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.
I now know what my strengths truely are, and where I can grow. As an employer I know where to place people based on their strengths. I now know how to help others based on their needs. For every one in my life, I can understand them better, forgive them more, and empower them appropriatly.
I recommend reading this book, and starting a journey of observing how the people around you and those you meet daily fit in the temperaments. The principles of this theory are now a part of my life, and I have shared them with countless people, everyone I work with, and all those I care about who are willing to listen. Most find it very helpful and many have become avid believers in its effectveness like myself.
Even though I absolutely love the theory and highly recommend this book I would like to point out one weaknesss this book has: Temperament combinations which are very distinct are not fully explained and described, however, you can read about them in other sources. Also, you should not start by focusing on understanding the combination temperatments. This should happen after a few months of observation of the basic four temperaments in the people around you.
Thanks to the Australian pastor Peter Rehme, the author of several books himself, for introducing me to this book in the early part of 2008.
Inside you are able to take a simple test that will help you to find out which group you belong to.
That was a lot of fun and I shared this with numerous people, we did it as a group. It was amazing how acurate it turned out to be with each person.
The author explains each personalities strengths, and weaknesses, tells what type of a parent they are, and how they are as a friend. It was amazing how acurate our results turned out.
But it doesn't stop there. Our author takes you further and helps you to know ways to better understand each personality type, work with them, and be productive one with another. The information also helps you to understand yourself.
This is a great book, easy to read, understand, and just down right enjoyable. I highly recommend it. What type are you? Find out inside this outstanding read. I Loved this book...it was educational and a really fun read.
And I also couldn't agree more with the person that commented about how Florence simplifies some bad behavior by relating then to the aspects of a temperament, using it as an excuse instead of clarifying that some things are just wrong, no matter what personality you have - which, as this reader pointed, can be really damaging for parents using this book to help in dealing with their children.
Besides that, it`s worth the investment of both time and money.
