from Harry Potter and The Wizard of Oz
to Sex and the City and Star Trek --
Dr. Montgomery brings alive
the four basic "people patterns"
that hold the key to personality types.

Features a new short-form personality test
(the "Shorter Sorter")
and easy-to-read portraits
of the Sixteen Types.


"Try to see it my way." Taking his cue from the Beatles, Dr. Montgomery presents a modern guide to the four temperaments -- the four ancient "people patterns" that hold the key to personality types.

Montgomery cites dozens of characters from popular books, movies, and TV -- from The Wizard of Oz and Harry Potter to Star Trek and Sex and the City -- to bring the Artisans, Guardians, Idealists, and Rationals alive for a contemporary audience.

Entertaining and easy to read, People Patterns introduces a new short form temperament questionnaire, and features chapters on dating and mating, on parents and their children, and on finding the right career and job.

Also includes brief descriptions of the sixteen personality types. A clear, concise, user-friendly introduction to temperament and type.

Artisans - the action temperament, daring, impulsive, spontaneous, playful, generous
. . . think of Hawkeye Pierce.

Guardians - the cornerstone temperament, helpful, responsible, traditional, law-abiding, steady
. . . think of Clark Kent.

Idealists - the personal growth temperament, enthusiastic, romantic, soulful, ethical, intuitive
. . . think of Luke Skywalker.

Rationals - the technology temperament, theoretical, ingenious, logical, analytical, curious
. . . think of Mr. Spock.

Take a new, short-form, self-scoring personality sorter, and then read about your temperament style in four vital areas of life:

  • Self-discovery - the four characters from The Wizard of Oz introduce short, lively portraits of the four temperaments, each illustrated by a dozen popular films.

  • Relationships - the four friends from Sex and the City set the tone for a frank discussion of dating and mating patterns among the four temperaments.

  • Parenting - the four-part layout of Disneyland shows us where our kids are coming from, and how different parenting styles can affect the four different kinds of children.

  • Career - the four kinds of characters in Star Trek define the different talents of the four temperaments, helping readers choose from among 16 career paths and over 280 jobs.
