Thomas Erikson Ô 9 Read

And get the best out of the people you have to deal with – be it at work in public or at homeThomas Erikson guarantees that after reading this book the number of idiots around you will be drastically reduced and you will have a better understanding of everyone around you With a bit of luck you can also be confident that the idiot out there is not you. This psychologyself help book is claimed to prove better communications and understanding of different kinds of human behaviour It s a huge bestseller in the author s home country of Sweden and now it s making waves here in the UK too To be honest right now the title seems uite appropriate for the current situations However this was a straight up read filled with real life examples and traits examined under four different colours At first this did read well However I started to feel uite disconnected and a little bored after about 150 pages or so It s good if you are studying psychology for any courses Not so if you are looking for a general read

Omgiven av idioter

Do you ever look around you and think you’re the only one making any sense Or tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results Do long rambling answers drive you crazy Or does your colleague’s abrasive manner get your back up Do you ever get the feeling you’re surrounded by idiots You are not alone Swedish behavioural scientist and runaw. First of all I would like to address some issues other reviewers had mentioned This author thinks he discovered some brand new theory when it s only choleric melancholic sanguine and phlegmatic once again this is VERY not true Author actually mentions Hippocrates and his theory multiple times And yes this book is all about four temperaments theory just portrayed as colors which in my opinion was apealing to reader s imagination in author s mind Book describes 4 types of people as only possibilities that exist a person cannot be simply put in any of these groups this opinion could only be written by someone who did not actually read the book itself Author gives multiple examples of people being dual colors or having different elements of multiple colors in their personalities 4 types are about groups of features that every person is made of and they can be mixed in many different waysNow having that out of the way I can say that I had a few good laughs seeing different people that I know in colors descriptions Stories from real life that author puts here and there are indeed very made up but they are only serving certain points so I guess they can be taken as metaphors There is nothing very new to the characteristics of 4 colors since it s based entirely on Hippocrates Author mentiones multiple ways to DEAL WITH them though which I ve never read anywhere before Author has his own way of mentioning I am a proffesional I ve worked in this field for 20 years now I give lectures and speeches on that topic and other show offy bits almost every chapter which might become irritating for some readersI would not recommend this book to anyone who had already read a lot of books on personalities types topic It won t bring you anything new To everybody else give it a go It has some useful and funny bits

Review Omgiven av idioter

Ay bestselling author Thomas Erikson is here to help and will inform and entertain you in eual measure Available in English for the first time Surrounded by Idiots presents his simple model based on four personality types Red Blue Green and Yellow When you understand the psychology of each you can adapt your communication style to handle anyone easily. Easy to approach overview of human interrelations So if you ve been exposed to Myers Briggs or basic psychology then the breakdown into four types is not going to be difficult to grasp at all The value in this book is rather than it merely being a categorical reference it explains how to approach give feedback criticism workflow etc for the different types Generally people grok those that are similar to themselves but others who approach activity differently may be perplexing at times Erikson provides a plethora of anecdotal examples to illustrate each instance Of course being what I am personality wise I found this to be a bit too much chitchat in style but that also made me laugh since the book kinda was pointing out different strategies I found this a useful refresher course
