First, it’s important for me to say that I LOVE ANNE BOGEL. I listen to her podcast What Should I Read Next? every week religiously, and I look forward to her recommendations and her way of weaving threads that connect every reader’s interests. So – I can’t think of much that she could do that I wouldn’t love.
That said, this book is not something I would normally pick up – I only read it because of Anne’s name. I really enjoyed it, and I feel like I learned a lot about myself and so much about the personality frameworks that she explores, which are:
• Introversion / Extroversion
• High Sensitivity
• Chapman’s Five Love Languages
• Keirsey’s Temperaments
• Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
• MBTI Cognitive Functions
• Clifton StrengthsFinder
I had taken most of these in the past, with the exception of the Enneagram, which I found to be really helpful. It was great to have a guide through these tests and someone to help draw connections between them. I’m glad I took the time to read the book and to reflect on my own personality and I’ve started to think through how helpful it can be to understand my personality and the personalities of those closest to me.
