Books 3 & 4 — The Reluctant Prophet and Please Understand Me.

The description can be read through the link. Not great literature, by any means, but inspiring. I liked that the main characters definitely broke out of the caricatures of women so prevalent in Christian fiction and that some rather uncomfortable issues were addressed. I especially liked that it challenged the whole idea of what being a Christian should mean and what a church should be.

Book 4 was Please Understand Me II: Temperment, Character, Intelligence” by David Keirsey. This is the comprehensive guide to personality profiling, which I am extremely fascinated by. Learning about my INFP healer-idealist personality has helped me to truly appreciate my unique (literally, since it’s a relatively low percentage of the population) character and understand myself better. Reading this book has taken me a step further into learning how the different types interact, so I am better able to understand people who I have sometimes considered difficult.

My next book will be one of several books about overcoming shyness that I picked up at the library. Since this has been one of the things that has held me back the most in building relationships with people and truly succeeding in life, I think it’s time to do something about it. I haven’t decided which book yet, but I’ll post about it when it’s done!
