Very helpful in helping me understand some things about the MBTI I was uncertain about.
Some people collect kitschy religious objects and use them to connect to a spiritual realm Some people read self help books and use them to convince themselves that they re going to turn their lives around I read about personality type What can I say it s a sickness But in all seriousness, for some of us the Jungian MBTI concept of personality is a revelation that on some level explains pretty much all of human behavior I used to puzzled by why I loved to spend hours walking or doing simple manual labor in order to daydream I mean develop my ideas or why I could read literature and understand or excel at college testing it but fall apart at the DMV my personal idea of hell, right up there with filling out forms will sitting at the hospital But no All has been revealed to me, and it could be to you if you wo The sections explaining common mistyping errors are particularly useful.
Nice read to dig deeper beyond the basic 16 personalities according to Meyer Briggs, understanding yourself even by digging into the functional stacks.
It took me a long time to read this book, but you have to be in a certain frame of mind to absorb information it s a difficult place to get to than novel reading, at least for me.
I ve always loved Myers Briggs, objections be damned, and wrote a 30 page paper for my undergrad History of Psych class on Jungian personality typing I can t begin to say I ve memorized all the info from this book even in a broad format, but I took a lot of notes and hopefully can look over things again sometime the book, I got from the library It was nice to examine the functions which is something I hadn t really looked into before It was also fun to do the clarifier quizzes at the back though I ve known my type for years and years and always get the same result ISTJ , I love doing questionnaires and examining myself for the questions they ask.
This is an excellently written book.
Main stream media has picked up personality typing and unfortunately, has oversimplified it I, for one, did not know about the orientation of functions How, for example, feelers can differ greatly in how they experience feeling based on the stack position and orientation Perhaps this is why I always have been uncomfortable about typing This book has made it easy to understand MBTI without compromising its nuances.
Great book for people who have little prior knowledge about typing like me.
