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.
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). :-)
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.
