The readers should come away with an ability to use their personality preferences in a balanced way that will enable them to see from a broader perspective
Longwood, FL (Vocus) May 31, 2010
Most people are not ambidextrous when it comes to their personality preferences. Their tendency is to stay with their most natural ways of gathering information and evaluating information, when in fact there are two opposite ways to perceive and evaluate. When people use only their most preferred way to perceive and evaluate, they limit their potential in their vocations and relationships. Within the pages of author Michael E. Lanphere’s new Xulon Press book, In His Image: Discovering Your God Given, Inborn Personality Characteristics ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-807-0), readers will learn how to broaden and enhance their personality preferences, both for themselves and for those to whom they relate.
“The readers should come away with an ability to use their personality preferences in a balanced way that will enable them to see from a broader perspective,” the author says. “When it comes to making decisions, they will begin to understand how to approach people and processes in a way that is most suited for the moment. This book shows people how to use all of their functions regarding gathering information and evaluating that data.”
The book is the result of the Lanpheres’ success over the last 30 years using the MBTI and Keirsey Temperment assessments in pre-marital and marriage counseling. They have also been teaching a 20-hour seminar called “In His Image” for 23 years helping missionaries understand personality dynamics. The Lanpheres, themselves being mirror opposites, have tried and tested the principles in this book in their own marriage. Readers will find help in every relationship by these principles that bring illumination, transformation, and empowerment to live in harmony with one another.
