Written in a funny, fact-filled way, Your Essence includes the ideas of six top psychologists and the continuing studies of dozens of researchers to help you understand more about your essence. Are you more imaginative or more practical? Do you plan or act spontaneously? Do you worry too much? How does your behavior affect your personality? Not only will you find out, you'll also find ways to change qualities in yourself that you don't like. Your Essence gives you information to improve your personality and your life.
