  1. Always good to hear about another book on Personality Types.
    The 16 Types are fascinating. My favorite book on them is “Life Types” by Hirsch & Kummerow. Amazon.com has it. Very informative and explained simply. Lots of good details.

    The frustration for me has always been when 2 or 3 Types seem like they are 85% true, but there’s always 1 or 2 things that are waaayy off.

    There’s more: These 1-word descriptions of each type that we often see. I think these are doing more damage than good. People look at them and OOOOOH, we get to be a “Visionary” if we’re an ENTP. Or most CEO’s are ENTJ’s and we wanna be that cuz it’s so cool to be in charge and project commanding leadership. Or maybe you want recognition for how caring you are so it’d be cool to be an ISFJ. All this is bad. We shouldn’t know, ahead of time. It skews the results and finding your accurate type. Same with picking the same type as anyone famous. My opinion.

    On youtube, type in Living My Purpose and (4-letter type). This guy Mike Adams (not me) gives good info.

    One more thing, IMO, “functions” in Myers-Briigs personality types, are seriously over-emphasized. I know I am very much in the minority here, but who even talks about the 4-letters anymore?!? It’s all bogged-down and overly-involved with Introverted Intuition, Extroverted Sensing, etc…sooo much so, that it nearly might as well be a whole new system. Again, the Book Life Types seems pretty solid and informative to me. –theOwl30 at: wordpressowl.wordpress.com
