Buy this book and save yourself from making mistakes on one of your most important decisions-career 9 July 2014
By Tina Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
OK so I maybe too old for doing this personality test but I've always known I'm in the wrong career field. In fact, I can't even call it a career- It's a job (grateful to have a job but still). Anyway, taking the test I now understand that my personality is polar opposite to my job. This doesn't mean I'm not capable of doing my job just that it takes more out of me than what I get back. I'm a square peg trying to fit in a round hole. Whether, I can change jobs this late in the game remains to be seen but I don't feel guilty about feeling this way anymore. I think anyone who is about to go off to college, feels unfulfilled at work, or just doesn't know what direction to go in would benefit from this book. I think I would have taken the advice and changed my major in college.

This is extremely helpful 28 Jun 2014
By Mo833 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had purchased this book years ago, but did not really read all the chapters. I just skipped to my type. I recently began working with a career counselor who recommended it so I bought the Kindle version. Now that I am really reading it I find it so helpful. I am older now and I am not so set in picking one type of career. This focuses on how I make decisions and where my strengths lie. It also has a section on how we change with age.

Phenomenal Resource 31 May 2014
By Karissa M. Feltman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is truly a phenomenal resource for those looking for a new career path (or just starting one). The MBTI has been shown to be an accurate personality test and I was thrilled to find a resource that tries to not only help you find a great job but help you get to know yourself and your preferences, talents, and skills better. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Myers-Briggs Types Relating to Career Search 27 Aug 2014
By L. M. Keefer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are interested in Myers-Briggs types and how they relate to career choice, this book is one of the best, if not the best, resource out there. I like to use it after individuals I work with have taken the pen and paper assessment in David Keirsey's book PLEASE UNDERSTAND ME II or online versions of Myers-Briggs assessments.

Features to like about this book:

* succinct background on the history and origins of Myers-Briggs

* comprehensive descriptions of the 16 types

* lists of careers which might suit the different types

* strengths and weaknesses of each type as it relates to careers

* explanation of the four functions and their hierarchy

* ten steps worksheets to create a personal career plan

This is a very helpful book for those already familiar with Myers-Briggs and want to know its link to careers. It's great for career counselors or individuals who want comprehensive understanding of Myers-Briggs. If you just want a quick overview, suggest you take the online Myers-Briggs assessments and read the information there. Then read this if you are wanting further background and more comprehensive information.

Good information 23 Jun 2014
By Nhi Le - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am certified in the MBTI and other personality inventories. I use this book as a starting off point with many clients who want a guided approach to figuring out what they want to do when they grow up. But this is only a tool to help you get started. Following through is what is most difficult and no book will be able to give you that. I really enjoy the examples and tips and would recommend it to people who are just unsure. But remember it's a catch all book and not designed for any one particular personality style.
