now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about this book!
When I saw that Modern Mrs. Darcy had a book, of course I wanted to read it. if you aren’t familiar, her blog is THE book recommendation blog. if you don’t know what to read next, she does.
i only knew who the author was when i snatched this one off our library’s new release shelf. i was a little surprised by what the book is about–i assumed it would be a book of book recommendations based on your personality type (hint hint, Anne, your next book?!). instead it is a layperson (yet enthusiastic) romp through various personality assessing pop-psychology tests. all the guilty pleasure of a facebook quiz but with substance!
i love personality testing, so i zoomed through this book. Anne describes each of the tests well and lends a nice personal experience touch to it. a few critiques, though:
- was this really HER book to write? why couldn’t she have written a book that married this info with book recommendations? Anne–write this book please!
- the strengthfinder chapter–ugh. in order to take the quiz, you have to BUY another book and take the quiz online. no thanks!
- decide if this is a christian perspective or not. if it isn’t, cool. if it is, then you need to do a little more acknowledgment of the ability of christ to change people.
overall, i say its a must read and i want all my friends and family to read it so that i can read your personality profile and know how to deal with you! (this is what all INTJs want, by the way).
