Finally, there is a simple, clear, true-to-life map of personality that gives you the key to understanding people and communicating with them effectively. This is a book that can change your life. This is one of the most useful popular psychology books I have ever seen. . . . It should become a classic. - Stephen M. Johnson, author of Character Styles and Characterological Transformation Much of our human suffering is not necessary. It is created by old patterns of feeling and acting that helped us survive the traumas of childhood, but then got stuck in our bodies. These patterns have shaped us so deeply that now we think that's who we are. But these patterns are not your true self. In fact, they cover up your true self and prevent it from shining out into the world. Fortunately, there is a map of these survival patterns, a map that helps you: * Discover how you got stuck and how to get free * Heal your core wounds * Learn the skills you missed * Communicate effectively with others * Develop emotional maturity * Become all you can beThis book lays out that map and shows you the path out of your suffering and back to your true self. Once you know where you're going, the inner journey becomes much easier. Without a map, you may have been walking in circles for years. With a map, you can find your way home.This is a groundbreaking contribution to the self-help field. It gives readers a map of personality that allows them to easily understand themselves and others. It shows the reader what individuals caught in each of the five survival patterns want and fear, and how to interact with them successfully. And it shows each reader how to soften their conditioned habits of attention, return to presence, and develop emotional maturity.

An ideal text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, this accessible yet authoritative volume examines how people come to know themselves and understand the behavior of others. Core social-psychological questions are addressed as students gain an understanding of the mental processes involved in perceiving, attending to, remembering, thinking about, and responding to the people in our social world. Particular attention is given to how we know what we know: the often hidden ways in which our perceptions are shaped by contextual factors and personal and cultural biases. While the text's coverage is sophisticated and comprehensive, synthesizing decades of research in this dynamic field, every chapter brings theories and findings down to earth with lively, easy-to-grasp examples.

A highly readable and entertaining first look at how today’s members of iGen—the children, teens, and young adults born in the mid-1990s and later—are vastly different from their Millennial predecessors, and from any other generation, from the renowned psychologist and author of Generation Me. With generational divides wider than ever, parents, educators, and employers have an urgent need to understand today’s rising generation of teens and young adults. Born in the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s and later, iGen is the first generation to spend their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone. With social media and texting replacing other activities, iGen spends less time with their friends in person—perhaps why they are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. But technology is not the only thing that makes iGen distinct from every generation before them; they are also different in how they spend their time, how they behave, and in their attitudes toward religion, sexuality, and politics. They socialize in completely new ways, reject once sacred social taboos, and want different things from their lives and careers. More than previous generations, they are obsessed with safety, focused on tolerance, and have no patience for inequality. iGen is also growing up more slowly than previous generations: eighteen-year-olds look and act like fifteen-year-olds used to. As this new group of young people grows into adulthood, we all need to understand them: Friends and family need to look out for them; businesses must figure out how to recruit them and sell to them; colleges and universities must know how to educate and guide them. And members of iGen also need to understand themselves as they communicate with their elders and explain their views to their older peers. Because where iGen goes, so goes our nation—and the world.
