Dive Deeper into Your Type!

16 personality types books

In order to know what we should do or how we should live, we must first know who we are. This compels us to understand ourselves and to clarify our identity. This “search for self” is also what leads many of us to personality typology. We sense that understanding our type might give us insight into ourselves, as well as the role we might play in the theater of life.

Unfortunately, many personality books provide only a superficial understanding of the types. Seeing only the outermost shell of the types, they fail to capture many of their nuances and complexities.

This book is different. Not only does it explore the conscious and more overt features of the types, but devotes considerable time to examining what is happening on a deeper level. If you hope to better understand the intricacies of your type, as well as your path toward personal growth, this book is for you.

What's Included:

  • In-depth personality profiles for each of the 16 types
  • Examination of each type's four functions, including the dynamics and interplay among them
  • Insight into each type's inferior function struggles and potential solutions
  • Clear explanations of type theory and its implications for self-understanding
  • Exploration of paths to type development and integration

What People Are Saying...

"Best Book on the Subject. Illuminating."

A.C.​

"I've read a lot about Myers Briggs personality types and this is the best book that I have ever found on the subject...I really learned a lot more about my own type and also my girlfriend’s type. Very helpful! I also found the quality of the writing to be clear and illuminating. The book took me to a deeper level of understanding of type dynamics and for the most part, without losing me."

"Useful Information I Haven't Read Elsewhere."

Nick M.

"I’ve been studying type on and off for a couple of years now, but I’ve never delved that seriously into all the type functions. This book really lays it out well… Overall, it is excellent and at just the right price."

"A Clear & Thorough Approach to Type."

M. Greer

"This is an excellent book on personality type. It explains type theory in a way that is accessible and close to the original intent of Jung’s theory. While most books explain type as a mere sum of the four letters, this book emphasizes the functions and their ordering…If you want a clear, thorough, and perhaps the best holistic approach to type, search no longer, you have found your book."

"The Most Insightful Type Descriptions."

Jim S.

"These are the most accurate and insightful type descriptions I have encountered to date. I especially appreciated the profile describing my own type (INFJ). It alone made the book worthwhile."
