Disappointing.

The author attempts to distill the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator down to twelve questions and prescribes four different "brain colors" (personality types) based on responses.

Upon reading that yellow-brainers (for the record, I'm not a yellow-brainer) "choose careers as CEOs," I was out. Suitable for a workshop, perhaps, but pop psychology nonetheless.

I'm not going to rate it because I've been handing out too many one-star reviews lately and it's making me feel guilty in that distinc

Easy to read. Dimensions of the brain colours were plainly laid out. By the end of the book I hard a clear sense of what brain colour I was and also what were the likely colours of close family, friends and associates.

This book is full of interesting information. Identifying the color of mine and my husband's brains was intriguing. It actually did make me go, "Hmmm. That explains why he does this and I do that."

I thought the information could have been tied together a little better. There was also an entire chapter that explained how brain color can influence relationships with children, but it gave no guidance about how to discover a child's brain color.

Over all very interesting. I think I will read it agai

As the title says, this is a fun approach to understanding yourself and others. =) Although it is loosely based on the Myers Briggs personality test, I wouldn't necessarily call it a scientific personality test. Still, it's fun to read and it's always nice to have words and a framework with which to help remind us how to best interact with one another.

This is a simpler version of the Myers /Briggs, or Kiersey?, personality types. For those that don't like to read details, this would be more for you with lots of charts and diagrams and simpler language. I preferred Please Understand Me 2

As written on the back cover of the book, it is a fun read. I enjoyed reading it a lot and chuckled a few times. Can't say the approach the author used is very sceienctific but it doensn't mean it wasn't helpful and enlightining.
