It's Just My Nature
It's Just My Nature: A Guide to Knowing and Living Your True Nature by Carol Tuttle is another personality type of book that was a fun read. My good friend gave me the book to read, and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed reading it and determining what Type I am. I enjoyed figuring out what Type my husband, children, and loved ones are. Now, I am not Energy Profile expert, but the book gave me enough insight to make a guess. All in all, it gave me a new and different insight into myself and loved ones.
I would give this book 3.5 stars out of 5. I felt the information was good and valuable, but there were times that the writing was repetitive in information. I also had mixed feelings with the end of the book. At the end of the book, after explaining each Type, Tuttle had little snippets of information on various topics such as Types and Relationships, Types and Exercise, Types and Children, and more. During many of these sections I would just get into the topic of the new chapter, then I turned the page and Tuttle finished the topic up, a bit abruptly at times too. I felt like these topics were just teasers. Now, I know Tuttle is writing other books on some of these topics, and she was trying to get people excited and wanting to buy these other books. However, it didn't sit well with me. I either wanted more information (possible a few more pages would've enticed me to want to get the other books) or not include them at all. However, those are my humble thoughts. Earlier in the book Tuttle goes through and explains each of the Types (1,2,3, and 4). I felt she did so clearly, and entertaining for the most part. However, within each Type I felt Tuttle was repetitive with the information at times. I know she was trying to get her point across, but it was a bit much at times and lost me a bit. Now, let me say that Tuttle was not nearly as repetitive as other personality books I've read. If I compare it to other personality books I could say it was hardly repetitive. However, I'm just being analytically and honest. It's what I do.
Amazon has the following book description:
"Why do we use the term Human Nature? What do we mean by nature? What does it mean when we say someone has a natural gift? Where does this gift come from?
