Twenty-five years ago a friend of mine gave me a copy of Spirit Controlled Temperament by Tim LaHaye and asked me to read it.
I was instantly fascinated with the four temperaments that originated with Hippocrates four hundred years before Christ was born. As I read on, I found the description of a person so like me, and then one so like Fred, that I felt the author must have secretly known us.
Within a year our paths crossed, and we both spoke at the same seminar. After all these years of teaching and counseling, I have put together my compilation of Personality Plus temperaments, and I am dedicating this book to Tim LaHaye , who first inspired me. I agree with what he said to me in a letter:. Everyone wants a better personality. We all picture ourselves on Fantasy Island, where the ringing of the mission bells transforms us into articulate, attractively attired aristocrats.
We no longer trip, fumble, spill, or grope; we converse, captivate, charm, and inspire. When the show is over, we switch off our mind-set and resume our test pattern of life.
We rush off to personality courses that promise to transform us into sparkling wits within twenty—four hours; self-evaluation experiences that will make us into minigods with maxipower; or sensitivity sessions, where we will feel our way into a fantastic future. We go expecting miracles and come home disappointed. If we were all identical eggs in a carton, a giant mother hen could warm us up and turn us into slick chicks or roving roosters overnight; but we are all different.
We were all born with our own set of strengths and weaknesses, and no magic formula works wonders for all of us. Personality Plus looks at each one of us as an individual blend of the four basic temperaments and encourages us to get acquainted with the real me underneath before trying to change what shows on the surface.
When Michelangelo was ready to carve the statue of David, he spent a long time in selecting the marble, for he knew the quality of the raw material would determine the beauty of the finished product.
Every masterpiece he made was unique, for even if he had wanted to, he would not have been able to find a duplicate piece of marble.
Similar, yes, but not the same. We started out with a combination of ingredients that made us different from our brothers and our sisters.
Over the years people have chiseled on us, chipped, hammered, sanded, and buffed. Just when we thought we were finished products, someone would start shaping us up again. We were all born with our own temperament traits, our raw material, our own kind of rock. Some of us are granite, some marble, some alabaster, some sandstone. So it is with our personalities. We start with our own set of inborn traits. Some of our qualities are beautiful with strains of gold.
Some are blemished with fault lines of gray. Our circumstances, IQ, nationality, economics, environment, and parental influence can mold our personalities, but the rock underneath remains the same. My temperament is the real me ; my personality is the dress I put on over me.
I can look in the mirror in the morning and see a plain face, straight hair, and a bulgy body. Gratefully, within an hour I can apply makeup to create a colorful face; I can plug in the curling iron to fluff up my hair; and I can put on a flattering dress to camouflage too many curves. We can! Personality Plus will show us how to examine ourselves, how to polish up our strengths, and how to chip away our weaknesses. When we know who we are and why we act the way we do, we can begin to understand our inner selves, improve our personalities, and learn to get along with others.
In recent years manufacturers have found ways to duplicate some of the classic statues, and in any large gift store you may find dozens of Davids, walls of Washingtons, lines of Lincolns, replicas of Reagan, and clones of Cleopatra.
A few months ago at the office, a colleague was telling me about a book he and his wife were reading that teaches you to understand who you are and thus will help you understand others. The way he explained it, I was intrigued, and naturally I also wanted to read this book which sounded as though it might have life-changing powers.
I have an analytical mind I very seldom read non-fiction, and even less than that do I read self-help books. I have an analytical mind, and it just so happens that this book agrees that I have, so it should come as no surprise then that the minute said colleague borrowed me his copy of Personality Plus, I jumped right in.
I even discovered what sort of personality hubby has Peaceful Phlegmatic and how it balances out with my own personality Perfect Melancholy. The book is infused with humor and the descriptions of each personality there are four are short and to the point.
Did this book change my life? Only time will tell. It was informative and interesting, and made me realize that there are things about us we simply cannot change. We can, however, adapt and compromise, but most personality traits, the ones we are born with, are nearly impossible to change.
For instance: My motto: Those are the things about myself I cannot change. I can change my bad habits, my negative thought patterns, and improve myself in little ways, but I cannot change the traits with which I was born. I always knew this, but now I have a firm understanding of what the difference is between personality and habits formed over the course of my life without realizing it has become habit. Like any other marriage, we also have our quarrels and disagreements, but at least now I understand him a little bit better.
