Making a Difference by Being Yourself: Using Your Personality Type to Find Your Life's True Purpose

by Gregory E. Huszczo
 
There are hundreds of ways to make a difference in the world, and we are all hard wired to seek purpose and happiness. The expression of that purpose, however, differs from person to person. Whereas one person may find fulfillment in volunteering, another may create an impact by being an authentic leader. The question is-what works for you?

Making a Difference

Overview

There are hundreds of ways to make a difference in the world, and we are all hard wired to seek purpose and happiness. The expression of that purpose, however, differs from person to person. Whereas one person may find fulfillment in volunteering, another may create an impact by being an authentic leader. The question is-what works for you?

Making a Difference by Being Yourself deconstructs the puzzle by homing in on how your unique personality type frames the actions you take to impact others. Building on the powerful fundamentals of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, Greg Huszczo's dynamic framework identifies four types of individuals (Stabilizers, Harmonizers, Catalysts and Visionaries) and combines research and stories from more than 500 people to chart a journey of self-discovery and beyond.

With dozens of exercises, assessment tools and examples, Making a Difference by Being Yourself delivers a complete toolkit to take personal insight and awareness to the next level-to live life consciously and to use your strengths and talents in ways that make a meaningful difference at work and in your relationships.

Library Journal

Licensed psychologist Huszczo (Tools for Team Excellence) builds on the fundamentals of the Myers-Briggs Inventory to help readers identify their personality type to use their strengths to benefit others. Exercises allow for assessing one's preference for introversion/extroversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving. Huszczo then devotes single chapters to the four personality types-stabilizers, harmonizers, catalysts, and visionaries-in which he discusses each type's ability to help others, be dependable, communicate, and motivate others. While the author advocates self-understanding, his chief objective is to encourage readers to look outward to find inner satisfaction. Recommended for all libraries.
