5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Tools for understanding yourself and others March 29, 2012
Format:Paperback
I am a certified Personality Trainer and have had the pleasure of sharing these concepts with people in the workplace as well as with families, students and in marriage classes. I have never failed to see the concepts work with people who are willing to honestly access their strengths and weaknesses, and commit to working on themselves. It is the greatest, most practical tool I have found for learning to understand myself and others. I am a more productive person, and have developed empathy for others who ae not like me because of this valuable information.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fictional characters, Timeless principles. September 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With great humor and insight, the authors put a modern, fictionalized spin on truth that enhances the quality of one's life and relationships. This book expands upon but does not replace Florence Littauer's original work, "Personality Plus." It is worth much more than it's cost in saved work relationships! If you can only afford one, though, I recommend purchasing "Personality Plus." by Florence Littauer.

While the authors lack the appropriate PhD degrees, this book is not lacking in truth drawn from time-tested wisdom of scientists and scholars such as Hippocrates (460–370 BC), Persian polymath Avicenna (980–1037 AD), Nicholas Culpeper (1616–1654), Immanuel Kant (1724–1804), Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925), Alfred Adler (1879–1937), Erich Adickes (1866–1925), Eduard Spranger (1914), Ernst Kretschmer (1920), and Erich Fromm (1947). Hans Eysenck (1916–1997) was one of the first psychologists to analyze personality differences using a psycho-statistical method (factor analysis), and his research led him to believe that temperament is biologically based. His research conclusions were remarkably similar to the four ancient temperaments. Other modern personality testing systems, such as the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, use different names, but have a striking resemblance to the four temperaments.

When actually studied and applied, the principles work, not only in understanding self and others, but, more importantly, in promoting healthy, productive relationships. To me, the failure the of the University system to address the temperaments in my MA in Counseling Psychology degree program was a gaping hole in my education. I'm thrilled to have uncovered this wisdom!

Love this book-it's very insightful and helpful in many arenas, not just in the work place. I ordered several for a speech class last fall and gave a speech recommending it to anyone. It's a fast, easy and fun read.

This book was very well written. I felt like I was in the room with all the characters. It's really true what these women write about. I kept seeing people in my own life in the personality description and could personally relate to the chapter and anecdotes about choleric personalities (so me lol).

I ordered the prequal of this book and another book about birth orders because I think in addition to our natural temperaments, the order in which we are born (and thereby nurtured) really influences our personalities, preferences and dispositions. I have a better understanding of why I am able to connect/relate to some people easier/faster than others.

The more positive traits I possess (attributes that anyone regardless if their dominant personality can possess) the more people I can get along with. Getting along with people can be easy if you just let them be (themselves).

I work at a camper trailer factory, my job is final inspection and quality control ( and nobody likes an inspector) things got bad,me being a melancholy / phlegmatic (mostly melancholy ) nobody could do it good enough for me. After reading this book I got a better understanding on why some people do things the way they do. It has been a great help and things are going a lot smoother at work thanks to this book. I think everybody should read it!!.
