Don’t you wish you could understand every human and all their behaviors. With the book Understanding Other People: The Five Secrets to Human Behavior, you can understand others. I was given the opportunity to review this book.
Do you ever wonder why some people don’t like others, yet you really enjoy being around them. Some of my friends don’t get along with each other, so it’s hard to do anything together because they all can’t stand each others presence. Why is this? In this book you will learn the five secrets to human behavior. There are five chapters on the secrets, and those include:
- It’s All About Me
- Our Behavior Styles Come Between Us
- Your Values Speak Louder Than You Do
- Don’t Assume I Know What You Mean
- I’m Okay; You Are Most Defiantly NOT Okay
Each chapter will help you better understand others. If you have any difficult people in your life, this book can help you deal with them. I’m sure we have all used the phrase “I know what you mean” or even said “I’m Okay” when your really not okay. Why do we we say things when we really don’t mean them. This is exactly what this book will teach you.
I enjoyed learning how to understand others from this book. I’ve talked with others and said “I know what you mean”, but do I really know what they mean. After reading this book I realized I really didn’t know what they mean. I may have gone through a similar experience, but it’s not the same. I’ve even said “I’m Okay” when really, I’m not okay. I’m sure we have all done things like this before. I’m very happy to have had the chance to read this book. It has really opened my eyes about humans and how we all react. I have learned to really listen to others when they are talking, and to not jump in and say “I” or “Me”. If I start saying those words, then the conversation starts to become about me, when it’s not suppose to be about me.
