Personality: What Makes You the Way You Are by Daniel Nettle. Library section 8B: Life Skills: Personal Growth. This fascinating book explains the “big five” personality types and how they manifest in the way we act and think. High scorers for “Extraversion” are outgoing and enthusiastic; low scorers are aloof and quiet. High scorers of “Neuroticism” are prone to stress and worry; low scorers are emotionally stable. High scorers of “Conscientiousness” are organized and self-directed; low scorers are spontaneous and careless. High scorers of “Agreeableness” are trusting and empathetic; low scorers are uncooperative and hostile. High scorers of “Openness” are creative, imaginative or eccentric; low scorers are practical and conventional.
Our personalities are all combinations of these types, but one often predominates. You can infer that if a parent is not conscientious, they will be less able to provide steady family involvement, a sensible routine, or quality parenting. Therefore if you prefer a steady and trustworthy spouse, you should select a conscientious self-starter who is self-directed and organized. We inherit our personality type. It creates about 50% of our personality. What is the rest? The rest might derive from early life experiences, illness, parenting, family structure, school life, friends – what we often call “nurture.” However, psychologists do not know much about these variables. How nurture and environment affects us is actually a very undeveloped area of psychology that is still largely unknown. Studies of identical twins reveal that those who were separated at birth and grew up apart have startlingly similar personalities, so nurture may have little to do with adult personality.
Which personality type of the five above do you think YOU are? I think I am high in “Openness” because I am an artist, creative, love to write and read, and express myself best through art, writing and music. I am open and accepting toward many kinds of people because art school taught me to accept and get along with students who were highly individual, unique and even eccentric. I also am “Conscientious” because I am organized and self-directed, have a smidge of “Agreeableness” (arguing upsets me), and “Neuroticism” (I have my worries like anyone else, but they do not drive my personality).
Determining your personality type gives you insight into who you are, why you make the choices you do, and how you can adjust your personality in beneficial ways if that is your desire. ( )

What determines your personality? Which is the best personality to have? Are you stuck with your personality, or can you change it?

Daniel Nettle looks at the science of human personality, exploring the rich variety of our natures, how they might have evolved, and how all personalities can now be mapped remarkably accurately against just five simple measures. This book will make you look afresh at yourself and at those around you, and give you new insights into your own personality. It won't tell you how you should live, but it might just help you live life to your strengths.

Nettle posits in the introduction to Personality that life is nothing but a series of leitmotifs which can be predicted by an individual's personality. Unlike other personality theories like the Myers-Briggs, Nettle touts the five-factor model developed by Paul Costa and Robert McCrae which has been determined by statistical observations--when different traits were analyzed for correlations, they clustered into five groups heretofore labeled as extraversion, neuroticism, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and openness. Because humans are social animals and we need to act in certain ways to ensure cooperation and survival, the main thesis of the book is that personality is an outgrowth of evolutionary fitness.
