Book Review: Personality Plus

PP

One of my favourite books “Personality Plus” by Florence Littauer ISBN 0-8007-5445-X published by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. Book starts with a Personality Questionnaire and its scoring sheet to involve you and it holds you hand till the end throughout its five parts. When you read the Part II where the author has described personality traits of all four types of personalities, you will get jerks while going through one of the personality type. This is your dominating personality type. Mrs. Littauer has not only given way to overcome our weaknesses but also a path to improved personal relations with others in Part III and Part IV respectively. Part V helps you to invoke a leader in you. In short this book helps you to “Know Thyself” as well as “Know Your Neighbours”. Mind it Personality Questionnaire is little difficult but once you fill it up you will enjoy the book a lot. Don’t even think of skipping it for getting the full benefit of the book.
