Balance your Life (book review)

Hey everyone ! Today I want to talk about balancing your life, I know it sounds like a big complicated concept but trust me it isn’t that complex. I recently read a book called “The bingo Theory”, written by Mimi Ikonn (she’s a youtuber, you can check her page out here). At first I bought it and read it out of curiosity because I love her lifestyle and inspiring advice so it wasn’t to try to change something about my life. But as I started reading it, I got hooked up and realized I had a lot to understand about myself.

Very simply, the Bingo Theory is about understanding your personality in order to be perfectly balanced in life and, in extension, meet someone that matches you perfectly. In the book there are 4 different types of personalities :

  • Feminine strength female
  • Masculine strength female
  • Feminine strength male
  • Masculine strength male

Basically the book explains the traits of each strength, you’re both masculine or feminine but are more inclined to one of those. The book helps you find out which one is your strength. So this is part 1 of the book. Part 2, now that you know what your strength is, tell you about how to balance that strength to be 50/50 between masculine and feminine. And finally part 3 is about who is your perfect match depending on your strength and how you can make it work with your significant other.

The book is very easy to read with interesting examples. The whole reflection is quite insightful even though it could have been made a little bit more complex and thorough. I wouldn’t mind more psychological explanations and quotes of previous research.

Overall, despite the simplicity of the book, I would recommend it because the concept is quite interesting and for once, someone suggest a different vision : we are all the same but with variants that have to be mastered. Mimi Ikonn’s motto? Men are not from Mars and Women are not from Venus : We are all from planet Earth.

My grade : 7,5/10
