Understanding Personality (and a Book List!) | Anne Bogel | Dear Daughters 52

Do you want to journey deeper into self-awareness, but feel like you need a guide? It can be confusing to hear people rattle off a bunch of numbers and letters trying to help you better understand yourself if you don’t have enough context.

Today, I talk with Anne Bogel about her latest book, Reading People, which gives an in-depth look at seven different personality frameworks. We also talk books (LOTS of books), the glory days of the 80’s hit-wonder, Color Me Beautiful, and our thoughts about book to movie adaptations.

Anne is a wife, mom to 4, bookworm and author. She writes online at Modern Mrs. Darcy and hosts the What Should I Read Next? Podcast.  I can’t wait for you to meet her! Here’s the interview on the Dear Daughters Podcast Episode 52.


I like these personality frameworks because I think they say something true about people, but they don’t capture all of who we are. Our personality interacts with our character and our past experiences. ~ Anne Bogel

God can shift and change things not just through reading the Word, but through being outside and getting revelation, like it talks about in Romans. He’s always talking, He’s always communicating – through a book, through the Word, through nature, through conversations with other people, at dinner with your family. God is always trying to talk to us. ~ Susie Davis

We all have personalities, and we all have defining traits about it that we choose and shape and form, like our character, and some of us believe that we have callings, and all those things work together to make us who we are today. ~ Anne Bogel

Anne’s advice to her 20 year old self: Be gentle with yourself.
