Description

In the past few decades, personality psychology has made considerable progress in raising new questions about human nature - and providing some provocative answers. New scientific research has transformed old ideas about personality based on the theories of Freud, Jung, and the humanistic psychologies of the 1690s, which gave rise to the simplistic categorizations of the Meyer-Briggs Inventory and the "enneagream." But the general public still knows little about the new science and what it reveals about who we are.

In Me, Myself, and Us, Brian Little, Ph.D., one of the psychologists who helped re-shape the field, provides the first in-depth exploration of the new personality science and its provocative findings for general readers. The audiobook explores questions that are rooted in the origins of human consciousness but are as commonplace as yesterday's breakfast conversation. Are our first impressions of other people's personalities usually fallacious? Are creative individuals essentially maladjusted? Are our personality traits, as William James put it, "set like plaster" by the age of 30? Is a belief that we are in control of our lives an unmitigated good? Do our singular personalities comprise one unified self or a confederacy of selves, and if the latter, which of our mini-mes do we offer up in marriage or mergers? Are some individuals genetically hard-wired for happiness? Which is the more viable path toward human flourishing, the pursuit of happiness or the happiness of pursuit?

Little provides a resource for answering such questions, and a framework through which readers can explore the personal implications of the new science of personality. Questionnaires and interactive assessments throughout the audiobook facilitate self-exploration, and clarify some of the stranger aspects of our own conduct and that of others. Brian Little helps us see ourselves, and other selves, as somewhat less perplexing and definitely more intriguing.

Good insights, not good reader

Little provides very good insights, however the audio book format suffers because of the narrator. Probably only me though, but I couldn't get over the voice

Excellent!

This is definitely one I'll listen to again! it was very insightful, and quite funny, while still being very factual. I have already discussed the content with many friends and colleagues.

Interesting in part

After the first chapter, I was disappointed and quit reading. When I restarted with chapter two, it became much more interesting and was very enjoyable making some excellent observations backed by research.
Many books of this type Has

Narration is a little agitating to me

I purchased this book per a psychology professor's recommendation. The ideas and concepts in this book are very intriguing and inspiring. However, the narrator's tone is a bit too dramatic and agitating for a serious academic topic IMHO. I played the entire book but was only paying attention to a very small part of it due to the overwhelming narration. But it's a personal preference thing.
