Publisher's Summary

Like a thumbprint, personality type provides an instant snapshot of a person's uniqueness. Drawing on concepts originated by Carl Jung, this audiobook distinguishes four categories of personality styles and shows how these qualities determine the way you perceive the world and come to conclusions about what you've seen. It then explains what they mean for your success in school, at a job, in a career, and in your personal relationships.  

For more than 60 years, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) tool has been the most widely used instrument in the world for determining personality type, and for more than 25 years, Gifts Differing has been the preeminent source for understanding it.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

half/half

its like they served the best for last.

it could of been better.
i say this because for the first half of the book is talking about graphs that are being displayed in the book. so you can't actually follow along too well. this being a 8 hour book that's a long time.

i say they served the best for last because the last half of the book had interesting insight on the personality types. no longer did they need to talk about images or graphs. It was generalized than brought into detail so one is able to follow along.

i especially liked the last chapter because it went over the thinking patterns and approaches of each generalized concept. as well as recommendations on how to get along and associate with one another.

Great book but not great for audio.

I enjoy audio books when I'm out and about, and this specific book is best when you can reference all of the supplemental material.

accurate

My personal development has soared. The society will find MBTI useful and be understanding in fundamental differences in people.

Very interesting material

I thought that Patricia, the narrator, did a wonderful job. The text comes from a time before today's media savvy self-help have learned how to capture their audience's attention in a glib style. But don't let that minimize this material -- it is still as interesting as it is important and informative. And because the Myers-Briggs personality typology is timeless, it is still strongly relevant today as ever. I was looking forward to an audiobook version of Gifts Differing, so I am glad it has finally materialized.

Information and inspiration in one book

As an ENFP reader, I learned more about my type and the types of others.
