Reading People: How Seeing the World through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel
Super huge shout-put to Ann Bogel of Louisville! So excited to read this as my first book in 2018!
If the viral Buzzfeed-style personality quizzes are any indication, we are collectively obsessed with the idea of defining and knowing ourselves and our unique place in the world. But what we’re finding is this: knowing which Harry Potter character you are is easy, but actually knowing yourself isn’t as simple as just checking a few boxes on an online quiz.
For readers who long to dig deeper into what makes them uniquely them (and why that matters), popular blogger Anne Bogel has done the hard part–collecting, exploring, and explaining the most popular personality frameworks, such as Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, Enneagram, and others. She explains to readers the life-changing insights that can be gained from each and shares specific, practical real-life applications across all facets of life, including love and marriage, productivity, parenting, the workplace, and spiritual life. In her friendly, relatable style, Bogel shares engaging personal stories that show firsthand how understanding personality can revolutionize the way we live, love, work, and pray.

Last but not least, be sure to add a lot of care, joy and protection to your life. Caring for yourself is the best thing you can do regardless of circumstance. It’s a fundamental need to keep your heart in the space it needs to be and your mind to push you through the cycles of life and relationships. If you don’t love you, no one else will either. Your heart needs this protection so you can find the right person or people to surround yourself with. Your circle will make you or break you.
Life is a never-ending battle. It doesn’t matter how many battles you’ve won or lost; the only thing that matters is that you never gave up. You’ll learn something from each one and the only importance to keep in your heart is to know that you survived… so keep on surviving.
Cheers to you and yours! I hope you have a very happy New Year!
