Publisher's Summary

Do you want to better understand yourself, maximize your strengths, and improve your relationships? 

Understanding how we are wired can enrich our lives and our relationships, helping to overcome differences that can seem irreconcilable. Instead of terminating jobs, friendships, or marriage on grounds of incompatibility, it is possible to turn these relationships from dying to growing. 

For more than 25 years, Marita Littauer, with her mother, Florence Littauer, has helped thousands of men and women with their personal and professional relationships. In Wired That Way, Marita brings together a comprehensive overview of the personality types that speaks to anyone who wants to understand and to be understood.

Helpful Knowledge

This book helped me identify my own personality and the personalities of my husband, children and extended family. With this knowledge, I hope and plan to grow as a person and better communicate with my family and friends. I loved the scripture references and chapter 10 explaining spiritual gifts.
This book helped me see my strengths and weaknesses so that I could start living in my strengths. I did learn due to my parents personalities I have many “learned” strengths and weaknesses that are outside of my personality.

A Social Bible

Useful for the work environment, family interaction, or maintaining healthy friendships. The author has a religious filter on her views, so secular readers be aware, but the wisdom in this volume comes through regardless.

Performance by reader Janet Metzger is terrible!

The reader Janet Metzger is atrocious. Her voice is constantly annoyingly happy. She never changes it and it distracts from the text.

Good information. Good insights.

Book tries to fit all parts of life into personality types. However, I did learn a lot and agree on many points.

Amazing book!

More than a good read. I was able to understand where other people come from in personality type and my favorite chapter was Chapter 10. I can see different ways how I can improve my life. Thank you!

Mind blowing!

This book is incredible! I've lived feeling like a failure despite my best efforts and clearly listening to the wrong people. So many things make so much sense now. I'm clearly a strong coloric and have many strengths. I learned so much about how to relate to other types, why I was labeled, needs of both myself and others and so many other incredible things. So excited to put this into practice!!!

Life changing

I’ve been in the world of sales for almost a year now, and had a pretty good understanding of the personalities but this book just proved how much more I could learn about them and myself. The biggest takeaways was understanding my strengths in all areas of life instead of just focusing on my weaknesses.

This book is great for anyone who’s trying to understand themselves understand others.

Now with all this knowledge I’m gonna start applying changes into my life to make it one where I am happier in and able to help others do the same.

A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE.

perfect insight as to why people have trouble getting along. The guide to resolving the issues is provided. Wonderful charts to help is provided. I replicated the chart on a large board and placed it on my wall to remind me of my parts to make for change.

Would have enjoyed more without the religion focus

I enjoyed the content but the religious focus had me skipping parts (including all of the last chapter).
