Each of us is different, created with unique personalities that influence our actions and reactions.

The LINKED quick guides to personalities help you discover your differences and what to do about it!

Within the span of one hour, I discovered my personality type and had some “Ah-hah” moments about how I interact with other people in my life. Because this is a quick read, it’s also quick to put into practice. The tips given on how best to interact with other personality types are not so numerous and in-depth that you can’t give it a try right away. I had to laugh when I realized that my desire to review my answers and make sure I had answered them correctly was just part of my personality. This is a handy guide to understanding and improving communication with others. Thank you, Linda and Linda (that’s from my family and co-workers, too). Joe and Beth
