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.

The Enigma of Short Parents Who Have Tall Children By A.M. Benis
Paperback: List Price: $11.95 $7.17 | You Save: 40%
Prints in 3-5 business days
For decades, geneticists have been puzzled by families where both of the parents are short, or of normal stature, but some of the children — even all of the children — are tall. This book... More > presents a solution to the enigma, and it comes from an unlikely source: a theory of personality based on genetic traits. It shows that a simple mechanism, based on classical genetics, can explain some very complicated families where there are short parents, but very tall children alongside of children of normal stature. The author uses case examples to derive the solution to the puzzle. Here you will meet Sylvester and Wendy, Yevgeny who works in the Kremlin, and the Estonian sea captain, Feliks. The illustrative examples show how the dissimilarity of stature in families can have a precise genetic cause. The cause is shown to come from both the father’s and mother’s side of the family, and is not due to recessive genes or to some vagabond gene from one side of the family.

Geographic Distribution of Genetic Character Traits Based on the NPA Theory of Personality By A.M. Benis
Paperback: $9.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
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 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 types, 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.

Prints in 3-5 business days
by A. M. Benis, Sc.D., M.D. This book brings together 147 evocative images that illustrate the essential elements of the NPA model of personality. Particular attention is given to gestures, poses... More > and behaviorisms. Personality types are illustrated with the use of caricatures of well-known individuals and images of historical figures, where you will meet individuals as diverse as Mary Lincoln, Angela Merkel and Rasputin. Topics include narcissism, perfectionism, aggression, dominance and submissiveness, inversions, as well as conditions such as the autistic savant, Down's syndrome and panic disorder. A chapter of images is devoted to the evolutionary origins of personality traits and to their geographic distribution. For readers not acquainted with the NPA model, a synopsis of the basic theory is included in the Appendix. For those interested in a novel theory of personality based on genetic traits, this book would serve as a fine introduction. Paperback, 196 pp., 138 plates., maps, glossary.< Less
