Publisher's Summary

This hilarious and profound workplace guide proves the rigorously rational and the supremely sympathetic can meet in the middle and merge their strengths. Listeners will discover how blending with their opposite opens the pathway to being their truest selves.

The famed Myers-Briggs personality scale says that Feelers (who lead with their hearts) put more weight on personal concerns and the people involved, and Thinkers (who lead with their heads) are guided by objective principles and impartial facts. This audiobook calls them Cacti and Snowflakes - each singularly transcendent. But can people with such fundamentally different ways of making sense of and engaging with the world work together?

Yes, says Devora Zack! The key is not to try to change each other. Zack says we can directly control only three things: What we say, what we think, and what we do. The best use of our energy is to focus on our own reactions and perceptions rather than try to “fix” other people.

This audiobook includes an assessment so readers can learn where they are on the Thinker/Feeler spectrum - and because it’s a spectrum, listeners might well be a snowcactus or a cactusflake. Then Zack helps them figure out where other people might be, guiding them through a myriad of modes of communication and motivation based on personality type. She includes real-life scenarios that show how to nurture one’s nature while successfully connecting with those on the other side.

As always, Zack fearlessly and entertainingly dispels myths, squashes stereotypes, and transforms perceived liabilities into strengths. And she once again affirms that, like chocolate and peanut butter, we are better together.

Actionable Ideas Throughout!

Within a few pages of listening I already learned something new and noticed that I was rethinking the way I interact with people at work. I was fascinated by how quickly I found ideas that were applicable to me and really made me think. This book is written in a very easy to access style with insightful thoughtful content.
I highly recommend it!
