description

In the spirit of Susan Cain's New York Times bestselling Quiet and other insightful books, Brian Little, one of the psychologists who helped shape the field, provides the first in-depth exploration of the new personality science and its provocative findings. In Untitled, Little explores questions that are rooted in the origins of human consciousness but are as commonplace as yesterday’s breakfast conversation: Are our first impressions of other people’s personalities usually fallacious? Are creative individuals essentially maladjusted? Are our personality traits, as William James put it “set like plaster” by the age of thirty? Are some individuals genetically hard-wired for happiness? And which is the more viable path toward human flourishing, the pursuit of happiness or the happiness of pursuit?

Untitled provides a resource for answering such questions, and a framework through which readers can explore the personal implications of the new science of personality. Little helps us see ourselves, and other selves, as somewhat less perplexing and definitely more intriguing.
