As Dr. Thomas explains, "There is no such thing as a difficult person, just people with difficult personalities!" Those who understand personality and its biological basis never look at themselves or others in the same way again. Understanding personality this way will help you to understand what motivates you and others. This will also improve your ability to communicate.

"Who Do You Think You Are" will teach you how to adjust your internal and external environments to optimize your specific personality chemistry to become the person you always hoped you could be and create the life circumstances you only dreamed were possible. And, if that isn't extraordinary enough, this new knowledge will create more compassion within yourself and more peace within all the relationships you ever had, have now, or will have in the future. Understanding yourself from the inside out may be the single most important body of information you ever need to reach your full potential.

Who do you think you are? You may be delighted and surprised when you discover yourself this way!

Award-winning speaker, Dr. Tina Thomas, is an innovative and enthusiastic leader in the field of human potential and known among colleagues as a "professional fairy godmother" who delights in empowering others to create their dreams come true. Dr. Thomas holds a Ph.D. in Biopsychology and is a registered nurse and a board-certified soc...

Read from the Book

I created this book for you, to save you time and make your life easier. Within these pages I will share a chemical blueprint for personality and show you how to identify your specific personality formula so you can understand how these chemicals affect you---and how you can influence these chemicals to enhance your mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health and happiness. With this information, I guarantee: 1) You will be more accepting of yourself and everyone else you know. 2) You will learn how your personality influences everything you think, feel, and do. 3) Once you understand yourself, you are a hop, skip, and jump away from understanding and appreciating everyone else.4) When I tell you "You will find more peace with everyone you know," I mean you will have more peace in any relationship you are currently in, ever had, or ever will have in your life. 5) If you utilize this information you can create a much better life than you are currently living.This book began percolating from a private practice I started years ago. Much of my work as a therapist involves teaching people about themselves and giving them tools to improve their relationships and realize their dreams. I became extremely successful in this area and informally known as a "professional fairy godmother." Clients shared with me that their results exceeded their wildest dreams. To achieve those results, they needed to understand and master a few basic principles. While the principles themselves are easy enough to learn, the everyday application can be more challenging. Often clients hit an emotional brick wall that sounds something like this: "Dr. T, I hear what you are saying about my spouse and what I need to do to be at peace with him, but I don't like the idea that I'll have to do what you suggest to get what I want." To this I say, "Well, I don't like that it hurts my foot when I drop a bowling ball on it. But gravity follows the laws of physics, and if I don't understand that, don't accept it, and don't change my behavior because of what I know, I'll get hurt over and over again."Certain laws govern human relationships too. I call those laws the Laws of Human Physics. If you understand these laws, you can use them to your advantage to gain peace with yourself and everyone you know. If you refuse to acknowledge and honor these simple but powerful principles, you will find yourself repeatedly hurt and frustrated and will not get the results you want in an elegant way. People who accept this principle eventually sigh and say, "Okay, so what exactly do I need to do again?" After that, we are off and running. Accepting "what is" has allowed my clients to stop wasting time and energy on impossible goals. This acceptance frees them up to use their time and energy to create what they want within the parameters of what is indeed possible.When I was writing "The Ultimate Edge", I was serendipitously exposed to an elegant system of personality that, once utilized by my clients, significantly accelerated their growth and ability to manifest healthier, wealthier, and happier lives. I found myself surprisingly impressed by this personality typing system, known as the Enneagram. To be honest, at first I was tempted to dismiss the system since it emerged out of an ancient tradition rather than a modern, scientific one and because the name of the system sounded too "New-Agey Flake-cakey". Thankfully, I kept an open mind.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Tina Thomas's work establishing the biological substrate of the nine Enneagram personality types could prove to be a major breakthrough in our field. While those of us who have worked with the spiritual and psychological implications of this system for many years have never doubted its objectivity and immense usefulness, it will be helpful to have an empirically based explanation of why the Enneagram is so able to capture, with precision and elegance, the personality categories that we see in human beings across cultures and in different ages. While other studies have validated the objectivity of the nine Enneagram personality types, no one before has attempted to ground the origin of personality in brain chemistry the way Dr. Thomas has. This is truly pioneering work which has many profound and practical applications. - Don Richard Riso, bestselling author of "Personality Types" and "The Wisdom of the Enneagram"In this lively book, Dr. Thomas presents her audacious case for integrating the wide range of research on personality into "OBT" (One Big Theory) that has direct applications to everyday life, and is illustrated with a multitude of vivid and compelling examples. - David C. Funder, Distinguished Professor, Ph.D., Stanford University, 1979, author of The Personality PuzzleStep aside Dr. Phil; move over Dr. Oz. I truly believe that Dr. Tina Thomas is to personality psychology what Einstein was to physics and what Watson and Crick were to biology. - Eric Schulze MD PhD, researcher, CEO Lifetrack Medical Systems,certified Enneagram teacherDr. T has done it again! Her first book, "The Ultimate Edge: How to Be, Do or Get Anything You Want" has innovative dynamic tools for goal achievement and success. And now, "Who Do You Think You Are?" is a revolutionary book that brings personal development to another level! Dr T has an uncanny ability to combine the art of psychology and the science of biology to create elegant ways to increase self-compassion, improve relationships and help people to become self-actualized. - Richard Tscherne PhD, clinical psychologist, Director of The Gestalt Institute and Relationship Center of New York and author of "The Little Engine That Did It"Dr. Tina Thomas' book "Who Do You Think You Are?" is a fascinating exploration of the study of personality and the way self-knowledge can be used by readers to better their interactions with others. Readers will benefit from her intellectual, but conversational, style of writing and her thorough analysis of the subject. There seems to be little in the book that doesn't have a straightforward usefulness attached to it. - Denis Boyles, author, former university lecturer, contributing and senior editor of Men's Health, National Lampoon and The New York Times Magazine
