Arguing that how people think and how they naturally prefer to communicate is inborn, this study demystifies recent research to explain why some relationships function so smoothly while others are a constant struggle. Susie Weller describes the four distinct ways the human brain gathers and processes information—emphasizing that none is better than the others—and shows how readers can strengthen their least favorite thinking style in order to communicate more effectively with others. This skill can then be applied to any number of relationships, including parenting.
