Not for me. This is a memoirish overview of personality typing. And it‘s not done very well.
I thought this would be fun for all you #santagoespostalstalkers out there: book picks, What Should I Read Next style. Three books you love, one book you don‘t. I‘ll leave mine & my reasons in the comments, along with some other picks that, in my mind, have the same vibe to them, cause a book nerd can‘t stick to just one pick. 🤓 Play along if you‘d like.
This was interesting but I couldn‘t quite love it. It discusses most of the more prominent personality frameworks; the tests, the ideas behind them, and how to work within them to be your best self. I had read most of the books she explores so it was really repetitive for me. But, if the idea of personality and its affect of behavior is new to you, this may be a great book to check out!
I tried really hard to love this book. But it was a little too dry for my tastes. Informative. But I felt like there was too much information for me. I think if you are really into personalities and personality tests then this is the book for you. If you have a slight interest then you might be overwhelmed like I am right now
Dinner and a book! Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup is perfect on a cold night 😄 #dinnerandabook
In Houston for a volleyball tournament, getting a few pages in before my daughter starts playing.
Holiday book haul! I immediately started Becoming, can‘t wait to read them all! #bookblessed
I have always enjoyed learning about how people tick. This introduced me to some new resources. This is the kind of book to refer back to over time. Glad I bought it.
⭐️⭐️⭐️: I love Anne Bogel so picked this one up. I‘m not quite as obsessed with personality typing as Anne proclaims to be but this made for an interesting high level overview. #NonFiction
I love the way this author breaks down personality typing. She presents a few different styles, like Myers Briggs and explains how they work and how they can help you. She encourages people to use personality typing to learn their strengths and weaknesses and name changes.
I really enjoy following Anne Bogel on social media, so I figured I would like this book, but I didn‘t realize that it would help me to understand myself. That alone makes it worth five stars in my book. Turned out I‘m a highly sensitive person, not just an easily annoyed one. Who knew?! Any book that helps me learn more about myself and others in a way that will make our lives better is worth the read.
I love when I learn something new about myself from a book. This book did that for me. ❤️
One of my favorite @unabridgedpod episodes EVER dropped yesterday—we talk about these two great books by #annebogel of #whatshouldireadnext and #modernmrsdarcy fame. We had SO much fun exploring our personality quirks and thinking about the impact of reading and books on our lives (not that we don‘t do that a lot anyway!).
Yes, this about says it all! Totally agree! 💓
This book was fascinating! It had a bit more of a Christian bent than I expected but otherwise, I really enjoyed it!
I looked up from my book and saw this... Someone else reading... 😍😍 I always ask myself, what the other person is reading. ☺️ #readingpeople
I‘m so happy to have discovered the amazing Anne Bogel. (Thank you@BookaholicNatty!). Her podcast is now my favorite and this book was an insightful, intelligent read.
A good introduction to personality testing.

I didn‘t think I was interested in learning about personality — or reading this book — despite being a fan of Anne‘s podcast. I don‘t really know what changed my mind, but I‘m glad I did! The audiobook is great, but I‘m glad I also have the print book to refer to. Lots of footnotes and recommended resources listed — and the MBTI chapter was a bit too complex for just listening. I have lots more to explore now I‘ve had this introduction. #readathon
Hi all, in a reading slump where my mind feels out to lunch. Looking for a meaty deep fiction that is low on tropes written in the last five years, Any recommendations?
Within the past 6 months I've gotten into podcasts and Anne's podcast "What Should I Read Next" is one of my faves. When I heard she was writing a book on personality frameworks I knew I'd have to read it, definitely not disappointed. She outlines several frameworks and how she's included them in her life.
I‘m in love with the bookish podcast WHAT SHOULD I READ NEXT, in which the guests tell Anne three books they loved, one book they hated, and what they‘re reading now and receive three book recommendations. Anna is also the author of the tagged book on personality, which I‘m checking out based on how much I love her show. Check out the podcasts, littens - you‘ll absolutely adore it.
Oh Bookish Buzz, you get me! (Found on FB through Bookish Buzz‘s feed)
Does anyone belong to the Modern Mrs Darcy book club? Thoughts on it?
I‘ve had my eye on this copy of Anne of Green Gables for awhile. And this edition of Wuthering Heights contains a few illustrations. I need more time.
So excited to read this by one of my favorite bloggers, the Modern Mrs. Darcy!!
If I haven't subscribed to too many challenges already, I've just signed up for Modern Mrs Darcy as well! 😂

Pretty cute book. Enjoyed the audio version in small chunks.
Definitely for those more inclined towards personalities.
After a busy Sunday, I am settling down with this book. I wonder if @annebogel comes here often?

I'm sorry to see the end of this challenge since these things always make me post more. I'll have to play catch-up! 😃

Not sure how I feel about this- an entire book on different personality tests is tiring and not that interesting.
What did I learn about my personality after reading Reading People? That I hate learning about personalities. (#sorrynotsorry #unpopularopinion) I wanted to love this one, but I honestly think it‘s more about me than the book. I think I‘ve finally realized that I‘m not all that fascinated with personality assessment. People who are will find this to be a great resource to add to their research and library!
I am not interested in boggling my mind with all the convoluted facts. So, when I saw the opportunity to read this book and have everything explained to me in the clear, concise and, may I say, soothing voice (as in the case of the audiobook) of Anne Bogel I jumped at the chance. Reading People made me a little more accepting of things that other people do. After all, the world would be pretty boring if we were all me!
I have always loved personality quizzes and reading books about the explanations regarding our reactions to situations. This book delves into several personality typing theories. I was familiar with most of the theories discussed in the book but it explains the concepts in more detail than any online resource. She also provides resources for future in depth study.
This book is a great summary of some popular personality tools to help you get started. It helped me figure out my MBTI. Enjoyable read.
