Overview

Are you more actively interested in people and the world around you, or drawn to the inner world of ideas? Does your spouse stick to "just the facts" or look for an underlying pattern? Is there tension at work because coworkers can't seem to agree on the best way to approach a task?

Of the many explanations of why people differ from one another, the concept of psychological type has proven to be one of the most reliable and accurate. Millions of people have taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® instrument so they can learn more about their personality through psychological type.

So what do your four letter "type" preferences mean for you . . . , as well as for those with whom you interact every day? Looking at Type ®: the Fundamentals serves as the perfect resource to help answer these questions. Its clear presentation of basic concepts will acquaint you with:

• The dynamic model of personality and lifelong development
• Rich and detailed descriptions of all sixteen types
• A unique path for your personal growth and development
• Applications of type in daily life, including its role in relationships, communication, and problem solving

Looking at Type ®: the Fundamentals opens the door to the idea of the constructive use of differences. By developing a better understanding of yourself and others, you will create more satisfying relationships, learn to capitalize on your natural strengths, and find more personal success, with a heightened sense of self-worth and personal competence.
