What is YouMap® and why you should care

  1. Strengths — your natural, innate talents (not skills)
  2. Values — your judgment about what’s important in life
  3. Preferred skills — your abilities and expertise that you develop through experience
  4. Personality-based interests — Your preferences relative to interests, passion, and motivation
