I was hoping to learn more about myself by taking these tests. The results on some tests are difficult to calculate. THe results do not give you a clear explanation and lacks though provoking information. Was looking for more information about myself not how I score with others that took the tests.

Very disappointing.

Interesting and fun to do these tests. I gained a little insight from some of them. Once was enough though, so time to pass it on.

A great way to pass time when you're feeling analytical. Fun little tests to help you describe yourself.

This book is a bit outdated, and my friend and I objected to many questions where two choices were presented as opposites instead of appearing as items on a spectrum.

However, it did amuse us for a few hours, and it did give me some insights into personalities to use in my writing.

As the author often reiterates, this is a book to interest and amuse, not to acurately diagnose. Reading it with that advice in mind, it is worth checking out.

This book was alright, my copy did have some markings and highlighting but nothing too serious. I felt that the book was simply "ok" not bad not great.
