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. I

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.

Almost like reading two books

The beginning of this book fascinated me, I downloaded the pdf and took quiz for personality and thoroughly enjoyed all the info on the different personalities. Last few hours of book were heavily religious and quoting bible verses every few minutes, it turned me off on the book. Felt like two books- one was very interesting and eye opening, one was a bible study.

Everyone should read WIRED THAT WAY

This is a great book and life changing for one man I spoke with that recommended this book to me AND why I have both audio and book versions. It really helped in my understanding of myself AND others. It is extremely helpful to know what are personality traits and behavior choices. It’s helped me to identify those who are in my life but toxic to me and those who aren’t. Toxic ones are now gone and I am MUCH happier, relaxed and at peace. I recommend this book to anyone who needs some clarity, peace, calm, etc... in their lives.

Great listen.

a tiny bit repetitive. a few to many stories sound the same and it gets a bit preachy and religious, which is unnecessary, but other than that great listen. Will return to this in the future

This Explains Everything!!!

This book explains why I am the way I am, and why I relate to others the way I do. It then does the same for every body else based on the different personalities. Most helpful of all is the instructions for how to improve relationships with others in marriage, family, work and spiritual life. Learn to be the best you, while having the most effective relationship with the people around you.

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).
