Library Journal - Library JournalBeginning with a questionnaire based on the American Psychiatric Association's DSM-IIIR, published in 1987, the authors have the reader chart his or her profile according to 13 individual personality styles. Each following chapter describes a dominant character pattern, what jobs that person may be most suited for, appropriate personality-type mates, parenting styles, and ways of capitalizing on strengths and minimizing weaknesses. Advice is given the reader on how to deal with different styles, and a page or two describes the mental illness associated with the extremes of each dominant trait. Case histories and anecdotes make the personalities come alive to create an enjoyable and informative analysis of personality types.-- Marguerite Mroz, Baltimore Cty . P.L.
