Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything
by Anne Bogel
If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world. But what we're finding is this: knowing which Harry Potter character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn't as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz.
For readers who long to dig deeper into what makes them uniquely them (and why that matters), popular blogger Anne Bogel has done the hard part--collecting, exploring, and explaining the most popular personality frameworks, such as Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, Enneagram, and others.
She explains to readers the life-changing insights that can be gained from each and shares specific, practical real-life applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. In her friendly, relatable style, Bogel shares engaging personal stories that show firsthand how understanding personality can revolutionize the way we live, love, work, and pray.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- I think of this author as someone who will tell it like it is and clearly line it out for you. I feel her book is sincere, real and very on point. The research must have been really extensive to be able to key in so precisely. I actually wanted to learn more about this author and check out her blog etc, because of the writing style and voice that she puts forth. This book when used correctly can be a life changer.
