About The Book

Dr Brian Little challenges what we think we know about how ourpersonality works and is shaped. It's time to think beyond thenature vs. nurture debate. It is our pursuit of our dreams and ourpersonal passions that shape who we are.

Who Are You, Really? presents a distinctive view of how personality shapesour lives - and why this matters. Dr Brian Little makes the case for a thirdnature to the human condition - the pursuit of personal projects, crazy dreamsand creative ventures that shape both people's lives and their personalities.

Stable traits of personality (now identified as the 'Big Five': openness,conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism) haveimportant links with well-being, both psychological and physical. But incontrast with these fixed traits of personality there are what Little identifies as'free traits.' These are traits that run counter to one's first nature.

Why do we engage in free trait behaviour? We do so to advance core personalprojects in our lives; we can act out of character because of the demands ofprofessionalism or the imperatives of love.

Like learning to walk, forcing ourselves out of balance as we step forward maybe temporarily disconcerting. But it is the only way, literally, in which we canmove forward. And it is the only way that human flourishing can beenhanced. Who Are You, Really? provides a deeply personal itinerary forexploring our personalities, our lives and the human condition.
