The Personality Code clearly and persuasively demonstrates how personality determines why we do what we do and how we can maximize our strengths, work smarter with others, and profit from better relationships in our careers. Based on the IDISC(tm) Personality Profile-an updated and rigorously validated proprietary version of DISC, the world's most popular form of personality testing-the book provides insights and strategies for individuals and organizations that promote self-awareness and foster excellence. Listeners will have free access to the online IDISC(tm) Personality Profile (each book includes a unique code number), which will reveal their own profiles from among the fourteen personality types that have been refined and defined through the author's six-year international study involving more than five hundred thousand participants. Travis Bradberry shows readers how to discern the fixed characteristics that explain three-quarters of human behavior. Most important, they will learn how to leverage these traits in order to capitalize on their strengths and sidestep weaknesses in themselves as well as in other people.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 9/16/2013

    " I always like personality books and therefore found this one to be quite interesting, but only because I was quite familiar with the research it was based on called IDISC. Otherwise it may not be as interesting to others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen Cloos | 9/4/2013

    " I liked this book, and the accompanying online quiz. It confirmed what I already knew - that I'm a diplomat who tries to people please, doesn't like change and doesn't stand up for herself. Oh, well. At least I'm generally liked. That's something, right? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Blair | 7/31/2013

    " This is a fascinating book that shows you how your personality controls most of what you do and say each day. It was helpful for me to learn my type because I now better understand my strengths and weaknesses. It also helps me to understand my coworkers better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 12/28/2012

    " Much like StrengthsFinder 2.0 this book is really aimed for someone who has not found themselves yet. The book does offer some interesting insights and tips on dealing with other people. This book is also just a delivery vehicle for an access code on the publishers website, where you take the test. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/28/2012

    " Not at all enlightening and the "free" personality profile is bullshit. You have to pay to get the full profile. Of course, being cheap, I wasn't going to do that since I'd gotten nothing of value so far out of the book or test. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Sullivan Hoover | 8/17/2012

    " It was fine; it is helpful if your in a leadership position or if your having difficulities with a co-worker. Helps you to identify people's personality type and best ways to dea. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 7/16/2011

    " The text makes intuitive sense but I found the assessment tool to be less than helpful. The EI literature is getting really cluttered with various ways to slice and dice this construct. If anyone has a book and instrument that they like, let me know! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marti | 7/4/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nay | 1/26/2011

    " Must-have book for those who wants to improve their soft skills. Most of the advices are not really extensive. I wish this book had been thicker and more resourceful than this. But I am not saying this book is not useful. You just need to explore further after reading this book as a foundation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryce | 1/21/2011

    " Pretty average. It's more of a guidebook than something to read through. It expects you to spend time reading and then applying, reading and applying. Some good thoughts about how to be more introspective and self-aware if you struggle with those things. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan | 1/14/2011

    " I was really looking forward to reading this but was really disappointed. Lots of assumptions without data, causation assumed when correlation only might be true. Not many takeaways that aren't common sense. "
