Description
It's the most fundamental of human questions—Who are you? As a highly social species, humans have to navigate among an astonishing variety of personalities. But how did all these different permutations come about, and what purpose, biologically speaking, do they serve? Here the author of The Well-Dressed Ape takes readers into the world of personality and modern brain science, sorting human temperaments into five major factors—Extraversion, Neuroticism, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, and Openness—and various minor facets. She explains how your personality helps to determine the political party you support, the car you drive, the way you eat M&Ms, and the likelihood that you'll cheat on your spouse.

"What an amazing book. I don't often use the term 'life-changing,' but Quirk is. I read this book and a light went on. Suddenly, I understand the people around me. To learn that we are motivated by the same basic brain chemicals and structures as mice is oddly, profoundly, liberating."—Mary Roach
