Patrick King

Think Like a Psychologist

Understand personality traits, character, emotions, and values through pure observation or simple questions.

Analyzing people in a flash — it’s not easy, and it’s not simple. But that’s because you don’t know the tools inside this book.

People give us more information than they realize. Learn to decipher all of it to further your goals.

Think Like a Psychologist is about working backwards from the person in front of you. You will learn to draw conclusions about people’s emotions, behavior, past experiences, and overall personality and temperament based on small yet important pieces of information. From this analysis, you will gain enormous insight into the people around you, new and old.
You may not be able to read people’s minds, but armed with knowledge about behavioral tendencies, developmental psychology, motivation and personality theories, and nature versus nurture, you will always possess deeper comprehension that others may not even have about themselves. And of course, there is an element of lie detection.

Understanding others is an opening to understanding yourself and self-awareness.

Patrick King is an internationally bestselling author and social skills coach. He has sold over a million books. His writing draws of a variety of sources, from research, academic experience, coaching, and real life experience.

    Conscientiousness has been linked to better success after training (Woods, Patterson, Koczwara & Sofat, 2016), more effective job performance (Barrick & Mount, 1991), higher job satisfaction, and careers with greater prestige and higher incomes (Judge, Higgins, Thoresen & Barrick, 1999). A study by Soldz and Vaillant (1999) also found that high levels of conscientiousness have helped people better adjust to the challenges of life that will inevitably sneak up on you

    People who have high levels of conscientiousness tend to be extremely focused on their goals. They plan things out, focusing on the detailed tasks at hand, and they stick to their schedules. They have better control over their impulses, emotions, and behaviors, such that they are able to focus more of their energy on their professional success. While they may not live as adventurously as their peers, they do tend to live longer, thanks in part to their healthier habits

    Seeking to analyze people and discover personality and identity has been a compelling issue for as long as we have been sentient beings. To understand ourselves is to make the best decisions, and to understand others provides the ability to make the most out of interactions, whatever your goal. Like many disciplines, study seems to have begun in ancient Greece with the theory of humorism—where four separate bodily fluids were present in the body in varying quantities that gave rise to different personalities and four temperaments in particular.
    One of the most seminal personality theories was put forth by Sigmund Freud hundreds of years later. This is known as the structural model, and you know it by its three components: the id, ego, and superego. Like the humors, they worked together in varying amounts to form a unique personality. The id is a hedonist, the ego is the mediator, while the superego is the conscience.
    There is also a strong biological basis for differences in personality, identity, and the traits we might analyze in others. First, intrasexual and intersexual traits have formed the baseline for our modern personalities in many ways. Second, there are literal biological and physical differences between those who score differently on the Big Five personality traits.
    Why does this all matter? Well, there are far too many reasons we might want to understand the people around us better and more quickly. And if you don’t know where you yourself are coming from and where you are right now, how are you supposed to know where you should go next
