If the viral personality quizzes strewn about our social media accounts are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique places in the world. But what we're finding is this: knowing which famous movie character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn't as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz. Backed by extensive research and illustrated with engaging stories, Reading People explains what make you uniquely you, what makes the people in your life uniquely them, and why it all matters. Popular blogger Anne Bogel makes it easy. In this fascinating book, she collects, explores, and explains the most popular personality frameworks, such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, StrengthsFinder, Enneagram, and others. She shares the life-changing insights that can be gained from each, along with practical applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. Want to revolutionize the way you live, love, work, and pray? Understanding personality is the first step!--COVER.

This is great for those who are interested in personality typing, but don’t want to get too technical about it. This book lays out the foundational principles of personality typing in a way that is very easy to understand.

If you want to get a basic overview of personality types and where to look to dig deeper, this is a good book with which to start.

Reading People is like sitting at Anne Bogel's kitchen table, having a cup of coffee and chatting about figuring out who you really are. Reading People is Bogel's personal journey with seven creditable personality types and their assessments. Not only does she share her experience finding legit assessments and resources for reliable results, but she shares her struggles in misclassifying herself. She gives a source of empathy that it can be hard to separate your natural tendencies with learned behavior and what culture pushes you to be. On top of that she shares how these improved her marriage or career or parenting... As a bonus, she includes more resources that take the next step to help you develop your natural potential - or even beyond it.
