This book starts off by having you define yourself in three broad categories - extroverted/introverted, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, judging/perceiving - then it discusses the characteristcs of each combination of those traits and what jobs those types of people would be good at and enjoy.

People looking for potential careers would benefit from this, but there is also some interesting self reflection that can come as a result of defining oneself in their terms.

I mainly used this book as a reference. It just told me or I guess reinforced what I already knew in my about my life. I am in my mid twenties and I am in a job that I like but I dream for more.

Do What You Are helps you identify your personality type then shows a few more exercises to make sure you got it correct and then tells you what your ideal career choices would be. It then helps you to make a practical approach to the career of your choice.

Honestly, it's nice to have as an library book but I am so glad I didn't buy it. If you are aimless, this book will be perfect for you. However, if you know or have a clear picture of what you want to do then Do What You Are is nothing but a mirror. I have plenty of mirrors. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316880655, Paperback)

This guide analyzes personality type by looking at how an individual processes information, makes decisions and interacts with the world around them, and shows which of the 16 "types" describes that person best. It then lists dozens of occupations that are popular with people of each type and, using workbook exercises and real-life examples to highlight the strengths and pitfalls of each personality type, gives step-by-step instructions on how to use your unique strengths to customize your job search, ensuring the best results in the shortest period of time. If you plan to stay in your job, "Do What You Are" provides savvy advice for getting the most out of your current career. Rather than offering generic, one-size-fits-all advice, this book aims to help you determine what you need to be more successful and satisfied.
