Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Does your spouse's behavior sometimes make you cringe? She needs to lighten up. He needs to help out more. She thinks fifteen minutes late is on time. He thinks showing up on time is late.

The two of you do and see things differently, but that doesn't mean one is right and the other must be wrong. Rather, as expert Florence Littauer shows, your differences are a matter of personality.

Personality Plus for Couples will help you resolve personality conflict and appreciate what's unique about your mate--and yourself! Using her proven principles from Personality Plus and insightful examples from other couples, Littauer offers husbands and wives:

Ž a personality profile test to identify their personality types
Ž the trademark characteristics of each personality type
Ž ways to resolve hot conflicts that arise between spouses
Ž what to expect if you marry someone of the same personality type, the opposite type, or a compatible type

Don't resent your differences--understand them! Allow and encourage each other to be who God created you to be, through Personality Plus for Couples.

Florence Littauer is the author of numerous books, including Personality Plus, which has sold more than one million copies. The president of CLASS Speakers, Inc., Littauer travels nationwide with her husband, Fred, teaching about emotional health at seminars and retreats. She lives in Cathedral City, California.

Format: Paperback
I'm a bonafide fan of Florence Littauer. After reading Personality Plus and finding out a lot about myself, I decided to read this book and get some insight regarding my relationship with my hubby.
We've known each other for over 30 years, though we've only been married about half that, yet this book showed me things about my husband that I didn't recognize before (or didn't want to see!).
My husband's personality has a lot of Peaceful Phlegmatic, with some Perfect Melancholy and a smattering of the other two. Reading this book helped me to see why some of our (ahem) 'discussions' went the way that they did. There's great info here for anyone who would like to understand their partner's personality and how it relates to their own.
I definately recommend this book to couples, as it's a great way to find ways to relate to each other differently without pointing fingers or laying blame. This book, as all of Florence's are, is affirming and positive, and even a little humourous. No heavy treatment of a potentially 'serious' subject here, you'll be entertained as well as educated and have some real 'aha' moments.
Get this book and I highly recommend the 'Personality Plus - How to Understand Others by Understanding Yourself' book as well. They'll become well-used manuals in your relationship library.

Format: Paperback
My marriage was in a very rough place, in fact I was planning to divorce, when a friend introduced me to Florence Littauer's books.

My husband irritated me, everything about him had begun to rub me the wrong way. I felt like nothing would ever change, and it was hopeless. This book was instrumental in helping me understand why we were so different, and why he acted and behaved the way he did. I am Choleric with some melancholy, and he is Phlegmatic with some melancholy. It showed me my own strengths and weaknesses, and how to understand, accept, and appreciate my husband's strengths and weaknesses.

In the end it helped us both to communicate better and enjoy each other more. Now, over a decade later, we are still together and stronger than ever. The principles still apply, and we joke that his "melancholy is showing" or that I'm "being Choleric".

I also found it helped me to better understand my relationships outside of marriage too- including my children's personalities and quirks.

I recommend this book regularly to other couples who are looking to improve their marriages, need to improve communication, and want to understand each other better, and have given copies as wedding gifts.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Sherri Villarreal on March 3, 2006
Format: Paperback
I have been a student of Florence and Fred Littauer for more than fifteen years--when I first stumbled onto "Personality Plus". Understanding the Personalities has been the single greatest life-changing tool I have ever found. Our once "shaky" marriage now flourishes because we understand and appreciate each other's unique God-given personality--both the strengths and the weaknesses. We now travel and work together 24/7, and love every minute we are together. We are successful bacause we have learned to operate more in our individual strengths, while striving to compensate for each other's weaknesses, now that we understand them. If you are interested in improving the quality of your relationship, and understanding more about yourself and your mate, this is a must-read!

Format: Paperback
I have been familiar with the work of the Littauers since the 1970s. It is because I am so impressed with their work that I purchased three in her series to give as gifts to friends.

My husband and I were exact opposites on the personality charts. Our marriage was very rocky. After we understood what was causing the sandpaper we were able to get to the polished product which was a very enlightening and healing process.

The principles in this book made it possible for us to communicate in a style acceptable to us both and we resolved our problems from there. I recommend these books to anyone who wants to relate better with not just their husband, but family, friends, and business associates--And ourselves! We were able, at last, to create the loving and supportive home environment which had been our intention from the beginning.

Format: Paperback
I like this book a lot. It describes the 4 main personality types that people fall into and how many miscommunications occur if we're unaware of how to deal with those personality types. It also focusses on the fact that some people are incompatible but that doesn't mean they can't be in a relationship together. Nowadays, too many people walk away from a relationship as soon as things get difficult - this book shows you that we may have different personality traits and how to compromise and accommodate those traits. I like that it shows you that it's not anyone's fault, we just have to try a little harder before giving up. I'm not into religion and the author is so there are smatterings of that throughout but I didn't find that annoying. I really like her other book, Personality Plus too. I found it very helpful in my relationships with different types of people in all walks of life.

Me and my husband weren't even having problems, and this increased the love I have for him by 10! IT's amazing how understanding you're spouse can make you love them so much more, and this book is all about understanding your spouse, and yourself. Understanding myself made me realize what my husband has to put up with from me, and Dr. Littauer guides you gently through making the changes and tells you how you can both improve. A must have for new relationships, old relationships, happy and troubled relationships!
