This book was highly recommended to me by a senior manager who was a huge fan of Myers Briggs, in particular to be successful in business. He himself was a very successful salesman (so by extension is good with people in a certain kind of way), so I figured it would be worthwhile to check it out.

I found the book intellectually interesting, but not actionable. Going through it I actually went around to colleagues to ask them for their MB types (I believe I was ENTJ). I wrote those types down. I r...more
Required reading for a class. Didn't read the entire book, but got a bit of good info. Had enough of it when it essentially said that my Perceiving personality would never be as great as I aspire because Judgers rule. And to essentially get used to it.
This was amazingly insightful into different personality types. I found the description of "me" as an ISTJ to be 90% accurate and my workgroup peers seemed to feel their type also accurately described them. The best part is learning how to better interact with other personality types. Too bad this isn't required reading when we are younger so we can apply the lessons before we've butted heads, burned bridges, and irritated others...repeatedly.

If you're a fan of the MBTI (Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator) and want to know how those types manifest in the modern workplace, give this book a try. The back part of the book is organized like a reference, so you can just look up certain types at yoru leisure. I use this in my job a Human Resources professional and usually have the managers and supervisors I work with read it.

I love myers Briggs, and this book is good for understanding work types, i found myself disagreeing with many if the gender roles and found them to be distracting. This is my only complaint. Otherwise a very good book!
Very useful for getting to know yourself better and
understanding your role at work and the why of your
work relationships.

Recommends it for: just plain curious
What can I say? I'm a career counselor. It's an interesting book. Enough said. Ask to borrow it from me. It's sitting on my shelves at home.
Incorporating the Myers-Briggs test, I'm sure this book will be a fascinating read for my managerial communications class.
I attended a class for the Myer Briggs Personality and received this book. I am hoping to start reading it over the weekend.

Recommends it for: anyone with the desire to understand other people better
A variation of "Type Talk" focused on the workplace. I prefer the original "Type Talk", but this did have a few added insights.
Very helpful if you are comfortable with MBTI and want to dig in deeper to understand how to better relate to your coworkers.
Great resource book to increase your knowledge of yourself and others by learning about Myers-Briggs personality types!
I learned so much about myself, how I think, what sets me apart from others and how I can understand others better!
Great insights on how different personality preferences work together and react to certain stimuli. Very helpful read.
