In my opinion, to understand one's "personality" (a HUGE concept that cannot be captured in one fell swoop), one should study Behavioral Style (this book), Cognitive Style (anything on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), and Motivational Style (anything on both internal and/or external motivators). I'm a firm believer that becoming a student of these areas help us improve our emotional intelligence, a key factor for success.
As for Littauer's Personality Plus book, it's engaging and informational, and it's a relatively quick read. I've been recommending it for decades (to everyone **except** those who resemble Mr. Spock or Sheldon Cooper in their behavioral style). :-)
All I can say is, this is a MUST READ for EVERY human being on the planet. If you haven't read it, READ IT! It will change your life - guaranteed. I would go so far as to say it launched my marriage light-years forward (if not saved it completely!). My wife says the same.
This is now a book I hand out and recommend to people regularly, and I plan to keep it up.
This is the best description that can be given to Personality Plus, “A life changer”, it will give you so much insight on who you are, what are your strengths, how you can invest in them, what are your weakness and how you can conquer them. Not only this, but it is a manual of people that will help you understand, cope with, appreciate and tolerate different temperaments.
On the first pages you will have a small test that you must do in order to identify your major temperament, the book identifies four major personalities (temperaments). The majority will have a high percentage on one specific trait and the rest will be distributed on the other three, as no one is 100% of one.
After doing the test you will start reading about the four temperaments, what they are, what differentiates them and their major traits. When the part in relation to my personality came up, I felt like I was reading about me, felt I was looking in the mirror and smiling to myself. Reading about my trait has been crucial in showing me where I have done well when during the years, I have been trying to work on improving and dealing with my strength and weaknesses, and where I can still do more to improve and how.
I am positive this will be a vital tool in the hands of those who have not yet started to work on themselves. For those who need to understand who and what they are, what are their major strengths and weaknesses, and if they need to improve, then where and how.
Personality plus will make many individuals; couples and families understand each other and blend to live if not happily at least in peace and harmony.
It is a manual to be referred to constantly and this is what I plan to do.
Get this book! It'll make dealing with others a whole lot easier and you will know which of your traits need improving and how to do so.
If you're looking to discover who you are, you're strengths and weaknesses and how to overcome them, get this book! #1 on my list for the last 10 years
