Book Description

June 2008 1855755076 978-1855755079
How you write—what works for you and what makes sense to you—depends on who you are, your personality, your preferences, your style of thinking and feeling. If you are extroverted and grounded in your senses, your natural writing style will be far different from the person who tends to be introverted and intuitive. Not only that, how you learn to write will be different as well. Here is a book that taps into the natural strengths of your personality and helps you use those strengths in your writing. Whether you are a student, businessperson, or professional writer, this book will help you: engage your natural writing voice; adapt to styles that are less natural; overcome writer's block; find the right words for communicating effectively, whatever your assignment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book on writing September 4, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book on writing. It takes personality into consideration. Since people are all individual, it makes sense that people's personalities enter into how they work and write. This uses the Myers-Briggs personality types to determine your personality type and how you work and write. The results are right on!
