Carol is very clear in this book about the types of energy. She suggests it is read twice. I agree and perhaps take notes. It is really food for thought and helps you see clearly the things that you need to pay attention to for harmony.

This book is clear, has loads of illustrative examples, and by the time you're finished reading it you will know your dominant energy type! I <3 being a type 1!

I think this is a cool new system and I imagine it works, but in this book Carol uses too many examples of family members and not enough variety from others. I can't put myself or anyone else in one category without more examples......I express each type in different circumstances and with different family members that I resonate with all 4 to the point none seems to shine more brightly than the others (except 2 which is boring). I gave it a 3 cause it didn't let me give it a 3.5 and a 4 wouldn't be being true to myself.

a skeptic wholeheartedly recommends this June 3 2009
By book lover - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am skeptic, and don't easily embrace new theories,especially when it comes to personality typing. However, I decided to try this method after reading a bit about it on Carol's website, [...] What this book (and system) gave me was a profound sense of peace about who I am and why I do things the way I do. My dominant energy is a type 4, which explains why everything I see and do gets filtered through a "critical" lens, and the underlying question "How can this (they) be better? How can this get transformed?" So I no longer have to beat myself up for my "critic" which speaks all the time. Understanding myself as a type 4 also explains why, when in grad school, at critique time, people would look at my work and say nothing. This is because I, and the work I create , exude the energetic of "stillness"! I think it also explains why, when I enter a room, people sometimes stare and get quiet (again, the stillness energetic at work here). This also, was profound for me. I could go on about other things I have discovered as well. I also understand my family better now, and I am sharing this information with my sister who is a parenting coach; this information will be a great asset to parents in understanding their kids (for eg. my younger niece, is a dominant type 1, who doesn't like to clean up after she drags all her stuff out! And she is all about fun and joy.) The other day, I was at the vet, and started a conversation with the woman next to me. After about 5 minutes, I could tell that she was a type one, as she was consistently bubbly despite the fact that we were talking about some serious stuff. She also had the facial characteristics of the type 1 - roundedness and apple cheeks. You have really hit it on the mark this time, Carol, and I am so glad I stumbled into this information. Even if I don't share this information with others (although I probably will), it is enormously useful in home and work life, and in all manner of relationships. You can't put a price tag on peace, which is what I believe this book will give everyone some measure of; I highly recommend it.

Know Thyself April 14 2009
By Sunbeam - Published on
Format: Paperback
Carol Tuttle has discovered a personality profiling system. But it's not just another system. Carol uses physical features of our own bodies and compares them to physical features in nature and explains the correlation. But the information is based more on the energy behind the physical characteristics and not the actual physical traits. She then helps each "energy type" learn how they uniquely tick. Why is this important? Because we often function in certain ways that are mystifying to us and we wonder why in the world we do these things. Conversely, we often judge others because of things they do and say with assumptions as to why they do and say them. Carol's energy profiling helps us understand why we are the way we are at the core. She thoroughly explains all four energy types and helps us celebrate the unique creation that each of us is. Only then can we come to a place of understanding of who we are and who others are. It is so much easier to understand why someone is blunt (in our mind rude) if you understand that they are a 4. It is also easier to understand a bouncy, fun person who can't seem to finish anything because they are a 1. And to understand the drive and energy of a 3. Understanding your type can also help you find ways to work with your unique combination of energy types and grow and prosper, rather than beating yourself up for what may be a perceived weakness. I have read many other books that profile and have always been left feeling that something was missing. They helped me gain an understanding but I never felt I was "pegged" quite right. With Carol's It's Just My Nature, I finally feel as though I have the key and it is now easy to understand much of what I have chosen in my life. I know you will enjoy this fascinating book as much as I did.

Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!! Dec 31 2009
By Mom of 4 - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is so amazing. I share it anytime I get the chance. It has really been life changing for my family and me. Thank you Carol for your great Type 3 nature in getting this book out there!!

In response to the post about the author being rude and arrogant: It's so unfortunate that we label each other negatively. I have come to understand through Carol Tuttle's book "It's Just My Nature" that we all have strengths (and weaknesses too, of course). As a Type 2, my nature is to be more soft-spoken and quiet, not wanting to offend anyone. I'm sure many people call me "wimpy, with no backbone". Type 1's could be called "flighty and silly", Type 3's "rude and abrasive", and Type 4's "critical and cold". Just because someone reacts to a situation differently than we would, we label it unacceptable. If not for Carol Tuttle's direct approach to things she probably wouldn't be nearly as effective as she is. She says it like it is and if taken in the spirit it was given can really be life changing. I've been to many of her presentations and sometimes the questions people ask her can be repetitive and take the topic she's trying to teach off track, as well as taking way too much time. She has limited time to present the things she's planned. I've heard her say several times to read the book. It's great advice because the book is so thorough and most of the people at the presentations have taken the time to read the material and understand it, but the ones that haven't can waste a lot of time wanting explanations of things that have already been covered. I've had several personal interactions with Carol (I'm not related to her at all, so this is completely unbiased), and I can honestly say that she is a very warm and caring person. Her books - Remembering Wholeness and It's Just My Nature, and the Dressing Your Truth system has been life changing for me and so many women that I know. Yes, she is "to the point" and can be blunt, but isn't that awesome? If she were like me then this book wouldn't have reached the people it has and been as effective (or even been written yet). I love her blunt nature because sometimes we need that, don't we? And I hope you change your mind and decide to read her book. It has really helped me to understand all of the people in my life so much better, and helped me to let go of some of the negative judgements I've had about people when they're not like me, or when they react to situations differently than I think they should. It's so freeing to let people be who they were meant to be and hopefully they'll do the same for you. Good luck!

Interesting, but mostly a sales pitch June 8 2010
By always learning - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was overall quite disapointed in the book. The first three chapters are just a teaser...they don't explain what is being talked about and there are several references to things the average person wouldn't know. (They are explained in later chapters.) Throughout the book the reader is encouraged to visit the website for more information, but when I did that, I had to either purchase a book, video or sign up for a class. Other than the four chapters in the middle that explain the energy types, there is very little to the book, and again, I felt that I was being pushed to buy something else in order to find out more.

Self-promoting- Repetitive Dec 27 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I agree with other reviewers that said this feels like a self-promoting infomercial. She insists that her profile system was from God and that it is different that ALL the others. It is not. They are all very similar, they just use different labels. Another irritating part of the book is that she repeatedly states that only YOU can decide which energy type you are, but then tells stories about how many people she was able to help because they had chosen the wrong energy type. ??
