Answer preview

Adaptability is my second strength. The self-assessment revealed several aspects related to and informing this strength. One of them is that I like living in the moment. Rather than perceive the future as a fixed destination, I see it as a place I can create out of the choices I make right now. Due to this, I discover my future one choice at a time. This strength allows me to respond willingly and adjust accordingly depending on the demands of the moment, even if doing so will pull me away from my initial plans. My adaptability has allowed me to excel numerous times, especially when encountering an unforeseen detour. A perfect illustration of this strength at play was when my friends and I planned to meet up at a café in the afternoon to discuss an assignment. Unfortunately, the immense rainfall made it challenging for us to meet up. However, rather than canceling the meeting, I requested that we have a virtual meeting instead of a physical one. This adaptability allowed us to meet, albeit virtually, and discuss the assignment as we had anticipated.
