One of the main strengths that the narrator possesses is that of his rational ability to think through each situation that he finds himself in. As the inquisitors continually try and find new ways to drive him mad and force him into the pit, he devises ways of understanding and coping with each situation, including getting the rats to knaw through his bonds to free him from the table and death from the pendulum.
His strength also lies in some ways in the fact that he is confident in his innocence, that he does not deserve to suffer at the hands of these men.
