How INFJs Can Get Over Those Pesky Trust Issues

Most Introverts, and especially Intuitive Introverts, find it really hard to trust people.

Top Ten Mistakes That Extraverts Unwittingly Make

Success in relationships, careers and family life isn't about having the "right" personality. It's about understanding your individual traits and how these support, or undermine, success.

Is Your Personality Ruining Your Diet?

Around one in five of us start a new diet every few weeks, and January just happens to be peak season for all those weight-loss resolutions.

Everyone else will be calorie-counting, detoxing, low carbing, blood typing, going paleo and suffering, to absolutely no avail.
