Paul D. Tieger is an internationally recognized expert in Personality Type. The Founder and first Director of The New England Type Institute, Paul has personally trained thousands of managers, team leaders, HR professionals, career consultants, psychologists, attorneys, and educators.

Over the past 20 years, Paul has consulted with dozens of insurance companies, financial institutions, law firms, colleges, utility companies, governmental offices, hospitals, and a variety of other types of businesses. He has developed innovative programs in such areas as team-building, management and sales training, career development, succession planning, conflict resolution, and communication enhancement.

Paul pioneered the application of Personality Type as a tool to assist trial attorneys in selecting and communicating with jurors, and has worked on dozens of high-profile civil and criminal cases, including the first physician-assisted suicide trial of Dr. Jack Kevorkian.

Paul has appeared on scores of radio and television programs, including Geraldo Live and CNN’s Business Unusual, and has been profiled in The New York Times. As a result of his jury consulting experiences, Paul wrote The Art of SpeedReading People – a system for helping all people quickly size others up and speak their language.

Paul holds degrees in Psychology and Organizational Behavior.



This book wasn't quite what I expected, but it helped me think through some issues about where I am in my career(s) and the options before me. For instance, I keep wondering "why am I suddenly interested in creative writing after so many years of not?" It suggests a reason and it makes sense. It's still up to me to decide what to do with it - career change or hobby? But that's OK.

The book looks large and daunting, but I finished it in basically half a weekend. The cover is bright and friendly and the insides are easy to read. And since there are 16 different personality types explored, and you don't have to read about all of them (once you've pinned yours down), there are quite a few pages that are skippable.

A suggestion: go online and find a "personality test" or two and take it (them). That way you'll have a better idea about your personality preferences when you get to that section of the book.

Love this book! I found it really helpful not only in determining career options for my type but also helping me understand how my type is most effective in communications. A must read.

Not very practicable for a mid-career change, but it is excellent for high school & college students. It doesn't make decisions for specific jobs, but identifies individual strengths and weaknesses, and various professions to consider when selecting colleges it classes.

Waste of money. Go to and get 90% of this info for free. Then do a job search for 50 job titles and throw in some stories about other people that you won’t care about and BOOM! You’ve just written this book. Congrats.

If you know anything about your meyers-briggs score, don’t fool yourself into thinking this will help you find a next career. It will instead tell you what you already know and then list jobs that sound like they would fit a type. No research seems to have done on this one. Nice con. You got me.… (més)
