    Default Your book collection: a reflection of type?

    I spend a lot of time reading, and I've always felt that if only I could share my book list with people, they would have good insight into my personality.

    So, here is my bookshelf! Do you notice some patterns that reflect a certain type?

    I invite you to post your own bookshelves for analysis! (The images I used are screen shots taken from Shelfari.)

    Most of my books are Seventh Habit-like books or books on psychology and economics. Too lazy to see what books I actually have, but, well, you guys can work with that.

    Well, this is really interesting.

    I have a number of these: Please Understand Me II, Gifts Differing, Flow, Personality Type An Owners Manual (just got that one), Just Your Type. I'm also a pretty huge Tori Amos fan.

    I must say, I have no books on quilting.

    I'll post a list later.

    Cool idea! Very NF and self-improvement oriented. Nice - keep polishing!

    I was thinking back to my own bookshelf and realized that I didn't buy any pop psychology books until very recently. How strange considering how much I now enjoy reading on the subject. Everything in it's time, I guess. I always had a large collection of novels and travel books...something about an engaging story with well drawn out characters and fascinating places so far away.
