This review is from: Personality: How to Unleash Your Hidden Strengths (Paperback)
Yeung argues that your personality is down to a set of rules that are written in your brain, like a set of shortcuts that cause us to behave in certain ways. He argues that we should make the most of these innate rules. Rather than fighting our personalities, we should 'go with the flow' and embrace how our brains want us to behave. I quite like that as an argument: that we should behave as we want to be rather than try to fit into someone else's concept of how we should behave.
The book covers 7 personality traits that you can test yourself on. I found the tests reasonably accurate--good fun as they do make you think about yourself, how you come across to other people, and what situations you're naturally good at (and not so good at).
The book offers some advice on how different personality types should behave. The content is much better than the cheesy title suggests. Honestly, 'how to unleash your hidden strengths'--what's that all about? The book, however, is thought-provoking, entertaining, and has useful advice--recommended!