So there you have it. It also helped me to understand certain things about my children, and how to deal with their behavior. Final verdict: Personality Plus is without a doubt a worthwhile read. Sep 12, Valorie Smith rated it really liked it. I do not exaggerate when I tell you this book saved my family. We had 4 children we homeschooled until high school. I was stressed out, worn out, and guilted out by my inability to communicate effectively with these 4 short humans.
I thought I would lose my mind! Then, probably about , I read this book and it changed my life and the lives of my kids and husband. It has held me in good stead through church activities, jobs, public school meeting I do not exaggerate when I tell you this book saved my family.
It has held me in good stead through church activities, jobs, public school meetings and a dozen other situations. This book will give you the tools to roughly categorize the temperaments of the people in your life and reveal to you how to love them, live with them, and work with them. What job will most likely satisfy a co-worker or committee member. Why certain people just aren't "cut out" for certain jobs. And why your husband insists on every book on the shelf being the same height irregardless of any other issues.
It's simple and straightforward, easy to read and understand, and most important? It's easy to implement. Every HR director should have to read this book. It's a gem. Apr 05, Shalini Sinha rated it did not like it Shelves: The author lost me at the personality test.
I mean what does outspoken and orderly have in common? Or any of the words in a single row? What kind of data driven research or critical thinking is involved in it? The book is pseudoscience and doesn't deserve a review or a read. Mar 11, an rated it liked it Shelves: View all comments.

I've taken many personality tests over the years, mostly sponsored by my employer, but this study was comprehensive, eye-opening and very helpful to my understanding of interacting with family and co-workers. Personality Plus was helpful for our family when we read it almost twenty years ago. Like most families, we had the most trouble between family members with widely different temperaments because both children and adults could only see the world through their own ways of thinking and reacting.
Personality Plus helped each member of our family to understand and appreciate his own temperament as well as the temperaments of each other. In a lighthearted manner, Mrs. Littauer illustrates the differen Personality Plus was helpful for our family when we read it almost twenty years ago. Littauer illustrates the different temperaments with infectiously humorous stories. Most of our family reading sessions included many laughs as we read the book aloud together.
The children would later enjoy rereading the funny stories to themselves. Today there are helpful tests online to help you make this determination, but reading this book helps one to see each temperament in relationship to others and will help anyone to appreciate the different temperaments.

I picked up Personality Plus at the store because it sounded fun and interesting. Self help books have become a huge part of my life since Christmas , when I had a serious mental crash and put myself through a rigorous "get better" program.
Included in the broad category of self help are personality books. I read them for fun now, but also to learn, grow and see things from different perspective. First, I have to While I have it set at two stars, it's actually a 1. First, I have to get this out of the way: I have never met any man who has ever even dreamed of talking to his wife the way Littauer's husband talks to her.
She is "embarrassing," "stupid," and "wrong," so often that I began to despise reading about him. This isn't a clash of personalities - this is a person who has a problem. Trying to change her core, who she is Some of the stories in this book are flat out unbelievable. I had a hard time taking anything away from them because they're so out there, so first-world problems that nothing could be gained from them.
I understand the world is full of many types of people, but nearly all of them are uptight, cushioned individuals? Not even close. While this is a quick read, there is not much depth here at all. Maybe it's because I'm coming off of some really serious, mind-blowing books. Maybe it's because I was so distracted and put off by most of the people used as examples. Maybe I just expected too much from this one. Whatever it is, this book fell extremely flat for me. I enjoy books with tests and exercises in them.
They're fun, interesting and can teach you a lot about yourself. However, the personality test in this one seemed more of words put together without any relation to each other. I found it difficult to choose between some of the choices because they didn't relate at all. I can't recommend this one, unfortunately.
If you do pick it up, read it with an open mind but a healthy dose of skepticism. This book has been very useful and life changing to other readers, but it just didn't do it for me. Oct 24, Daryl King rated it it was amazing. This is one of my top 10 books that I think folks should have. It's similar to other resources that cover the 4 temperaments like the following: Keven Leman Gary Smally Great Dane Dominance Sanguin Influence Phlegmatic Irish Setter
