10 Pearson Learning Solutions Ten Commandments 1.Life tends to support our preferences, making us even more distrustful of our nonpreferences. 2.Your strength maximized becomes your liability. 3.Typewatching is only a theory; it takes real life to validate it. 4.Typewatching is only an explanation; it is never an excuse. 5.The whole is greater then the sum of its parts. 6.Typewatching is only one lens through which to view human personality. 7.To be effective, typewatching must begin with yourself before you apply it to others. 8.Typewatching is easier said (or thought about) then done. 9.Don’t blame everything on your opposite. 10.Typewatching can’t solve everything.
