Theories of personality are much more than abstract ideas and constructs. They provide valuable guidelines that have helped me make better decisions and live a more fulfilling life. People who lack self-knowledge, who do not understand their real (albeit unconscious) motives and beliefs, are more likely to make bad choices that hurt themselves and others. And such individuals may reach positions of leadership, where their misguided decisions are likely to cause considerable harm. Theories of personality offer effective remedies.
