Irini Rockwell offers a brief introduction to one interpretation of maitri, the mandala, and energy. She presents just enough about Buddhism to arouse interest, but focuses primarily on the concepts of these five energies and how they relate to personality, emotions, and practice. Being nearly sated with personality theories, I'm happy to report the dimensions of mandala appear highly orthogonal to other common schemes. Relative to others, this approach also gives more emphasis to leveraging all the types rather than compartmentalizing the individual into a few tidy little categories.
