady and Compliant.

While each of us are, to a large degree, a combination of each style, we have one that is primary and then likely a secondary style.   With each style, there are corresponding strengths, motivators, and methods of connection.

Here are some key strengths found in each of the 4 primary quadrants.
