My Recommendation

I've always been a fan of taking quizzes (all the way back to my old teen magazine days!), so this book was immediately appealing to me. I'm also really interested in the enneagram and Myers-Briggs tests (which are also included in this book). The structure of this book was really interesting - it includes a little bit of the history of each test at the beginning of each chapter and then each test consists of a 12-question quiz that comes with a score. Once you have your score, there's a little write-up about each result so you can find out a little bit more about yourself.  The most unique part is that the quizzes are not actually the test you would take for the enneagram, Myers-Briggs, etc. (since these are a lot longer to complete). This means that the quizzes are more fun and lighthearted than how clinical those actual tests can feel.

The subjects of the quizzes range from anything from "Are You a Narcissist?" to "What Workout Type Are You?" and everything in between. For the most part, I found my results to be quite accurate (especially quizzes like "What's Your Love Language?" and "What Type of Rule Breaker Are You?"). However, there were a couple of quizzes that felt wildly inaccurate - not sure if that was user error or not but it felt a tad frustrating.

Overall, anyone who wants to increase their self-awareness should check out this book and participate in the quizzes. Even if you don't discover any brand new truths about yourself, it's a fun way to pass the time anyway.
