A Proper Examination and Explanation of Human Action

If you have found most personality tests insignificant, unhelpful, or unrevealing, then perhaps this book is for you. Human Dynamics goes into much more depth and provides a greater understanding of human communication and actions than any simple personality test. While people can be placed into certain "dynamics," these dynamics are not nearly as restraining or stereotypical as personality tests tend to be. Rather than explaining one's personality, dynamics explain how groups of people tend to process information, not necessarily how aggressive, passive, or "likeable" they are. This book helped me in terms of personal discovery, and has also helped me understand why it always seemed that so many people "just never seemed to think like me."

Great book

Models to describe human personality are presented. Each model has it unique characteristics, its strengths and weaknesses. Each model will respond most effectively to certain modes of communications. This understanding of the different models presented will help a manager, a teacher, a student or just about anybody to understand themselves and people around them better. This will enable better communication of ideas and thoughts. Students will learn better and managers will be able to communicate more effectively with individuals. The models can be taken up to an organizational level. The applications of this book are far and wide. It is also simply and clearly written.

improving teamwork in your organisation,family & community

the first time that I have found an approach which looks at humans holistically and systemically. It is not a group of personality characteristics describing superficial behaviours, but a way of understanding and recognising internal processes particular to various human dynamics. It therefore goes much deeper than any other personality assessment technique I have seen and because of this can not be reduced to a paper and pencil test. However, the gift this approach brings is that it can be taught to everyday people and can provide access to better relationships and a greater understanding of how to release our judgement of others. A truly life changing book.

Excellent insight into personality driven work style

The authors do an outstanding job of clarifying the personality types that one encounters in a work or personal situation and provide methods for effectively communicating with and understanding the strengths and "weaknesses" of each type. The focus of the authors is on the positive aspects of each personality "dynamic" and how to become aware of the type one is dealing with and how to make the most of that interaction. I had the benefit of participating in a group environment , facilitated by instructors specializing in the effects of human dynamics in the workplace, and can say that the concepts in the book matched the reality of the individual personalities that presented themselves in the classroom. The concepts presented in the book have proven useful in improving the way I interact with my family and my co-workers, and has removed a lot of stress I normally encountered in interpersonal communications. A must read for those that can't understand why others don't think and act the way they do

This book presents an effective way to categorize people

If you are disappointed with Meyers' Briggs, or like it, you need to investigate this book
