How to deal with my 3 year old daughter that has a very strong presonality!!!!

My daugter is 3 years old, turning 4 in February. She has a very strong personality and we keep on bumping heads. Some days it feels like I can scream, because she just refuses to listen. She has her way of doing things and If I dear to tell her she can not do it that way, she starts to cry. I have tried putting her in the room so that she can stop, but I promise she just keeps on crying. She cries until you stop eveything and go and pick her up. Sometimes it almost feels if she is spitefull. She nows certain things should not be done, but she will just turn around and do it anyway.
Any advice on how to handle the situation will be greatly appreciated. She is my second child. I have a 5 year old son as well, that I sometime feel sorry for, because she even try and dominate him.

learn the different personalities/temperaments. there are plenty of books on the subject. once you learn yours AND hers, it's easier to understand how to deal. it also helps with all other types of relationships.

I am strong willed and I raised a daughter who is as well. my granddaughter carried on the tradition but once you know what drives that particular personality, it's not that difficult to deal with.
