Aljoscha  Neubauer - Do What You Can Do Best


How to find out what you can do best

The latest psychology research has shown that we are amazingly bad at judging our own talents. As a result, many people are interested in activities for which they do not have the gift, and v.v. many people have potential they know nothing about and don't exploit.

In his latest book, renowned psychologist Aljoscha Neubauer has examined the question of how far aptitude and inclination are related. He shows what talents there are, the significance of personal interests for professional advancement and the extent to which a person's personality should match up with what he or she does. Above all, Neubauer suggests how to find out what you can really do best and what you would like to do – and how to use these insights to smooth the path to success and happiness.

"Although people are unique, they are generally not much aware of how exactly they differ from others. This wonderful book by a leading authority explains how we can be aware of our talents and leverage that information to be more successful. Full of facts and packed with evidence, yet written in an engaging and accessible way, this is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding and fulfilling their potential. An outstanding book!" Prof. Tomas Chamorro Premuzic, University College London

"A very readable book on choosing a career and career guidance."
