Publisher's Summary

Imagine what it would be like to understand the actions and motivations of others - and to know how to apply such knowledge to be a more effective leader, teacher, coach, or salesperson - or even a better partner, or parent. The Chameleon, by Merrick Rosenberg, a fun, easy-to-understand listen, teaches powerful lessons about gaining deeper self-awareness, maximizing personal strengths, and empowering others around you. The Chameleon contains 22 fables based on the Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl personality styles Rosenberg introduced in his first book, Taking Flight!

Guided by an all-knowing chameleon, the characters help listeners gain meaningful insights into understanding themselves and others.

The Introduction fable provides an overview of the four personality styles. The fables chronicle the bird's interactions over a one-year period and are followed by a "Chameleon Wisdom" section which expands on the fable's lessons and provides practical applications and scenarios of the story's moral. These deeper insights include examples of how to employ the styles to increase effectiveness at work, deepen personal relationships, parent with compassion, and generally live a more fulfilling life.

Great fabelized depiction of the personality types

Really enjoyed this book. Narration is excellent (and I've listened to enough to know when it's good!). The Chameleon is a fictionalized depiction of the 4 personality types and how they should (and should not!) deal with one another. The examples are really simple to understand, but the telling of each one brings in a lot of detail, which makes them very memorable. I actually pondered the description of how the different personality types express creativity for several days after I heard it! Merrick brought up some points that would never have occurred to me. Highly recommend this for anyone wanting to improve their interactions with others.

fake positivity, pathetic psychology for the lay

bad. horrible narration. hyper over-enunciation. disgustingly false positivity. worse psychology than even the MBTI. less scientific. insists upon it's own practicality. worthy of relentless ridicule. Merrick Rosenberg (author/narrator) should never speak into a microphone again. it's either bad acting, a delusional belief in ones own huckstering motivational speaking tropes or a self-satisfied middle ground that paradoxially encourages condescendingly. don't buy this. read into the factor five model (OCEAN) since it's foundations are rooted in the most responsibile social science there is. this try-hard, Winnie the Pooh anthropromorphized childish venture is not worth your time.

I'll listen to it over and over again.

The book was great. Listening to the stories was even better. Very well done, thanks.
