Discover how the secrets of Personality Type can enliven your love life!
Learn the real reason why your strong quiet type has trouble expressing his feelings. Or why your social butterfly is always flirting . . . or why the neatnik in your life just can't leave that dirty sock where it is . . . or why the hopeless romantic really is blinded by the stars in his eyes. Whether you're evaluating a new relationship or looking to strengthen the one you have, this savvy guide will provide fresh insight into the mysteries of love.
Barbara Barron-Tieger and Paul Tieger explain that it's not gender but personality type--your natural tendency to be outgoing or quiet, methodical or whimsical--that rules the way men and women relate. Drawing on twenty years of experience as well as groundbreaking new research, they explain everything you need to know about Personality Type, and offer an individualized approach to improving your love life. Once you've discovered which personality type describes you and your partner (or potential partner) best, you'll recognize your own behavior patterns, understand more about your partner's strengths and quirks, and learn how to navigate the frustrations and rewards of your own specific pairing of personality types.
So take heart--men and women may not be from different planets after all. Even if your partner is very different from you, the secrets of Personality Type can help you understand and appreciate each other as never before!
