The daily grind: work or play?
Do you wonder whether you are in the right job or which job will best suit you?
Most people spend a big part of their adult lives working at a job to make a living, so it’s important that they are in the right place for their natural talents and most work environments require many different natural talents working together to achieve results.
Based on the Myers-Briggs and Jungian psychological types, this book, without the need for tests or separate instruction, describes the 16 human types and allows you to quickly discover your own personality type and those of your colleagues, boss or employees (even if they are not there to do the test for themselves). Simply take in mind one person at the time, begin at the start and follow the instructions at the bottom of the page. Within four to eight pages of reading for each person, you can figure out what your own natural talents are and how the talents of your employees or colleagues complement each other, and so it helps create respect for each other's skills and work ethics - turning the daily grind into a daily pleasure.
People who enjoy their work are happier people overall.

Whistle While You Work - Nonen Titi


1. Job or Vocation?

What is my natural gift and am I using it?

Why am I in this job? Am I happy doing this?

Do I feel alone or do my colleagues appreciate me?

Did my education encourage my strengths or did it frown on my


Have you ever wondered why some of us become musicians and others seem to be tone deaf? Why you are a chef and I can’t get a simple potato meal onto the table? Why do some people excel at mathematics while others feel it’s like a foreign language?

The answer is that we each have inborn gifts that direct how we learn, think, feel, understand and do things, and consequently what we are best at in life. These gifts are not specific: one can have an artistic gift, but exactly what art the person is best at depends on personal interest, experiences and opportunities. This is because an artistic talent comes from having well-developed sensory organs and manual dexterity with great observational powers.

Other people have less developed sensory organs but may be able to see context better, and some people naturally analyze, while others naturally synthesize, so these gifts or talents are not limited to the arts or sports; people can have a talent for grammar, for logistics, for plumbing, for teaching, for bricklaying, for theoretical physics – you name it.

People can work in almost any job, but a job is not a vocation and those people who manage to combine the two are usually considered very lucky indeed. But getting the right job is not just about luck – especially today, when most people are encouraged to study in the field they prefer, not to carry on the family business; finding the right job is about understanding yourself and your talents.

Being able to use your natural talent helps you excel in your job and enjoy doing it day after day. You special talent may be something you have done as a hobby from young onward and even if you need to learn the specifics or techniques of a particular job, it comes relatively easily and is never a chore to practice.

We can say with some certainty that most people are happiest if they follow their natural gift and that the quality of any field of knowledge or skill suffers from having the ‘wrong’ people for the job.

The personality types used in this guide and their letter indicators were first written down by Carl Jung in 1921 and later completed and popularized by Myers-Briggs and David Keirsey, and the concepts belong to them. Here, instead of a self-assessment indicator in which you answer questions in order to discover your own personality type, the descriptions are directed at a third person – a person who is trying to understand somebody else. These descriptions are based on the works of the people mentioned above and on fifteen years of observing and studying personality types.

Whistle While You Work is one of four books originally published together as Playing with Natural Talents. It allows you to discover the personality types of your colleagues, boss or employees and it may help you discover whether the job you have chosen is really the one you are best suited for. You do this by choosing one person (for every new person you want to know the type of, start again from the beginning), read the descriptions with this person in mind (read he as she if you need to) and follow the instructions (YES or NO) according to which of every pair of descriptions fits the person best. At the bottom of every second description there is a reference to the quick-guides, which make a side-by-side comparison between each pair of opposing letters (traits) to be used in case you’re not sure. You can always reconsider an earlier choice. With every additional letter the picture of the person you have in mind will get a little clearer. It may help if you find out what your own typename is first.

When reading, keep in mind that this is not an exact science: regardless of their typename, each person has to deal
