Reading People: How Seeing the World Through the Lens of Personality Changes Everything by Anne Bogel explores how understanding personality leads to understanding people. The book would especially be of interest to individuals who like the The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and other personality tests and categorizations.

My favorite chapter was “Love and Other Acts of Blindness,” which explains the five love languages (words of affirmation, quality time, giving and receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch). Aside from delving into personality traits, Bogel also includes tidbits from her own life, showing how she became more self-aware and experienced personal growth. If someone is not interested in categorizing people into different personality groups, the book still may be intriguing from a psychological standpoint.
