Summary

For the last 10 years, psychologist Sam Gosling has been studying how people project (and protect) their inner selves. By exploring our private worlds (desks, bedrooms, even our clothes and our cars), he shows not only how we showcase our personalities in unexpected - and unplanned - ways, but also how we create personality in the first place, communicate it to others, and interpret the world around us. Gosling, one of the field's most innovative researchers, dispatches teams of scientific snoops to poke around dorm rooms and offices, to see what can be learned about people simply from looking at their stuff.
What he has discovered is astonishing: when it comes to the most essential components of our personalities, the things we own and the way we arrange them often say more about us than even our most intimate conversations.

Buy the hard copy

I also didn't listen to the wisdom of the other reviewers and purchased this audiobook. I made it through about half the book, but the endless recitation of tables finally got to be too much. I listen to audiobooks mostly while driving, and the highway department frowns on drivers reading charts and graphs while on the interstate, so I was stuck listening to the narrator drone on and on.... I think the book does have merit, but this was just not the kind of information I could enjoy having read to me.
My suggestion is to buy the physical book or, better yet, check it out from the library and skim through it to get pretty much everything this guy has to offer. You'll have to do some digging to glean the worthwhile facts, but it wi
