Interesting read. Informative but found I already do a lot of these things naturally. Bottom line people that are able to recognize patterns, adapt and have strong belief in self will be more likely to survive. However I would recommend reading this as there may be information to learn. Knowone knows everything and if you already do the things mentioned in the book which there is more than I mentioned but those are the key factors and most common attributes; it would nevertheless be a good review.

As an educator, I am witnessing a strong and alarming trend towards students lacking grit, resilience, and a survivor mindset. The fear of failure is crippling, and when things go bad, too many people see themselves as victims instead of survivors. In this book, Siebert shares insights into the minds of people who survive and those who become victims. If you are a parent, educator, manager, or anyone who is in a position to help, or even better understand the survivor mindset, this book is a must read. This isn’t “power of positive thinking” hokum. Siebert’s explanations are built in the science of the personality. Whether you are looking to make positive changes in yourself or you want to be able to understand and guide others, “The Survivor Personality” is worth reading.

Disappointed by this book. Expected more of a research-based text authored by a PhD, but it seemed more like a generic self help book written at a young comprehension level with vague, universally applicable techniques that most people already do naturally. I also found the chapter flow and organization to be confusing and hard to follow.

If you have a sense of adventure and like to experience new things then this book is for you. Creative "risk taking" may be the secret to a fulfilling life. The author first became interested in survivors when he was serving in the US Army as a paratrooper. Later he expanded his interests to include survivors in all activities of life. In the rapidly changing world that we are living in this book will become your own survival guide and show you how to turn disadvanges to advantages. As Helen Keller said,"Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all".

This little book is an enjoyable read full of interesting insight. The author conducted research on this topic over many decades, interviewing survivors and observing their traits; this book is a very useful distillation of his experiences. It is not just a self-help book.

Among the topics covered: typical characteristics of survivors, how to analyze their survival strategies, how to deal with issues of conflicting personalities and team dynamics. The relationship between survival instinct and leadership is also explored. Illustrating all of these areas, the book is full of inspiring case histories. Some of the stories may be familiar (e.g. the anecdote about Disney), but there should be plenty of new and surprising material for any reader.

One gets the sense, quite early in the book, that this is not merely a list of things to do to become a survivor. Rather, the author's strategy is to help the reader recognize the traits he/she already has, and develop those. Supplementing that, the reader is given tips on how to inherit strategies from successful survivors.

The following readers may benefit most from this book: students in leadership classes; psychology students; student advisors and teachers... and anyone who knows substantial adversity. If you haven't experienced a major challenge to your physical and/or mental well-being, then the book may not engage you as effectively. I used it as an informal text for a course on survival and found that some of my students couldn't connect to it, simply because they hadn't yet faced an issue of survival. Key to the author's zen-like approach is that you learn through your own experiences, so... if your life has been smooth sailing so far then the book simply may not ring any bells... yet. At least for me (~20 years older than my students), the book rang plenty of bells!

I deduct one star because I find many of the illustrations confusing- unnecessarily so. Also, I suspect that today's readers would value more questionnaire-type material and ways for them to evaluate their progress in understanding the concepts. There are a few homework-like assignments in the book, and they are helpful; I'd simply like to see more of that. Also, perhaps it is unfair to expect teaching aids / talking points in a book like this, but... the topic is so apt for college-age students, it'd be helpful to have some of these built into the book.

I recommend this book highly.

Why do some people seem to make it through the toughest times and live to smile about it? What are their secrets? How can we learn to be like them? This book presents stories that illustrate traits and behaviors (optimism, objectivity, humor, persistence) that worked for those facing a wide range of challenges... natural or man-made disasters, life-threatening sickness, etc. An easy-reading, inspirational support for someone facing their own trouble as well as resource for those working with such individuals.

An excerpt from the Seibert title was included in reading for a graduate course.
At the time I opted to read his book and benefitted from the insights he offered.
It intrigues me that many can endure adversity without being broken.
With a personal challenge to meet, Dr. Seibert's Survivor Personality was appropriate to review for encouragement.
