Overview

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used psychological indicator in the world. Millions of people take the test annually. Now a family therapist explains this fascinating system of ideas to the public in a way that is entertaining and easy to absorb. Based on the work of Carl Jung, the MBTI is a system that discusses people's individual preferences on four basic scales: how they relate to the world, take in information, make decisions, and manage their lives. Renee Baron takes on the complexity of the sixteen personality types and makes them accessible so the general reader can comprehend them, find their own type, and use the knowledge to enrich their own lives. She presents information about individual strengths and weaknesses along with suggestions for personal growth and awareness. Insightful, helpful, and encouraging, What Type Am I? is the only user-friendly guide to the MBTI — and an eminently useful step in helping individuals appreciate, and apply their strength, to work, love, and life.

    Get to know yourself and others better.

    This book, What Type Am I, by Renee Baron, was wonderful. It helps you to identify your personality. Having done that, it goes further to suggest, based upon your personality, what kind of job or career you would enjoy most and excel at. It also teaches you to understand other people based on their personality types so that you can better communicate with them. I think this is an overall good read for people to understand themselves and others and thus find their place in the world a lot easier.

    It's in the same class as SeinLanguage by Jerry Seinfeld and Ask Marilyn by Marilyn vos Savant

    What a cool, very easy to understand, book about personality types. You see why you may be one personality type by a Q and A test in the beginning, and by occuptions and idiosyncracies associated with each type in the body of the book. THIS IS A BOOK THAT IS VERY EASY TO APPLY IN REAL LIFE. Soon you will be to figure out in your head a possible personality type for relatives, friends, and acquaintances and will have much better time accepting and understanding them for who they are and how to associate with them. It's a lot of fun and each time you put the book down and get back to it you get something more out of it. Kind of like an 'incubation effect' for creative writing(Your experiences assist in the personal value of the book).
