"Traditionally, scientists have emphasized what they call the first and second natures of personality--genes and culture, respectively. But today the field of personality science has moved well beyond the nature vs. nurture debate. In Who Are You, Really? Dr. Brian Little presents a distinctive view of how personality shapes our lives--and why this matters. Little makes the case for a third nature to the human condition--the pursuit of personal projects, idealistic dreams, and creative ventures that shape both people's lives and their personalities. Little uncovers what personality science has been discovering about the role of personal projects, revealing how this new concept can help people better understand themselves and shape their lives" -- provided by publisher.

Its an extremely brief book, by design, but its concision doesn't occlude its message. It weaves together explanation and advice in a useful way, and will, if the reader allows themselves, to recognize and correct cycles between the biogenic, sociogenic, and idiogenic selves that result in floundering, and also to discover how the cycles amongst the biogenic, sociogenic, and idiogenic selves can be effortfully crafted toward flourishing. There is even a mini personality test at the end.
And I did lick my elbow.
