Item description for Your Personality Tree by Florence Littauer...
Overview Many honest Christian people are playing roles they never auditioned for, on stages they didn't design, while glued to masks they don't know how to remove. What about you? * Have you tried so hard to be all things to all people that you are not sure who you really are? * As an adult are you still struggling to become what your parents had in mind for you? * Do you know which parts of your personality are genuine or which are responses to the circumstances around you? * Do you want to break the negative chains that have been passed down in your family from one generation to the next-alcoholism, abusive behavior, divorce? * Are you fascinated by human personality-what makes us different and alike? * Do you want to understand yourself and others better? * Do you want to learn more about your family heritage?
Many honest Christians are playing roles and wearing masks they don't know how to remove. In this book, Florence Littauer shows how readers can understand their own personality trees and use that knowledge to build understanding and better family relationships.

YOUR PERSONALITY TREE Apr 29, 2004
Excellent book, easy to read, concepts are very enlightening. The four personality groups make more sense to me than any other self-help books I've ever read. Recommended reading!
Expanded my thinking Sep 5, 2001
This book introduced me to the personalities. The exercises at the ends of the chapters helped me discover my personality type and pinpointed a mask that I had been wearing. It also gave me a new appreciation for my parents and grandparents and the influence they have been on my life. It has really expanded my understanding of others. I've found myself getting along better with people, even those "irregular" people in my life.
Should be required reading for everyone! Oct 28, 2000
I can not say enough wonderful things about this book. Littauer's Personality Plus, the predecessor to this book was informative, but this one really dives into the personalities in depth as they relate to our tempermental make-up and family history. She also adds a deeper spiritual element to her work, which challenges the reader even further. I can't imagine a better tool for finding out why you are the way you are, who and what influenced your personality, and why we all should accept ourselves and each other the way God created us.
Freedom from the past by analyzing your personality today May 16, 1999
Your Personality Tree is the perfect compliment to Florence's mega hit, Personality Plus. Where as Personality Plus leads the reader through the steps of identifying and understanding his or her temperament, Your Personality Tree explores the deeper root causes of behavoir. Your Personality Tree tenderly excavates the reasons of deep seeded frustrations in one's personality, and the habit of "masking" natural characteristics. Florence Littaurer unlocks the key to peel off the many masks people use to mask past pain. After finishing Your personality Tree, the reader is free from debilitating struggles, and can finally start to experience the personlity that God gave them. Thanks Florence!
Fruit doesn't fall far from the tree that bore it. Apr 7, 1999
If you really want to understand yourself, it is necessary to look at your ancestry. Some people don't like looking back for fear of what they may discover. However, it is this discovery that will answer many of your life's questions and start the healing process.
Even though this book is not a treatise on nuture versus nature, it gives a balanced insight into this issue. It's amazing to find that after we do an honest assessment of ourselves, we find out we are just like (you fill in the blank, with a person in your family). Even though I did not have the extensive knowledge of my ancestors as did Florence, her many examples help me shed some light on my family's background. Examine the fruit and you will very likely determine what type of tree you have or came from.
This book is not about blame and is not a way for you to settle in the "that's just the way I am mode" either. Looking back can help you prevent some tragic mistakes of the past or at least will give you some warning signs about where you may be headed. I also think this book gives very readable clues about what things we are predisposed to and if we are wise will avoid.
I highly suggest you read the Personality Plus book first and then read this book. However, you will still get the benefits from reading this one even if you don't read the Personality Plus book.
This book is a book of freedom. Free to be you in light of your ancestry.
