Maureen Kelly (author, Myers Briggs® Consultant, Yoga teacher) believes that we all have within us...a grape. Well, metaphorically speaking that is. Whether that happens to be a Merlot, a Cabernet, a Champagne or a Pinot Noir is dependent on some genetic wiring as well as our environment.
In her book, Wine Types - Discover Your Inner Grape, she takes a light-hearted look at a serious subject: communication. "The ripple effect that can spread when we make the effort to understand one another as well as our own personal motivations can't be underestimated."
Wine Types includes an assessment to give you an idea where your innate strengths lie (i.e. which grape resides within...), information on how you 'blend' with other wine types and what we can learn from each other.
"A lot of 'a-ha' moments occur when we find out that we are a Merlot and that person we married is a Pinot Noir. NOW I get it. And not that our type is an excuse for specific behavior, but compromise becomes a lot easier when we understand the reasoning behind the actions. As frustrating as they can be.... ( A sense of humor doesn't hurt, either.)"
From the moment we arrive on this earth until that time we depart, we're all on a journey...and it can be a joyous ride or a struggle depending on your perspective. So why not invest the time and energy on finding out what brings that joy into your life and then share the glow. Maybe even over a nice glass of wine...and a good book.
