I always want an updated note along with my reblogs. And so today, I began to write…
TOP TEN SELF-HELP BOOKS OF ALL TIME
^^^ I said ^^^
Then, I wondered…
Do I *really* think that? And if so, why haven’t I pulled it from the shelf more often?
No, that’s not the mark of a good book… is it?
A good book STAYS with you… in thought and deed. Isn’t that it?
Like, this morning, I mentioned to my mother for (like…) the 100th time how much I appreciated an experiment in the book Back in Control (Sorry, can’t link it in a reblog – but here’s the full link if you want to read about it >>> https://theselfhelpwhisperer.com/2018/07/17/back-in-control-as-promised/).
Here’s the thing — in re-reading my blog post about Back in Control, I can’t find that I talked about the experiment at ALL… and I WOULD HAVE, had it been in *that book*.
The only conclusion I can come up with is that it wasn’t in that book, but another.
This is the trouble with reading SOOOOO MANY self-help books.
Maybe it’s time to slow down and smell the coffee … or in this case… remember the experiments.
I’ve read a TON. I’ve shared a ton. I have a ton yet to share… and reshare.
Something to think about… that’s all. The slowing down, I mean.
So, anyway, Personality Self Portrait is an excellent book.
And I need to slow down…
The only reason it’s taken me so long to write about this book is that… uh… well, I purged it. Forgot about it. Then I found it again. (Yay!)
Personality Self-Portrait by John M. Oldham MD and Lois B. Morris is a powerhouse among powerhouses! But be warned! This is not a book you will flip through casually. Nope! You’re going to WORK. But it’s OH-SO worth it!
Published in 1995 it has spawned 40 reprints… and there are a whole whack of essays, reviews, and websites devoted to the study… but none better than The New Personality Self-Portraitwhich is THE actual place to take the updated test online, if that kind of thing interests you. For me, I prefer the book. Of course, I do! LOL
I’d taken the test years ago and administered it to everyone I knew at the time. It’s *that* good!
The test itself…
