Publisher's Summary

For the last 10 years, psychologist Sam Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. By exploring our private worlds (desks, bedrooms, even our clothes and our cars), he shows not only how we showcase our personalities in unexpected - and unplanned - ways, but also how we create personality in the first place, communicate it to others, and interpret the world around us.

Gosling, one of the field's most innovative researchers, dispatches teams of scientific snoops to poke around dorm rooms and offices, to see what can be learned about people simply from looking at their stuff.

What he has discovered is astonishing: when it comes to the most essential components of our personalities, the things we own and the way we arrange them often say more about us than even our most intimate conversations.

    "PDF needed. Get a hard copy"

    Great book! I loved it but you need the pdf as there are charts, lists, and graphs. Better off getting the hard copy.

    "SNOOPY OR NEBBY?"

    In Pittsburgh PA we have a word for people who try to get into others' homes, heads and secrets by looking at every objective thing they can see and making decisions and judgments about their "victims". We call this being Nebby. Dr Goslin is nebby, I believe, even though he makes a case for his psychologically scientific studies of personality. At first the book held my interest but in the second half the author seems to back down from everything he has argued for by citing anomalies and quirks the distort the earlier judgments. At this point I began to think that instead of trying to scope me out from a safe distance perhaps he should have a conversation with me to find out what I am really like. I would be the first to admit that I am a procrastinator, that I take on more than I can handle at once and that my priorities shift from time to time, and also that big changes in my life have changed my habits greatly. I am not sure I like the idea of showing up at someone's home and looking through their stuff to gain some kind of conversational or date-night advantage over them. Creepy if you ask me.
    I offer Kudos to the reader of this long, longer, longest book of whatever it is. I found it great material for afternoon naps -- much better than candles and mood music or a relaxing bath.
    I wish I could return the book but it is too late for that now.

    "My stuff knows me better than I do!"

    Learned a lot of tools for studying people's personalities but it didn't make me an instant expert. The title is much better than the sales pitch. That doesn't matter thought. The book gave me something better than what I wanted.
    I never thought I was going to learn so much about my self. Now I'd wish that the people around me had the chance to read it.
