I could not believe I had wasted money on buying this rubbish. The author has made a fortune ripping women off by writing books which he knows women will buy because they want to do the best they can for their relationships. Apart from the fact that his structure is based on a long worn-out theory about physiological type and its correlation with temperament, he still believes in the Garden of Eden and states that the reason women suffer pain in childbirth is that Eve tempted Adam with the apple from the tree of knowledge and God is still punishing Her for it. I didn't do it, honest! I wonder how he then explains the pain and sometimes death suffered by other animals through childbirth - hyenas, for example. I wonder what they did to deserve such punishment? He clearly has not read a single scientific book or journal since he was sixteen, and I think he must be about 92 now. He states firmly that ALL men are capable of being the leaders and guides of their families, and it is women's reponsibility to ensure that they can play this part. Right?! Would he include all the child abusers, women abusers, rapists, murderers and so on? Also, he states it as a fact that men find it much more difficult to love than women do; he believes it comes to them in later life and again it is women's duty to help them reach this state. Would you want to put your life, your children's lives, their future and their wellbeing completely in the hands of an unloving person, or would you rather take responsibility for them and ensure that you do not allow someone else to bully you into mishandling them, for selfish, unloving reasons? The book is a disgrace.

This book sounded very interesting and useful at first. After I began reading, I found religious comments frequently. Men's personalities were compared to men in the bible, for example. This may be what you want, but I was mislead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Lahaye, the unsung miracle man of "modern" psychology 1 Jun 2000
By Remi Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book made me throw all my past ideas of psychology aside. It changed my life! While simple to read, this book is both the unified field theory and the rosetta stone of the human personality. Totally amazed, I followed Dr. Lahaye's simple wheel chart and went right to a categorized temperament type. Bulls eye! Using a daringly bold style my temperament category was told of it's greatest weakness. Exposed, I saw myself as silly and not strong. I now block that characteristic out of my interpersonal relationships with men, and especially women. Like a similar best selling author, Dr. Laura, Dr. Lahaye writes with scriptural emphasis probably gleaned from his Christian college President and professional family counseling years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Improved Interpersonal Relationships 28 July 2003
By Dr. W. G. Covington, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The goal of this book is to enhance communication between people. Differences in communication styles and assumptions between genders is discussed throughout the book. Four categories of personality are presented; sanguine, choleric, melancholy, and phlegmatic. Combinations of these four major groups are also included. A section is devoted to introverts and extroverts. Additional topics under the four basic temperaments include: character, productivity, courage, emotions, sexuality, and mind. These subcategories are placed under the major four and explained as they relate to each one.
3.0 out of 5 stars One of Tim laHaye's better books 11 July 2002
By Kate Slan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is one of Tim LaHaye's better non-fiction efforts... as a professional in the field of personality (which Tim calls temperament) there are many better books available, but it is not bad.
Most of the info on personality factors is non-gender-specific, although the illustrations and applications used all relate to men, so remember that if you're looking for information on personality in general. It is quite accessible and understandable, and it would be good to see companion books about women's and kids' personalities - particularly kids, because understanding the personality of your children is an exceptional parenting tool. However, I think Tim is too busy churning out apocalyptic novels to worry about these at the moment!
