Item description for That's Just the Way I Am: Understanding and Dealing with Troublemakers, Wimps, and Oddballs by Willem van der Does...
Insights into the sometimes tragic and often hilarious aspects of human personality are presented in this useful guide to understanding and coping with various characters at work and home. Based on the idea that everyone has certain elements of a personality disorder, with only a minority exhibiting a disorder at full strength, this invaluable tool provides tips on increasing the quality of relationships by recognizing the personality quirks underlying the actions of colleagues, friends, and family. Personality traits such as narcissism, egotism, dependency, and reclusiveness are discussed in not only a clinical context but also in a more tangible manner with characters including an obsessive-compulsive mother-in-law and a psychopathic colleague.
