There is a strength called Input. It comes from the Gallup Strengths Assessment called StrengthsFinder 2.0.
Input is the way someone learns and uses knowledge and information. People who are strong in input collect information and call it up when they need it. Input people enjoy learning in order to use the information. They will read enough to get the idea and store it away, as opposed to learners who are fascinated with the process of learning and will delve into things deeply.
Input is a strength because input people tend to make interesting and novel connections between seemingly disparate pieces of information.
I know this strength well because it is one of my top strengths. I find that a lot of my clients have this strength as well.
