I'm going to invite some friends to this review. Melancholy Mona, Sanguine Sam, Choleric Colin and Phlegmatic Phil. "Mona, what did you think about this book?" I (Rachel) asked. "Why don't you ask me?", interjected Sam, because Sanguine people are just annoying that way. Mona's feelings were hurt, Colin tapped his foot impatiently and no one noticed Phil at all, because Phlegmatic people are boring. That's all you need to know about this book. It's stupid and poorly written, just like this revie ...more

Personality Plus at Work
By Florence Littauer and Rose Sweet

Have you ever wished it would just be natural for people to complement us in everything we do at work? If the workforce is a priceless resource, why do some employees feel they are reduced to things? Why is success based on fostering relationships? Is it enough to co-exist with colleagues we don’t easily get along with?

The workplace is a showcase of diversity. A dynamic team will always be composed of people who possess varying levels o

I would recommend this book as it reminds you that we are all different and definitely have strengths that can be used efficiently if valued.
Loved the fact that in relationships the opposite personality seem to get attracted and this only makes the couple/partnership healthier and more round. No need to change, maybe more to learn from eachother.
Look at how people behave and just tap into their streghts, though the instinct is to judge "he/she is not performing/not good" just because they are n

I read this book for work and despite breezing right through it, I had some major qualms that made me annoyed with it. (I bet you could say I'm Choleric! Except not really because that's dumb.)

To start out with: I don't have anything against personality assessments. Really, I don't. In fact, there was a period of time in which I probably took too much stock in the Myers-Briggs, despite the fact that I knew it has severe limitations. But even then, I think the prospect of finding four personality

The author describes a class that she taught with Rose. They share the four personality types which are sanguine, choleric, melancholy and phlegmatic. She shares the strengths and weaknesses of each of the personality types. She continually reminded her students and her readers that each and every person is unique and valuable. "Each person is unique, unrepeatable, and worthy of love and respect. Each of us is a gift to our family, our workplace, and our community."
This book encouraged me to

Really thought this was helpful. The author makes it clear that this shouldn't be used to pigeonhole people or ostracize people, but that it can help work better with various personality types. I also found a place online to take the test and was surprised by what I found out. I think I thought I was a pretty even personality type (and in fact, I am) but it did tip toward a stronger Choleric than I would have thought. I can think of three people in my life who are extremely strong (wholly Choler ...more

I got this book on my kindle for free and think I would have liked the original Personality Plus better. The stories were fun, but I skipped all the workplace stuff because they were all in categories that didn't apply to me. I didn't walk away able to identify anyone else's personalities or my secondary personality which was disappointing. Just an FYI to my friends on here, this is considered a Christian book. I read that the original has tons of biblical references, but this one only had a cou ...more
Andrew
As a Choleric, I found this book very helpful. I personally thought this was one of the more well developed ones, which is expected since its publication is so recent. I copied many of the charts and put them on my wall to help me think of other's needs throughout the day. Highly recommend to people who want to make a difference in themselves and others in any cooperative environment.
Nathan
ridiculous. another book that ignores situation-dependent demeanor from the start. people just don't walk up to you and tell you who they are. this book is as ridiculous as how i refuse to capitalize letters in this review. sorry, but fyi hippocrates is not modern science
Adeliyn
Cannot emphasize how well this book will assist you in understanding yourself and how you connect in the workplace.
