To say this book is insightful would be a total understatement. Having read a few other books focusing on improving your Positive Mental Attitude, I felt there had to be more to it than these texts were giving on, otherwise there was something seriously wrong with most people at a very fundamental level. However, after reading the extremely accurate descriptions of the four basic personality types, the way they interact and how to deal with them, I came away with a better understanding of myself and the people around me.
Excellent information that everybody can use.

Years ago when I was young and foolish I was invited to a marketing event at the NEC in Birmingham. It was an extraordinary sight - thousands of people suited and booted on a Sunday afternoon, Alvin Stardust to warm us up, then some great speakers, including Richard Noble, the world land and water speed record legend (he built Thrust the jet car).

The last speaker was Robert Rohm, who talked about how people relate and communicate. He is an extraordinarily entertaining speaker, but more importantly, that day I properly realized for the first time how I tick and how other people see me. And it really was a revelation. When he suggested that you only have to ask two questions (Are you more outgoing or reserved? Are you more task or people oriented?) to get an understanding of a person's main modus operandi, I was struck with the simplicity of the process. I can also assure you that it is surprisingly effective.

I bought Positive Personality Profiles to help me gain a better understanding of how to best transact with other people. All my life I have wondered why other people can't just get on with the things they say they want to do instead of just talking about it ..... thanks to Dr Rohm, now I know.

Nobody who knows me would ever say I have amended my communication style to the point where I might be described as the pink and fluffy type, but this book has had a considerable positive impact on the way I deal with people.

I had tried to obtain this book through both W H Smith and Waterstone's for months, to no avail. Got it at the first attempt with Amazon...fantastic! Thanks Amazon! I'd already read this book - lent to me by a friend - and was desperate for a copy of my own for future reference and to share with family members, it's a great read (if you discount the God references; not hard to do) and it's probably true: we do all fall into one of four character types. This book helps you to not only find your type, but also to understand those around you. Take a look, even if you don't agree, it'll stick in your memory!

A very well structured book! It gives you a simple way of understanding a difficult subject. "Positive Personality Profiles" is of course not a deep or difficult book on human psychology, but it does give you a basic knowledge that helps you understand the way other people think - especially the opposite thinking types of people. How do people tick? What makes them do certain things and how do you know that they are likely to be thinking. What are their strengths and their weaknesses? Perhaps more importantly: What are your strengths and weaknesses - Until I read this book I didn't realise I had any weaknesses! And now I'm much better at monitoring and using my strengths so that they don't become a problem!:-) This guide on human characteristics, filled with many of Dr. Rohm's personal stories to underline a certain situation or reaction, can only be recommended! It is witty and easy to read. No doctors degree is needed to follow the terms or structures of the book. With a few hours of easy reading you can become a master of psych... Well, not that! But the next time your wife, husband or anyone for that matter has a go at you, you will surely understand the "why" a lot better. You might even learn how to prevent the "when" from happening! Try it. Buy it!

This book has been an AMAZING help to me, being such a naturally inquizitive and truthful person (a 'high C')...I NEEDED this information to help me see the reality of peoples behaviours and actions and deal with them appropriatley... consequently, from taking the advice given i have finally realised the way to deal with life's dilemmas ... If we understand our own needs, we can realistically understand other peoples different needs and learn to respect them for their right to be an individual, Knowing and realising this can surely only work towards us being able to build better relationships with others!

This book helped me to accept the things i cannot change, gave me the courage to change the things i can, and helped me to find wisdom through knowing the difference!!! Hope it helps you to see the truth too....
