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.Read more ›
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.
