With the global economy's ups and downs, the advent of astonishing new technology, the migration to online work and study, and the ascendancy of mobile communication, so much has changed in the American workplace since this book's fourth edition was published in 2007.

Excellent! It pegged me to a 't' and helped me understand why I operate from a certain mindset and why others don't.

I can now appreciate what other personality types 'bring to the table' rather than wondering why they are focusing on things that seem insignificant or irrelevant to me.

This book changed the way I look at me when I am searching for a job "I can impact my work place with my caracter; I will not let a job change my caracter. If forced to do it the other way around, it is a signal a better job is waiting for me. This allows me to keep a stable and healthy personality despite changes in job types and positions"
