Reading this book makes you feel like you were doing a psychology test, but with a different approach. It is very interesting. Well, who doesn't want to understand better about who we are and how the way we are thinking? i haven't read the first edition of Kokology, but i think it won't give you any effects since each book has different questions:)

This book helps us to understand our characters better with intriguing questions, then we have to answer those questions directly. After that, we can

Results are pretty accurate like 100% saying "Yes, this is me." But, there are times that I do not agree with the results or maybe I just haven't discovered and keep asking myself "Is this really me?". After all, this book help for self-discovery in fun and interesting way. Best way for getting to know you or your friends.

Kokology sehe ich eher als ein Spiel, welches man mit Freunden spielt und weniger als wirkliches Abtauchen in die Tiefen der Seele. Bei uns kommen die Kokology Bücher jedenfalls immer ins Spiel, wenn man mit Freunden zusammensitzt und Spaß haben will. Die Stimmung ist ausgelassen und keiner nimmt es zu ernst.
Gerade für den fröhlichen Abend ist dieses Buch sehr amüsant. Es geht weniger um die Erforschung von Freundschaften, Karriere und Geld. Bei diesem Band ist es alles andere als ausgewogen un

very informative psychology book. it's a series of psychological games on topics ranging from attitudes about family, friendship, love, finance, work, etc. it usually starts with an intro on the question or a bit of a test and followed by a set of defined answers. you will also be required to draw or write on the book itself or a piece of paper. then comes the revelation of what each answer meant. sometimes, the explanation matches what you believe in or what you want to believe with your self w ...more

One of my friends told me that I'm a control freak, but of a different kind. I don't want or need to control other people, but I am extremely aware and deliberate with my personal choices: I control myself.

This book simply made me realize how self-assured I was as a person. For the most part, the answers I made were consistent with my perspectives, beliefs, and personality. While that makes me unusual, I have never regretted being myself.

This has got to be one of the most engaging reads I've done this year. From the time I borrowed it, I was reading it in the train, bus, on the road, on my bed, following a short interval of sleep, on my couch till I finished it. I haven't read something so exciting as this in years!
I will probably get Kokology 1, and hope to read other works like this.

Buku ini isinya semacam cerita, terus di akhir cerita itu ada pertanyaan dan kita akan diceri 4 opsi pilihan, manakah yang paling mencerminkan diri kita sebenarnya. asik sih..kalo dimainkan rame2, kalo sendiri..bosen juga. Palagi ternyata jawaban dari pilihan kita (menurut gw) ga gitu sesuai dengan diri gw.

The book is like a *tell me what your answer is, and I'll tell you who you are*. I tried answering everything but whenever I get the meaning of my answer, it is too far from the reality. Given that this is just a test anyway, I will recommend it for past time or games in school under personality development and so.

Kokology 2 ga banyak beda (dan ga kalah amazingnya) dgn kokology 1. Masih menawarkan konsep psikologi dengan ketidaksadaran. I like this book karena ga mudah menemukan buku yg bisa lo ajak "maen-maen" selagi membicarakan hal yg sebenernya bisa mengungkap kyk gimana kepribadian loe.

This and Kokology Part 1, are my most treasured books EVER. Bought them both for my 15th birthday and I bring them to gatherings when I feel like bonding with people. The first books I'll save if ever my bookshelf is burning. :))

"saya kira buku ini berisi sekumpulan permainan-permainan menarik yg bisa di uji cobakan pada suatu kelompok..
ternyata lebih menarik yg saya duga..jawaban-jawaban anda atas tiap soal permainan mencirikan kepribadian anda..bahkan sudut pandang anda terhadap suatu hal!!"

It's a good book. I really enjoyed it while I played it myself and with my sisters and my friends. It helped me learn more about myself and about other people whom I played it with. Although some of the keys weren't necessarily true, I found some really good insights.

When I saw Kokology 2 at the bookstore, I literally jumped out because of sheer joy! The first book is not enough. :))

Kokology is an interesting way of knowing or a queer way of being aware of what your personality is. ;)

Buku menarik berisi kuis psikologi, dengan penjelasan jawaban yg mencengangkan krna sering seolah bisa membaca karakter kita. Yang mencengangkan krna hubungan antara pilihan jawaban dengan penjelasannya entah bgmn hubungannya. Bagus dibaca bersama orang terdekat, atau berkelompok, jdi seru deh !

I think these kind of psychological question is always interesting. We are unconsciously driven to give answer to these question which reflect our own personality. Which is really good tools to make us understand more about ourselves.

Shame I haven't read one yet.

Being an avid fan of psychology, it was interesting how I got my results. Astonished, and excited for each one of my personality revelations.

Mencerahkan, menarik, seru, dan mengungkapkan sisi yang belum tereksplorasi dalam diri. Cocok dimainkan bersama teman.

Good stuff, however, since I knew the format of these self-tests (if you will), I was a bit more prepared for what to expect. Still a lot of fun to share with friends and family, nonetheless.

Some of the answers were spot on when it came to describing me. Some of them didn't even come close to fitting me.

Also, why does this book hate women with red nails, red lipstick or red hair?

Kokology 2 same as Kokology one all I can say is "Amazing" in a way that it helps you realized your habits and it helps you to realized your behavior.
Such an amazing and unique book

just like the previous volume, i find it equally surprising :) almost (if not all) the results i got really does describe me or match my personality.

this is a fun game of projective questioning. you answer seemingly innocent questions only to discover the hidden symbolic meanings... very fun!
