Format: Paperback
There are a myriad of books discussing personality types in all kinds of esoteric ways -- from the Enneagram to Numerology to the Meyer-Briggs typology. All those may be very useful to a professional in the field of psychology or sociology, but for a person who wants simply to get a handle on how to work and play with others, they are far too complex and obscure.
The beauty of "Positive Personality Profiles" is that it is simple and deep. It uses the basic concept of four personality types that has been around for centuries. These personalities are identified by letters (rather than the Greek terms - Sanguine, Choleric, etc.). The author advises that most people are COMBINATIONS of the four types. But generally a person will emphasize one or two primary ways of behaving and being.
If you approach this book with a reasonable balance of skepticism and openness, you may find a lot of value in here. The viewpoint of the author is frankly Christian, and he uses examples from the New Testament to back up his ideas. This may offend some, though it didn't bother me and I'm Jewish. I enjoyed his writing style and anecdotes.
I also appreciate the genuine good will that pervades this book. The author wants to lead us readers down a path of acceptance and understanding. This is not about categorizing and judging people, but about letting them into our hearts.

I couldn't be more excited about a book! Our whole family has read this book including our two children (13 & 11). Everyone has been able to put it into practice at some level. Although this book was referred by a business associate, I have been able to apply this in all aspects of my life. I have referred this book to several people business associates in several areas, fellow church members, teachers... My son even used this book for a school book report. My husband and I make a practice of reading this book AT LEAST once a year! I can not recommend this book enough! No matter what you are going through this book will help! It may not solve the problem - but it will help!

This book really assists you in REALLY understanding people on the inside, especially one's self. It reminded me a lot of Steven Covey's "7 habits Of Highly Effective People"

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David R. Bess VINE VOICE on April 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
There are many, many books available today on understanding personalities. This book offers nothing significantly new in the way of content, but does offer a simple, straightforward presentation of the four basic personality types. The simplicity and directness of this title is its major strength. It would be easy to overlook because it is not sensational, and it has no catchy title to motivate potential readers to consider buying it.

I purchased this book at an event led by the author. Had it not been for his engaging, entertaining personality, I would not have considered it. This work is a very good, but hearing Dr. Rohm explain this same content in person is far, far better.

This title is good, but not great. Had the author been as good of a writer as he is a speaker, this book would have sold far more copies. This one is a good investment. An even better investment would be to hear the author in person if you get an opportunity to do so.

Figure out why you just don't understand some people. Figure out why some people come across as jerks (Or why some people think YOU do).
This book helped me rid myself of a judgmental mentality as it pertains to others, and helped me restore some very important relationships in my life. We're all different, right? Well, this book puts it all together and helps a lay person make sense of the human personality.
Another review has complained about the simplistic approach. Well, not all of us are interested in becoming masters at the DISC profile. Some of us just want to understand it enough to get along in life better. This book does just that, and then some.

This book is great with helping you understand others personalities as well as your own. Truly a great tool to have when you are working with a large group of people. However, this book was supposed to used in new condition and there were notes, underlining and the previous owners phone number on the inside.
