If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world. But what we're finding is this: knowing which Harry Potter character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn't as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz. For readers who long to dig deeper into what makes them uniquely them (and why that matters), popular blogger Anne Bogel has done the hard part--collecting, exploring, and explaining the most popular personality frameworks, such as Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, Enneagram, and others. She explains to readers the life-changing insights that can be gained from each and shares specific, practical real-life applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. In her friendly, relatable style, Bogel shares engaging personal stories that show firsthand how understanding personality can revolutionize the way we live, love, work, and pray.

Reading People is like sitting at Anne Bogel's kitchen table, having a cup of coffee and chatting about figuring out who you really are. Reading People is Bogel's personal journey with seven creditable personality types and their assessments. Not only does she share her experience finding legit assessments and resources for reliable results, but she shares her struggles in misclassifying herself. She gives a source of empathy that it can be hard to separate your natural tendencies with learned behavior and what culture pushes you to be. On top of that she shares how these improved her marriage or career or parenting... As a bonus, she includes more resources that take the next step to help you develop your natural potential - or even beyond it.
