What Makes You The Way You AreBook - 2007
Why are some people worriers, and others wanderers? Why do some people seem good at empathising, and others at controlling? What is the best personality to have; a bold one or a shy one, an aggressive one or a meek one? And are you stuck with your personality, or can you change it? Daniel Nettle takes the reader on a tour through the science of human personality, using an unusual combination of individual life stories and scientific research. Every disposition brings both advantages and disadvantages. Life is partly the business of finding a niche where your personal characteristics work for you. Full of human as well as scientific insight, this book will enable you to understand the perils and potentials of your personality to the full.
