Shakespeare’s Hamlet offered this sage counsel: “Know thyself and to thine self be true.” If you don’t understand what makes you uniquely you – if you don’t know yourself – how can others perceive what you offer? For professionals and companies, being the distinctive exception means delivering increased, genuine value to your clients or customers. Branding expert Sally Hogshead shows you how to learn who you are and how the world sees you. She helps you identify your specific, powerful “Fascination Advantages” – your most effective personality traits – and explains how best to present yourself to others based on those advantages. While this level of self-inspection and self-promotion may seem a little over the top, the tools Hogshead offers are very useful, including a code that provides a free Fascination Advantage assessment. getAbstract recommends her self-appraisal strategies to readers who want to identify and leverage their personal strengths.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why you want to fascinate others,
- How to use the seven “Fascination Advantages,”
- How to use the “49 Archetypes” and
- How to make the most of your distinct advantages.

3 years agoI truly beleive that it's very important to be yourself but to be the best that you can be. Don't be fake because it doesn't pay, let people see who you truly are.
Always try to go above and beyond of what you can do. Exceed at everything it will pay off.
3 years agoThis book sounds very interesting. I always told my children to be" The best " You" you can be, this book seems to believe in that philosophy. I would like to take the " Fasination Advantage" assessment and see just how the world sees me and see if it is different than how I see myself.
