    One thought on “Personality Plus at Work: How to Work Successfully with Anyone”

    1. 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 [...]

    2. I don't exactly know why I read this book. Perhaps because my sister borrowed it from the library by mistake, left it lying around, and it looked a great deal more interesting than the other, rather dull book I was supposedto be reading. A quick read, and now I know I am melancholy-phlegmatic, though as I am still a student, the whole 'at work' concept is of currently limited value. Ah well.

    3. Personality Plus at WorkBy 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 [...]

    4. Florence L. is a a very fun author to read. I love her writing style. You do learn about the 4 Personalities from this book, but I wish there was more actual info not the discussion of various people she knew.

    5. 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 [...]

    6. According to Hippocrates there are four personalities:The Popular Sanguine that is fun, outgoing, optimistic but disorganized and too chatty (extrovert)The Powerful Choleric that is goal-oriented, born-leader, confident but bossy and insensitive(extrovert)The Perfect Melancholy that is deep, thoughtful, organized but negative and often depressed (introvert)The Peaceful Phlegmatic that is pleasant, easygoing, adaptable but indecisive and unmotivated (introvert).What a great bookLike what was I ha [...]

    7. This book definitely stands on some solid concepts; that there are four personality types and we all fit into one or a combination. It has some very useful information regarding how to interact with different personality types, how to respond to people's weaknesses and pressures. I would not follow it like a bible, but in general it was useful for learning a little about myself and how I would best work with people of 'conflicting' or opposite personality types. I terms of the book itself, well, [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. 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 [...]

    10. 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 stu [...]

    11. This book is based on Littauer's other book Personality Plus, which would probably be an interesting read. But I liked this one too. It is about the four main personality types (fun-loving but flaky, take charge but bossy, easy-going but unmotivated, and detailed but perfectionist). It is a great way to help you read people but can be a little hard to understand since there is a lot of overlap in the personality types. I liked hearing about how best to meet the emotional needs of other people/ty [...]

    12. 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 [...]

    13. 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.

    14. 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

    15. Cannot emphasize how well this book will assist you in understanding yourself and how you connect in the workplace.
