5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Aug. 26 2007
Format:Paperback
Choosing a career based on personality type is not a new concept; in fact, the first edition of DO WHAT YOU ARE was released in 1992 (and I can actually remember reading it when I was a junior in high school). In this, the fourth edition, hopefully even more teens will be exposed to this great resource.

The authors, both experts in personality type and career development, put forth the idea that choosing a career path based on your individual personality will be beneficial to your success. For those worried that discovering your personality type is a difficult process, don't despair, because the authors make it quite easy.

There are four dimensions to personality type:

Whether you are extroverted or introverted.
Whether you notice things by sensing or intuition.
Whether you make decisions by thinking or feeling.
Whether you prefer to live by judging or perceiving.

Once you've discovered the answer to each of these four questions, you'll be able to discover which of the sixteen possible personality types you fall into. Once you do, you can quickly skip to the relevant section in the book.

In my case, my personality is ESTJ - or extroverted, sensing, thinking, judging. According to the authors of DO WHAT YOU ARE, my strengths lie in organization, being objective, working alone, and being a good decision maker. My weaknesses are also outlined, and include impatience with those who don't follow procedures, a tendency to overrun people, and difficulty listening to opposing viewpoints. Some suggestions for careers, based on my personality type, are as a teacher, government employee, sales, supervisor, or a manager.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful guide for highschool counsellors Oct. 5 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book arrived on time. I have used this book for many years as a high school counsellor and it has been invaluable. I have tried using other M-B guides but this one is very simple and straightforward. There is ample opportunity to double check on the personality type and the suggested career areas fit in very well with the personality type. I have been doing M-B tests with my students for 32 years and started using this about 15 years ago. It works really well for about 50% of students, reasonably well for about 25% and not at all for about 25%. This is much better than any other M-B based system that I have used.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Most Recommended Book over my life April 30 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I discovered this book late in my Engineering Executive career. I had experienced most personality types through life's experiences. This book put it all into perspective. With peoples' 16 personality types explained along with their advantages and disadvantages and best fits, it gave me a much better understanding and a new set of tools to fit peoples' strengths and weaknesses into much more coherent teams. And job satisfaction and results soared.

This book remains THE one book I recommend to myself, my kids, and my nieces and nephews. If they're reluctant to read it, direct them to the 10 minute personality test and turn the page to their personality chapter. They're sure to be amazed and comforted by knowing that there's 15 other types all around them, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. And no one can be everything. I believe they need to hear that more today than ever before!

The aunts and uncles also learn something. Hard to imagine a more informed and tolerant set of siblings and in-laws though.
