I genuinely enjoyed this book and feel it would interest a lot of people who like well narrated non fiction (by this I mean the experience of reading it feels like she's telling a story that is easy to grasp).
Top international reviews
I call it an ‘eye-opener’. I am one of those people who will do anything to be “loved” by others (my primary personality type is negotiator). However, as my second personality type is the explorer, that makes me detached and sometimes a bit of a loner. Then, I thought there was something wrong with me. How can I like people so much but want to be alone at the same time?
- The answer was simple; I have a more or less balanced personality in the following order: Negotiator/explorer and Director/Builder.
So after reading the book, I feel that I know and understand more about myself and that is helping me to be more flexible.
Furthermore, it made me realise that there is nothing wrong with my husband either (he is a director/explorer), and that even when we can be very different, still we agree in the most essential and significant things.
