There are as many personal styles as there are men, but only four major power
styles. Every man who is in the center of life, rather than on the sidelines belongs
to one of these four groups. He has more points of similarity – regardless
of his profession, age, or physique – with members of that style category
than with men in others. Select the power group that comes closest to illustrating
how you see [or would like to see] yourself, then we will help you put your own
style to work for you.
