A propos de cet article

First Ed; First Printing indicated.Very Good+ in Good+ DJ: Book shows indications of very careful use; just a touch of wear to the extremities; some shadows left by cellophane tape at the end paper; binding square and secure; text clean. DJ shows moderate wear to the extremities, with scant loss due to rubbing and numerous small tears; mild rubbing and faint soiling; cellophane tape along the top edge of both panels and the interior flaps; price has been clipped; mylar-protected. Overall, remains a handsome little volume in a DJ showing moderate wear. NOT a Remainder or Book-Club. Rubber-Stamped "Rental Library Gottschalks" at the lower rear pastedown endpaper. 8vo. 156pp. Hardback with DJ. This book has nothing at all to do with numerology. It rather assigns numbers to the reader based on a series of short tests, and then analyzes the personality of the reader based on those assigned numbers. And because of the accuracy I've observed in the personality analyses of those who have taken the tests through the years (I've had the original edition since the late fifties), it does a very good job. I was a bit surprised to see it again in print, although I probably should not have been, because even though many of the tests contain sections that are a bit dated (albeit surprisingly few for a somewhat topical book of more than three-quarters of a century ago), the book overall stands well the test of time, and has lost very little of its significance or specificity. In the middle seventies, I made this book the basis of an early (Basic language) computer program, and practically everyone I spoke with who had taken the test via computer was amazed at the correctness of the personality profiles that resulted. And, of course, this leads to one overarching question--was Ms. Webster really that much of a genius in terms of condensing various personality types into a small series of short tests? Or was she an early (and amazing) type of the current crop of know-nothing mass-market self-help writers, with the ability to say just enough to let her readers mentally fill in their own blanks? While the latter might make more sense, I lean toward the former, and think of this as a true gem among American books of any genre--but don't take my word for it: get your own copy and take the tests!.
