Format: Paperback
This book is well written, fun, and a great source of ideas if you already know your Myers-Briggs type. If you don't, the section on identifying your type is weak; I recommend Kiersey's "Please Understand Me" instead (or inquire at your local educational institutions: I took the Myers-Briggs, had it professionally interpreted, and got loads of helpful reference material from a $40 seminar at a community college).
The book is most useful if you're discontented with your present career (or have qualms about the career you're preparing for, if you're a student). I was railroaded into a career that didn't suit me because of my family's expectations, although I was determined and intelligent enough to become moderately good at it. But I never felt comfortable with it, and it was only after many unhappy years that I realized I was in the wrong job and broke away to find a more congenial career path. I wish this book had existed 30 years ago!
I agree with other readers that the book is short on practical guidance as to WHICH career you should choose -- I've found Barbara Sher's books much more helpful. Nonetheless, this is a good place to start, at a reasonable price, and it's excellent as far as it goes.

Have you ever wondered why many people act differently at work than
they do at home? They usually reply when asked, "It's only my game
face. I'm not really the person I portray at work." Instead, wouldn't
you like your job to "adjust" to you? By reading "Do What You Are,"
anyone can achieve this goal. Paul D. Tieger & Barbara Barron-Tieger
take their readers on a journey to meet face-to-face with their homunculus.
Please note, LSD is not required for this trip. :-)

They provide each reader with a way of analyzing his or her personality
without much of the technical jargon one receives while lying on a doctor's
couch. However, they take the time to thoroughly explain personality
characteristics and how those characteristics, in specific combinations,
define each personality type. Note: Anyone who has ever taken a
Myers-Briggs exam will feel right at home with this book. They give new
meaning to the word "maturity" by talking about the development path
each of us takes as we move through life. Because of the accuracy of
each of the personality type sections, I find them to be the most exciting.
Everyone I asked to read this book, myself included, quickly identified
with a personality type and found that they had worked in (or have
contemplated) a job in one of the careers listed with their respective
personality type.

After reading this book, you should have no problem in finding a job that matches
"who you are." Overall, this book is not a panacea for preventing you from
being downsized or developing an ulcer from your job stresses.

Do What You Are is a well prepared book that anyone in search of a well-fit career should read. It was extremely understandable, and not only explained why personality type is so important in a job search, but also let you figure out your own type, and find the perfect place in the job world. It gives job listings, per personality type, and let's you use your own interests to figure out what career might suit you best. Very Very recommended for not only understanding the people around you, but also for understanding WHY a job is satisfying and how to know what job would satisfy you most!

I picked this book up in America a year or so ago and it was the first Myers Briggs book I had read.
I found it enjoyable to read and a relief to find that there are apparently other people out there like me - though not very many according to the percentages in the book - no wonder I haven't bumped into many!
I also found it helped me to understand why I had made some of my choices and why they had not been very good ones to make. Almost as importantly, it has enabled me to understand a little better my colleagues with completely different personalities. No mean feat, believe me!

I think books should contribute to advance the body of knowledge instead of just using other people's previous hard work (in this case Isabel Myers-Briggs), rephrase everything and put an attractive label on it in order to sell it. Unfortunately, today some writers worry less about making contributions than making money. If you really want to learn about different personality types, I strongly recommend "Gift Differing", the work of Isabel Myers-Briggs, an INFP woman who genuinely spent her life researching this subject. Her book DOES cover career choices.

This easy-to-read book is very useful to both young adults and seasoned workers. It focuses on the heart of a career--doing what you love and what feels natural. It is only under these circumstances that one can be excited about the work they do and do it well. Even skeptics of psychology and personality typing will learn to appreciate this other dimension to career satisfaction that has been largely ignored. You will find that you better understand yourself, your needs, your interests, and ultimately what will probably make you happy. At the very least it makes you appreciate that every person is different and their career choices are too. It gives hope to those who are in a dead-end career and don't know what will make them happy.
