From his website:
Servers will take on tasks wholehearted and stick to it until it is done, even if it means personal sacrifice. They tend be aware of others’ preferences and remember details well. They prefer projects where they can see immediate results. Reassurance and recognition are important motivators for servers. They are doers, self-starters, dependable and can work alone very well. Martha in the Gospels was a server.
Prophetic gifted believers operate with a balance between hearing from God and a sense of righteousness. They embrace biblical truths and proactively seek to discern what the Holy Spirit is saying. When they KNOW they have heard from God, they will act; and need to discern between first stages of hearing and the “full counsel” needed to act upon. When this gift is mature, there will be a confidence that knows when to speak the Word of the Lord versus when to pray. Words given by prophetic people carry authority and result.
Givers are ones who sense God’s heart where needs are concerned. Combined with their other gifts, Givers break the mold of the status quo. They tend toward being creative or leaders and sometimes both; which ties into their response to fixing situations that are due to the lack of resource. Givers can be very effective entrepreneurs. In many instances, they will take great joy in giving without the need for credit. Yet in others, simple appreciation is important to them.
