    This is a textbook to help determine the personality types of people with whom you'd interact. The objective: to understand the personality is to understand better ways to communicate. The authors are quick to admit that the pigeon-holing of people into 16 types doesn't work all the time, and if the reader's intent is to amuse friends with personality parlor games, he will be disappointed.

I came away with a few basics: 1. Rewriting the Golden Rule to read, "Do unto others as they would like done unto them." In other words, to be effective with others, you need to speak their language - to deliver your message in the way they want, and will hear it. Common sense, isn't it? 2. Recognize one's potential biases. It should be easy to communicate with people who are like ourselves, but if you're confronting someone who might be your opposite, try to maximize the similarities and minimize the differences between you. More common sense. 3. There are four keys to unlocking a personality: a) Understanding how people are energized - extrovert or introvert? b) The kind of information we naturally pay attention to: sensing what's there in front of us or using intuition? c)How we make decisions: thinking rationally or feeling? d) How we like to organize our world: judging (black and white) or perceiving (many shades of gray)? I have learned that I am for the most part an Introverted, Sensing, Feeling Judger, an "ISFJ" type. Yeah, I think that's true, except on Tuesdays when I'm an "ESOB" (an Extroverted SOB)! :-)

    This is the best Myers-Briggs personality book that I've found for understanding OTHERS better and learning to "speak their language" for clear communication and stronger relationships. For (1) understanding YOURSELF better and (2) using that knowledge in a practical way to break out of ruts, loops, and unhealthy patterns of thought and behavior, I recommend Personality Hacker: Harness the Power of Your Personality Type to Transform Your Work, Relationships, and Life.

    I did not expect this book to be as good as it was. It has everything to do with learning about the briggs/myers/ C.G. Jungian theories regarding personality type/traits, and how that whole system works. He has a way of putting it in laypersons terms, without it becoming "fluff," like the title would indicate it to be. Has a lot of good content, examples, well read and studied author here. Like I said, from the title, I would not have read it as anything more than a parlor game, but it's stout.! I did not expect this book to be as good as it was.

    This book was really interesting and helpful. I ate it up, slowly for greater retention. It's based on the premise that everyone has a type, out of the 16 Myers Briggs personality types, and that people can have difficulty relating to and communicating with people of other types. their solution is to teach you to recognize the cues for various types, so that you can identify the type of whomever you interact with, and then interact with them based on their type and yours.

They call that part SpeedReaching, and the recognition part SpeedReading. I find myself trying to figure out everyone I encounter now, and it really does help to understand why they do so many of the things they do. It's especially helpful in the workplace, learning how to communicate with boss and coworkers more effectively, in a way that each of them will understand better. I recommend this book to EVERYONE! :) as long as you can handle a little personality theory, you will get great use out of this book.

The comparative lack of reference to psychology literatures leaves me with the conclusion that this is a pop psychology book and not a serious contribution to science.

    This book was given to me as a gift because I'm nuts about Myers-Brigs typologies. If you think "typing" people's personalities is annoying/rotten/wrong/sinful/stupid/etc, this book is not for you. However, to me, it's proven useful in knowing how to frame my interactions with certain people in order to increases my chances of speaking in way that clicks with them. I'm such an ENFJ.

    **3.75 stars. I will continue to use this a resource for typology. I especially like the breakdown of types into the framework of Traditionalists, Experiencers, Conceptualizers, and Idealists. There are several places in the book that make sweeping generalizations that I don’t necessarily agree with, especially when it comes with extraverts and introverts, but overall, I think The Art of SpeedReading should be part of the stack of resources for typology enthusiasts.

    I really enjoyed this book's description of three different tools that are useful in understanding and communicating with others. I had already figured out 2 of the 3 tools, but it was helpful to have those validated and to be presented a 3rd tool which I had not yet considered. I have already begun to type people more quickly and accurately, especially those that beforehand I had trouble placing.

    Before reading this I only knew about introvert/extravert and nothing else about the other preferences (sensor/intuitive, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving). The book presents them in a very clear and understandable way. And now I feel like I have a very clear understanding of what the preferences are, when people are exhibiting them, and how to understand where they're coming from.

The book also goes into detail about the characteristics of each of the 16 possible profiles and groups them into four categories based on what they're like at the core. If you've never read much about the MBTI it's definitely worth reading (even if it's examples are very work focused).

    This is a wonderful book about personality types that really boils it down to basics. Besides telling you about your own MBTI type, this book teaches you how to tell what types *other* people are and gives you ideas for how best to communicate in their language. A very user friendly book that has made a real difference in how I understand people.

    My main point in reading this book was to learn more about myself. It does a great job of that! Spending time memorizing every little detail about every little type or combination isn't my bag though. I'm sure I soaked up some of it through osmosis, but I don't think I used the book for its intended purpose. I like to think it helped me a bit in understanding others.

I am not sure to what extent this book is scientific. Still, on the ground, it has worked well for me until now, and I have been able to understand some questions I had about other people's behavior or even mine, and now I have made progress in this regard thanks to this book. For example, I always had serious problems with people who made each statement into something personal and would often be offended by it. Well, now I know more about them! The lessons of the book certainly need the practice to be working fine in day-to-day life, though. I recommend making a summary while reading it. I recommend a shorter version of this book containing the more general points which can be remembered more easily to almost every one as I few things as important as communication with other human beings.

    An interesting take on Myers Briggs - As an N myself, I feel like it was written mostly by Ss for Ss, but it did give some good ideas for helping communication in the other direction. I think they missed the mark sometimes when it came to describing what an intuitive would think/do, and the process is described in such an S kind of way (pick up details about a person until they build up into a bigger picture about how you can communicate with them better), but I guess Ns probably think more abou An interesting take on Myers Briggs - As an N myself, I feel like it was written mostly by Ss for Ss, but it did give some good ideas for helping communication in the other direction.

    The book is based on "the Myers Briggs personality test". Basically you learn how to use the test on other people to understand someone's personality type, which will give you an idea of how to interact with them (because now you know what makes them tick) There are couple flaws with their method: 1. The test is not that accurate, so keep in mind that the methods can sometimes fail you. 2. The method is not fool proof, it's more likely to misread a person because you don't know them that well.

Over the years, there have been aspects of my temperament and personality that I've sought to correct.

    A bit of a slog to get through this--I'm highly skeptical of Myers-Briggs tests, but I wanted to know a bit about them. This book is ok, if you're into these things. It demands that you memorize all of the different types, their signs and suggested responses for communicating with them. As opposed to, say, being a good listener and developing empathy.

    It's a good book that describes the" 16 personalities", so simple and clean. The book mostly helped me to know myself better, but it also could help you to know others faster, I mean you would learn to categorize the people fast, in one of the "16 personalities" and that would give you a basic knowledge of what kind of person you're dealing with.

    Should have just been called 'All About The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator Personality Test'. Goes WAY too in depth about the 4 letter types and combinations for my tastes, far past the point of common sense and actual practical use.

    It’s a good book but I feel like it (although it clarifies this not to be the case) tried to group people into categories. It is a guide I know but I felt like it was good as a basic way to learn to interact with people who are different from you but otherwise too cold of an approach to life in general.
