Overview

Do you enjoy being the center of attention? Are you more interested in facts and figures than in theories? Do you make to-do lists? Would you rather be truthful or tactful? Do you have a few close friends rather than a wide range of acquaintances? Are you more empathetic and compassionate than logical and rational?

These are just a few of the questions about yourself that you can answer with What Type Am I? Based on the classic personality test taken by millions annually, this book will help you to assess your individual preferences in four basic areas: how you relate to the world, take in information, make decisions, and manage your life. Now a family therapist explains this fascinating system in a way that is entertaining and easy to absorb. Renee Baron takes on the complexity of the sixteen personality types and makes them accessible, so you can comprehend them, find your own type, and use the knowledge to enrich your own life. Here is information about individual strengths and weaknesses along with suggestions for personal growth and awareness. Whether you are a duty seeker or an action seeker, a knowledge seeker or an ideal seeker, What Type Am I is insightful, helpful, encouraging, and an eminently useful step in helping you appreciate your strengths and apply them to work, love, and life.

This book, What Type Am I, by Renee Baron, was wonderful. It helps you to identify your personality. Having done that, it goes further to suggest, based upon your personality, what kind of job or career you would enjoy most and excel at. It also teaches you to understand other people based on their personality types so that you can better communicate with them. I think this is an overall good read for people to understand themselves and others and thus find their place in the world a lot easier.

What a cool, very easy to understand, book about personality types. You see why you may be one personality type by a Q and A test in the beginning, and by occuptions and idiosyncracies associated with each type in the body of the book. THIS IS A BOOK THAT IS VERY EASY TO APPLY IN REAL LIFE. Soon you will be to figure out in your head a possible personality type for relatives, friends, and acquaintances and will have much better time accepting and understanding them for who they are and how to associate with them. It's a lot of fun and each time you put the book down and get back to it you get something more out of it. Kind of like an 'incubation effect' for creative writing(Your experiences assist in the personal value of the book).
