Do What You Are does not profess to get you into your dream job, nor does it tell you you can do something you clearly can't. It is a guide, and sticks firmly to the principles of the medium.

What DWTA does do is provide an interesting insight into the psychology of the jobs search; it's aim is to categorise the reader into one of 16 'types' with the intention of narrowing down your possible strengths and weaknesses. Knowing this, according to the authors, will aid you in conducting a thorough and focused careers search; it will also help you find work that suits your abilities, desires, and disposition. The ultimate goal is not necessarily to earn lots of green paper, but to find happiness and fulfilment in the work you do, a refreshing objective (especially in the dire job market at present).

Personally, I have yet to find my 'dream career', but this book has helped me enjoy my current employment a little more. It has also given me some helpful advice and, fundamentally, focus. I would certainly read this if you are fresh out of university / college and don't have a clue where you're heading next...

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.

very interesting and insightful book. helped me understand some of my character traits which I'd never before considered
quite easy to use (although on occasion it was hard to decide on which trait characterizes me best
overall I definately recommend it to those who are somewhat lost in their careers or seek professional satisfaction

Do what you are does not do what I expected it to do. There are no secrets in personality type. Save your money and google search the topic. There is just as much freely available information out there.

Wish I had read this many years ago. Without even finishing the book I am starting to make important changes in my life through recognising my strengths.
