Why do you zig while others zag? What makes you seem unique or peculiar to some people, yet similar or comforting to others? The differences are in our personalities and how they shade our perception and affect the way we work, live, and interact. Discovering and understanding our own strengths and idiosyncrasies while adapting to others can be an overwhelming task.

Overview

Why do you zig while others zag? What makes you seem unique or peculiar to some people, yet similar or comforting to others? The differences are in our personalities and how they shade our perception and affect the way we work, live, and interact. Discovering and understanding our own strengths and idiosyncrasies while adapting to others can be an overwhelming task. In response to this common frustration, What Color Is Your Brain? A Fun and Fascinating Approach to Understanding Yourself and Others explains the similarities and differences that impact our thoughts and actions. Rather than offer an excuse for people's behavior, this book helps to explain why our perspectives differ from or relate to the viewpoints of others. Enjoyable, insightful, and easy-to-read, What Color Is Your Brain? is a guide to exploring who we are, why others see us the way they do, and how the four "brain colors" or personality types play a role in our everyday lives. Sheila Glazov has created colorful personality profiles that simplify the complex nature of our traits and talents. With its entertaining anecdotes, innovative perspectives, and resonating concepts, What Color Is Your Brain? is a fun and fascinating book that promotes both self-awareness and acceptance of others. Written for readers of all ages, genders, and backgrounds, this book is intended to facilitate effective communication and cooperation while minimizing frustration in numerous aspects of our everyday lives-at work and home, in dating and marital relationships, with team projects, among family members and friends, and within a mixture of other interpersonal connections. What Color Is Your Brain? offers the essential pieces of the puzzle that is human interaction, teaching us how to recognize and appreciate a spectrum of personality types. With the help of this dynamic book, discovering your own brain color and learning to adapt to others is bound to be a no-brainer.

This book has not only helped me with my approach with my sales prospects, it has empowered me with friends-family-relationships and even how people think in college! THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK! I am in full time technology sales (8 years) and in school full time to study neuroscience/psychiatry....I have purchased several books and passed these along to clients, colleagues, and my sales staff.

In What Color Is Your Brain, the author takes a complex topic and presents it in a simple, complete, easy-to-read, and easy-to-apply manner. It's a comfortable way to learn -- or learn MORE -- about personality types, with a fresh perpective and color-symbol approach. Green or yellow or blue or orange -- using the WCIYB system to understand the differences in perspective has been a surprisingly practical tool for me. It offers a great opportunity for personal insight, as well as helping me be more open-minded about others -- for an effective way to access more ideas, energy, and fun. It's been a handy 'reference guide' for me as a 'green'. Thank you.

Need a hug when you¿re blue? Is your to-do list bright yellow? Are you green with envy playing Trivial Pursuit? Are you a fun-filled orange? What does that mean? What Color Is Your Brain (WCIYB), by Sheila Glazov, answers that and more! WCIYB describes our personality types using four colors in a packed, fast, fun-filled book that is easy to read and understand. Glazov highlights points in the chapters with stories and anecdotes from her WCIYB workshops conducted for major corporations and organizations all over the world. WCIYB will help you understand your co-workers, bosses, children, spouses, and any others you work with using some simple and easy-to-remember techniques. The Brain Colors are based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a well-known and well-used personality assessment that¿s based on Dr Carl Jung¿s four personality functions. Myers-Briggs uses 16 letter combinations to identify personality traits. Sheila Glazov developed the four colors in order for make it easy for children and adults to remember. I have taken the Myers-Briggs and forgot much of it the next day. Brain Colors is much easier to remember and deal with and explain to my children. The first chapter, The ¿No Right or Wrong Answer¿ Brain Color Quiz, gives the test for you to start determining your brain color type. Each of the other eighteen chapters is full of charts and lists to illustrating concepts from romantic relationships to the best working environment. No worries about the test, each chapter gives more than enough to determine if you¿ve call yourself right. Best part for me is how you can change should you need or want to. Sheila Glazov¿s easy-to-use system for personality traits and highly informative and entertaining book makes this a must read for anyone who deals with people!
