Does it ever feel like you’re the only one making any sense and that you’re surrounded by idiots? Have you tried to reason with your partner with disastrous results? Do long, rambling answers drive you crazy or do abrasive manners rub you the wrong way?
Good news! You’re not alone. Communication expert and bestselling author Thomas Erikson dedicated himself to understanding how people function and why we often struggle to connect with different types of people.
This book offers a simple method for assessing the personalities of people we communicate with in our private or work lives. Basing its theory on four personality types (Red, Blue, Green and Yellow), this book will help you understand yourself better, hone your communication and social skills, handle conflict with confidence, improve dynamics and get the best out of the people in our surroundings.
