Do What you Are - the time-honored classic that has already helped more than a million people find truly satisfying work - is now updated to include jobs in today's hottest markets, including health services, education, and communications technology.
With the global economy's ups and downs, the advent of astonishing new technology, the migration to online work and study, and the ascendancy of mobile communication, so much has changed in the American workplace since this book's fourth edition was published in 2007. What hasn't changed is the power of personality type to help people achieve job satisfaction.
This fifth edition is especially useful for millennials and for baby boomers experiencing midlife career switches. The book leads listeners step-by-step through the process of determining and verifying personality type. Then it identifies occupations that are popular with each type, provides helpful case studies, and offers a rundown of each type's work-related strengths and weaknesses. Focusing on each type's strengths, Do What You Are uses workbook exercises to help listeners customize their job search, ensuring the best results in the shortest period of time.

Quick Guide to Myers-Briggs in the Workplace
This book is book works well as a general reference material. The first few chapters provide a good overview of how Myers-Briggs can be adapted to the workplace and how one's strengths can be used to work towards a job that is well adapted to your strengths or as an explanation as to why a job that on the surface seems to be perfect but just doesn't quite fit. I recommend it for a good starting place in seeking out a new career or academic path. It does get muddy and difficult to navigate in later chapters when it goes into the individual types. For these sections, I would recommend a print copy of the material.

Not the best for audiobook
The topic was interesting, but it was a challenge listening to this book as an audiobook because half of the book isn't about your type. I found myself skipping around trying to find my chapter, which I find somewhat interesting I guess. I say it wasn't worth the hassle.

A really insightful read used tests online to confirm my personality type. My family enjoyed the insight we gave each other. It would have been five stars had it had a sequel book to follow or actually give guidance as to how to pursue further study or certain jobs. But a really great read.
