NPA Personality Theory: The Essentials By A.M. Benis
eBook (ePub): $2.99
by A.M. Benis, ScD, MD. This landmark book brings together the essential elements of the NPA personality model. The premise is that every individual has several major personality traits resulting... More > from just a few genes. The traits assort themselves in various combinations to give discrete "personality types" that anyone can learn to recognize. For those not familiar with the NPA model, there is ample introductory material. Included are the twenty original "Case studies" that illustrate how the personality traits are inherited from parents to offspring. The book concludes with a detailed chapter on the geographic distribution of the NPA traits throughout the world. There are two appendices: one that clarifies the parallel relationships between "narcissism" and "sadism", and a second appendix that describes the online "NPA personality test" by which the reader can self-diagnose his or her genetic personality type.

by A.M. Benis, ScD, MD. The purpose of this book is to allow you, the reader, to see how your personality type was inherited. Our premise is that everyone has several major personality traits... More > resulting from just a few genes, and that we can trace the traits in a family tree. By personality type, we mean that the traits assort themselves — one, two or three traits together. There are three basic traits and about a dozen common personality types. If you are not familiar with the NPA model, the introductory chapters will bring you up to speed quickly. Next, we present twenty “case studies” that illustrate how the personality traits are transmitted. Here, you will meet Giovanni and Pania, Bogdan and Lulu, as well as King Lucifer IV and his many mistresses. Each of the cases has an instructive element, and when you are through with the illustrations, you should be in good form to do your own analysis... of yourself, your family, your significant other, and even of children who are not yet born.

by A.M. Benis, ScD, MD. You may have heard the conventional wisdom that "many, many genes" contribute to personality, so "there is no such thing as a personality type". We take... More > the contrarian view: We show that a few basic traits are inherited, and that combinations of the traits not only give rise to personality types, but they also explain WHY the types behave as they do. The underlying theory explains the concepts of narcissism, perfectionism, aggression. It clarifies the distinction between personality and temperament, as well as relationships of dominance and submission and of "morbid dependency". A vignette is included that describes a symbiotic relationship called "the power behind the throne", where the Power is a perfectionistic-aggressive individual bent on domination. The book is illustrated with caricatures of well-known individuals, and it includes a synopsis of the NPA model, referencing in particular the pioneering work of Karen Horney.

Geographic Distribution of Genetic Character Traits Based on the NPA Theory of Personality By A.M. Benis
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The NPA theory of personality, based on three genetic traits (sanguinity, perfectionism and aggression) is used to map the worldwide distribution of character traits. Presence or absence of the... More > traits gives rise to discrete character types. The model predicts stable polymorphisms of the character phenotypes that could be analyzed with the use of the classical Hardy-Weinberg concepts of gene frequencies and populations in equilibrium. Both indigenous and non-indigenous groups were typed across the world according to the three traits with the use of archival sources and information available on the internet. Our results are presented in the form of color-coded maps that depict the worldwide distribution of the character phenotypes, as well as of the three traits. The results are analyzed with respect to the "Out of Africa" concept of the ancestral migrations of Homo sapiens. Edition: ePub. Color figures, 104 pp. in printed version, maps, 25 plates, Synopsis of NPA theory.< Less
