Strengths of Personality

Over the weekend, I was at a fall retreat for a club I'm a part of here at school. Part of the retreat included taking an online test called "StrengthsQuest." This was a test intended to identify the top 5 strengths of my personality, and the point of the retreat was figuring out how each member could use our strengths towards helping the club.
There are 36 total strengths, and 4 type areas (each comprised of 9 strengths). These areas are: Excecution and Performance, Influence, Relationship Building, and Strategic Thinking.
My top 5 strengths were: Adaptability, Empathy, Positivity, Includer, and Harmony. Strangely, all 5 of these strengths fall into the Relationship Building category. I was the only person out of 30 people to have all of my strengths concentrated into only one area.
I'm really not sure how I feel about this. It's a pretty reputable test, and according to the results, I'm horrible at problem solving and carrying out objectives, not to mention influencing and persuading people. The only thing I'm good at is developing friendships, but even I don't think I'm that great at that.
Because of this, the club has made a move and I am now a member of the hospitality and welcoming committee, so at least there's that. I'm happy that I'll finally be able to feel useful for once, instead of that guy who hangs out but never does anything besides talk to people and use the Wesley house for studying :P
