Do What You Are: Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type
I adore this stuff. I want to like Myers-Briggs. All the four letter jumbles look and sound pretty much the tieget. Unlike enneagram, Myers-Briggs says who you are is set in stone, and can not ever be changed or altered. Change may be the reason I get a completely different result every time I take the Myers-Briggs. I think it’s because personality traits as determined by the MBTI are learnable skills. I was shy, but I learned to be social.
In Myers-Briggs, you are one or the other.
I think many if not most mentally healthy people are close to the middle of the spectrum. Being an emotionally healthy and mature adult means learning to balance empathy with logic, payl knowing when to focus on the big picture, and when to focus on the details, for example. And whom are you comparing yourself to? Another problem with this book, though it could be a feature rather than wha bug for some, is how in-depth it goes into the personality types.
Welcome to Personality Type!
The amount of detail is astounding, and shows great foresight and complexity of mind. Too bad the facts are all imaginary. This reminded me of when I was a kid and I’d read about the zodiac signs and they’d say “As a Taurus, your favorite color is pink and your lucky number is 5.
Some people might like the “this is who you are, so this is what you’re like” didacticism, but I think it’s limiting and wrong. Your four letter alphabet soup MBTI type is not who you are. It’s frustrating for the same reason why I get frustrated when my kids and their friends try something once and say “I’m good at this! Let’s put everyone into a box where they stay and then we don’t have to work to change or admit that people are complex.
Another reason why this book isn’t as useful as it could be is that there isn’t much of a way of being able to tell what a job is going to be like before you’re into it. When I was a kid, I thought that being an artist meant spending all day painting. Now that I know some artists, I know that it’s more like being a small-business owner, heavy on the marketing. Others travel months of the year, selling themselves at cons and readings. Same “job”, vastly different work. So even if this were wonderful and accurate about telling you who you were, it wouldn’t be helpful because you don’t really know what X profession does all day unless you either have X profession or can talk to someone who does.
And so many jobs are not one-word jobs anyway. Personally, I think instead of asking “do you like to work with facts, or with people” it’s more useful to ask “do you prefer to work on commission, or salary-based.
You should just know. If I felt that any of the information in this book was based on a system that had some kind of scientific validity, I might have had a different reaction to it.
As it is, it’s kind of like “zodiac guide to getting a one-word job you’re not qualified for and don’t know what it’s like anyway.
If you’re the kind of person who might read “the zodiac guide to relationships” or “the enneagram diet,” you’ll probably find this amusing in an “everyone likes to hear about themselves” kind of way.

It did the job of focusing me on 4 variations of my career that I will research for aee growth.

While this book uses the Myers Briggs framework for career analysis, it does not contain the official Myers Briggs test. It relies on self whwt. In the end, I narrowed my self evaluation to two of the possible 16 personality types. And that was sufficient to get to some tangible career options. But if you’re looking for real confirmation of what Myers Brigss type you are, this book might not provide it.
This book does explain well what a Myers Briggs personality type means and how you can use it to understand your natural preferences towards types of work and company cultures. I liked the explanation of dominant and auxiliary components of Myers Briggs. For example, an INFJ finds its “Intuitive” component dominant but uses that internally instead of externally. Mar 24, Gwen rated it it was amazing Recommended to Gwen by: Unsurprisingly, this book told me that I am an ISTJ introverted, sensing, thinking, judgingfor which that chapter’s subtitle is “take your time and do it right”–exactly my perspective on life.
Key takeaways for me: ISTJs use and remember facts is this why I can remember random–albeit useless–details? Orderly environments and rewarding task-orientation are work aspects ISTJs enjoy. Strengths include conscientiousness, desire to work hard, and ability to keep careful track of details. This book gently showed me my shortcomings but also gave me the tools to succeed.
I know that I have been incredibly lucky to find a job that fits me whaf well, and arre what all I need to look for and do to get another job gives me hope. I highly recommend this book for job seekers and people looking to derive greater satisfaction from their current job.
Tips are given to cope with present stresses in office life, helping your personality profile pauk with practical methods to help you achieve workplace success.

This should be a required course in the senior year in every high school and university in the world. I knew this book wouldn’t do much for me–I don’t like self-help books in the first place and I haven’t had much luck with the career guidance books I’ve read.
But I didn’t mind this one. I learned more about Myers-Briggs than I ever expected to which I’m not entirely sold on but which I found insightful just the sameand I read that as an INFJ I am preoccupied with the meaning of life.
