by Brian J. Sweeney, Ph.D. This work defines various approaches to life and character styles, each along a continuum. What are our assumptions? Where do strengths and weaknesses lie? Where are the pitfalls? What must be done to change a particular pattern? It is a new approach, a slightly different view of personality styles, albeit using familiar words and concepts. The aim of this work is twofold: first, to provide an accessible and experiential way of looking at ourselves and others, and second, to loosen or liberate what has become, in the author's opinion, a somewhat static way of observing experience.
