This book is for people just want to understand people and themselves better, simply. It is an excellent book on the topic in general and I have highly recommended it to my friends. - Reader
Personally I identify as an extrovert but still found plenty of helpful tips in thebook because it's not so much a book about differences, it's a book about people, and I easily recognized myself in quite a few of the chapters. I always appreciate when authors take the time to do their research and cite relevant studies that give weight to their words and that is what I have found from Hollins' book.
He gives a thorough overview of the types, and how to manage life better in just about every respect. Love and romance was an especially interesting read. In any case 5 stars. - Reader

If you haven't taken a look at the look inside preview, here is a rundown of the contents of the book:
Chapters 1-3: How each personality type functions and thinks
Chapters 4-6: The roots of the differences that lead to different personality types
Chapters 7-11: How different personality types play out their lives in different ways, like happiness, romance, career, etc.
Chapter 12: A helpful guide for introverts
I can't remember the last time I read summaries of so many scientific studies, probably not since graduate school. But this wasn't boring in the least, as they were all highly specific in making a point or educating. It wasn't a dry recitation of facts, it was a free flowing discussion that integrated science as the backdrop.
Overall I would recommend this book if you have even a passing interest in personality types. I suppose that could extend to horoscopes, astrology; anything that causes you to be interested in why people act the way they do. At least, that's what I got out of it. Thanks.
This is just such a great primer on the subject because it is so wide ranging. It doesn't just talk about how introverts don't like parties or other truisms, it talks about the biological reasons why, what to do about it, what to do instead, and even how they can change themselves.
The last chapter is especially valuable for an action plan for introverts to be more social in the way that they can tolerate. If you like psychology, science, learning about yourself, and useful tips, this book is for you.
Welp, seems about right to me! Which basically means I pretty much agree with everything because I have seen it with my own eyes and felt it. I've felt in the middle of the spectrum, and I have also known the feelings on the extremes of intro and extroversion. My personality has shifted a bit since I have grown older, for good reason.
This book is for people just want to understand people and themselves better, simply. It is an excellent book on the topic in general and I have highly recommended it to my friends.
The book is nothing but basic information repeating itself, flawed case studies, and contradictions. It really is a great example of what makes a lot of people not like social sciences.
Don’t waste your money.
