Hi, My name is Patrick. I'm a graduate psychologist, senior management consultant and bestselling author. Since leaving the academic life and finding my way in the 'real world' I realized that learning to understand human behavior and it's psychology never really stops. As an experienced management consultant, I had the opportunity to deliver many projects for CEOs, CFOs, and other high-level executives. During that time I realized that the ability to analyze people's behavior and derive smart strategies and tactics is way more important than just to deliver what they asked for. Now in my late 50's and spending over 30 years of studying and testing which theories really work in real life, I'm happy to share my knowledge and actionable advice in my books. Let's start our journey now and take some serious action. yours sincerely, Patrick
"Wow this book is very insightful. It helps to view people in a different light. For instance " I Made up my Mind" if an individual says he or she has made up their mind, they have most likely considered several options before making a clear decision. It implies that a person is prone to contemplating and reflecting upon their decision rather than making spur of the moment decisions." - Daniel A. Nelson"I work for a company who supplied this book for reading doing downtime and I must say, "It has completely helped me understand me a little better." I made a lot of notes that I will be going back to look over and put into practice. It talked about the Briggs-Myers Personality Indicator which helps you to determine which one of the 16 personality traits you have. I took the test and found out that I am a "Protagonist." My personality indicator according to the Brigg-Myers Personality Indicator is ENFJ-A. It means that as this type I have well-developed people skills and I am known to be empathetic, kind, disciplined, and affectionate, which surprisingly is exactly the kind of person I am. I love people and do not meet a stranger anywhere I go. Again great read! If you want to know how to best deal with people then read this book!"
