How did Gallup create BP10?

Gallup's scientific approach to studying success reveals that top performers in any role exhibit similar talents - recurring patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior that naturally equip them to excel in a role. Gallup researchers applied this same research-based methodology to the study of talents in successful builders and discovered 10 innate talents that highly successful builders possess: Confidence, Delegator, Determination, Disruptor, Independent, Knowledge, Profitability, Relationship, Risk, and Selling.

Knowing the 10 talents of highly successful builders formed the basis for creating an assessment that measures those talents in an individual. Gallup researchers studied thousands of adults and high school-aged students during the multiyear development and validation of the assessment.
