5.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful! 7 Sep 2005
By A Life-long Learner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was recommended to me by my company's HR training manager and it is brilliant! Written for people who know their Myers-Briggs type, it describes the sort of work environment your type would thrive in along a continuum; meaning, it allows for a range of behavior and is flexible enough to avoid rigidly defining you and your options, yet it's defined enough to be helpful. I know that many people consider Myers-Briggs to be hocus-pocus, but if you found the typing to be insightful, you'll find the book to be doubly so. For someone who is job hunting -- or in my case, considering switching careers -- it really gave me a new perspective on how I work, and what works best for me, along with suggested fields and suggested positions in those fields. One caveat, this book isn't a job-hunters guide. It just helps you find your direction, and reminds you of your work preferences to guide you when you are considering a potential job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Career Book I've Read 5 April 2003
By A. Botnick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm 32 and in the midst of a career change which has involved extensive self assessment. Prior to reading this book I visited several career counselors, took the PAR Self Directed Assessment and Myers Briggs assessment and read numerous books on careers. This book really surprised me. At first I was skeptical but after going through it I was very impressed with the personality typing system and how well my personality type matched me. The only warning that I would have is that since the listing of the possible careers are in broad categories a person needs to spend some time learning about different careers by talking to people in them, researching and shadowing at the workplaces before jumping ahead. For example, I might be excellent as a dental researcher but hate the routine of the day to day practice of dentistry. However, this is a great book and I recommend it highly as a starting point in any career search.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not complete, but better than anything else 18 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is the best MBTI career book I've found. It has none of the breezey overproduced style of the Tieger books. Dunning conveys information in rational categories with a friendly manner. The reason I didn't give her book more stars is that Dunning (like all the other authors who use the MBTI approach) fails to help the reader to decide on a career because she merely lists compatible jobs at the end. Sure, they are grouped into "professional", "business", "Art and design", etc but what does "art and design" have to do with "business"? It makes more sense to group jobs into personality based catergories. It's also frustrating that the author does not go from a type's description to an analysis of that type and a particular job. Dunning does have lengthy anecdotes about representatives of each type but these stories are not enough. This failure to connect personality type to a job characterizes all the personality based career guides. This situation makes me believe they don't know much about careers or personality types. Please, someone write a real MBTI career counseling book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for those about to enter the workforce 29 April 2001
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In What's Your Type Of Career?: Unlock The Secrets Of Your Personality To Find Your Perfect Career Path, psychologist, adult learning specialist, and certified human resources professional Donna Dunning bases her invaluable advice and insights on the "Myers-Briggs Type Indicator" and offers easy-t-use worksheets to guide the reader in determining their specific personality type. Then Dunning goes on to provide in-depth, highly-relevant, jargon-free, "reader friendly" descriptions and explanations of the eight "Ways of Working" and explores the work preferences, strengths, areas for development, learning, teamwork, and leadership styles of each type. Practical suggestions are made regarding the types of work that attract each personality type and guide the reader to match their personality type with the appropriate career path. What's Your Type Of Career? is highly recommended for those about to enter the workforce for the first time, those who are re-entering the workforce after a sustained absence, and those wanting to improve their existing career prospects in this age of corporate globalization, downsizing, and technology driven worker mobility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review 3 April 2011
By Suzie Housley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The average person spends the majority of their time at work. Often, a person finds that they are unhappy in their chosen career field. They find that getting up each morning is one of their hardest struggles; for they know that they will have to go to a place they find little satisfaction.

Salvation now comes in the form of Donna Dunning's What's Your Type of Career: Find Your Perfect Career By Using Your Personality Type. Dunning's philosophy is based on the Jungian-based Myers-Briggs Type Indicator that features 16 different personality types. Through the easy to understand worksheets anyone can easily identify their personality type.

I was truly amazed at how accurate What's Your Type of Career: Find Your Perfect Career By Using Your Personality Type. In the past, I was required to take a course that identified my Myers-Brigg personality type. By using this book, I found that it was very accurate in determining that I was an INTJ.

With the knowledge that I knew my personality type I found career choices that I never considered exploring. For anyone who feels trapped in their current job, I highly recommend What's Your Type of Career: Find Your Perfect Career By Using Your Personality Type for it offers invaluable information that can help you find a career that you enjoy.
