Describing the 16 major personality types identified in the work of Briggs and Myers, this landmark book shows the profound effects - on marriage, learning and career satisfaction - of a person's style of perception and judgment.
The late Isabel Briggs Myers co-authored the most widely used personality inventory in history, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
Like a thumbprint, personality type provides an instant snapshot of a person's uniqueness. Drawing on concepts originated by Carl Jung, this book distinguishes four categories of personality styles and shows how these qualities determine the way you perceive the world and come to conclusions about what you've seen. It then explains what they mean for your success in school, at a job, in a career and in your personal relationships.
