Creatures of Contact: Why You Need More Than a Personality Test by Sharon Birkman, explores how social psychology can help individuals truly understand not only who they are, but why they are. In understanding the ways in which humans are interconnected and similar, we can gain a reverence and understanding of how and why we differ, and how that can create a world that is more forgiving and more enriching.
Readers will better understand the complexity of human nature and the challenges that are birthed from this complexity. Birkman wrote Creatures of Contact to arm readers with a better, more accurate understanding of themselves and those around them. “I want readers to have the opportunity to become a stronger leader, a more effective coworker, and a happier spouse or parent,” says Birkman.
