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.

4 temperaments

I like the abundant examples and stories, translation of the four temperaments into a clear modern template, spiritual connotations - what I would appreciate would be a clear mention that this is primarily about the four classic temperaments (sanguine, phlegmatic, melancholic, and choleric) and not about the "big five" mentioned in my search line :)

Another thing I especially like are showing how the 4 temperaments will study in 4 different ways (the Powerful Choleric will need more control and flexibility, for example). The later part of the book is very very Christian but I find it helpful and interesting for any spiritual person.

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.

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.
