Me, Myself and Us: How our personalities shape our lives
Chapter one of Brian Little's book starts with a quote:
"Every person is, in certain respects like all other people, like some other people and like no other person."
The book is called "Me, Myself and Us - The Science of Personality and the Art of Well Being."
It delves into the fascinating and complex world of personality psychology from a man who's studied and lectured in the field for decades.
Brian Little is a Fellow of the Well-Being Institute at Cambridge University. He divides his time between Cambridge and Ottawa where he is a Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus at Carleton University.
Brian Little spoke with Anna Maria Tremonti, on The Current, in October.
