Wake up to that world and wake up to your power.
"For anyone serious about career exploration, Charles Martin provides an excellent set of probing and practical exercises for using one's psychological type preferences and personality characteristics in making career plans."
author, People Types and Tiger Stripes
"How refreshing! A personality type book that focuses on understanding your type and how type affects how you plan your career (and how you perform in your career) rather than using type to 'plug in to the right career.' [Charles Martin] teaches the reader how to ask questions related to type. An excellent, easy-to-read book."
