The Two Sides of Love, TBP #36

This is an oldie, but goodie. Remember the Otter, Lion, Beaver, Golden Retriever personality test? Gary Smalley and John Trent, Ph.D. help you understand yourself and those around you by “finding a healthy balance between love’s hard and soft sides.”

“The Two Sides of Love: What strengthens affection, closeness and lasting commitment” by Smalley and Trent is both lighthearted and profound. While I enjoy these personality and temperament assessments, I also know that people change. So I read these, take the assessments, and know that they are fluid. The results might be different next year or five years from now.

In the meantime, it’s fun to have a metaphor for personality types. And it is helpful for understanding others better.

Review: 2 stars

I’ll keep it on my shelf for now. 🙂
