About the Book
If you’re like other Personality Junkie readers, you recognize the value and importance of knowing who you are. After all, who you understand yourself to be—your sense of self and identity—influences everything; it’s the compass we use to navigate life. And because your personality type is an integral part of who you are, knowing and understanding your type (e.g., INFJ) is essential and can furnish much needed direction in a world of seemingly infinite options.
Unfortunately, many people remain unsure of their true type, often feeling “stuck in the middle” between two or three types. My True Type was carefully researched and written to address this concern, equipping you with the knowledge you need to clarify and better understand your personality type, including your type’s preferences and functions. If you want to know your type (and yourself) more clearly and confidently, this book is for you.
“Drill Down Your Type”
“This book will help you drill down and better understand your own personality type. It also provides a lot of comparing and contrasting that helps illustrate the difference(s) between similar personality types. For instance, if you’re not sure if you’re an INTP or an INFP, the book provides many different examples and avenues by which you can clear up any type confusion.”
“After studying the MBTI and Keirsey for years, I thought I’d pretty much read it all, but this book gave me a fresh perspective and a deeper understanding of the overall concept of temperament. It explained some of the things I had found confusing like why some introverts seem like extraverts due to their auxiliary functions. A must-read book for students of temperament…”
“I am a budding student of typology, and have read a lot of the available literature on Jungian typology. This book had a profound influence on me and on my understanding of the Jungian functions. Many other works I have explored are burdened with superfluous information, which, especially for an autodidact trying to get an accurate grip on typology, can cause needless delays and confusion. This book drills right to the essence of each function, explaining them with breadth, insight and concision…I consider it “required reading” for the typology enthusiast.”
“Clarified My Type”
“I have read just about every MBTI book out there, and even the most useful ones generally review the same basic information in different ways. This one actually added new information and new interpretations that I hadn’t seen before. In the past, I’ve gone back and forth between two types that seemed to fit me equally well, but this book made it clear, first of all, why that doesn’t really make sense, and second, why I was confused. This really clarified my type for me and helped me in a job choice I was making. The information is detailed and definitely worth the price.”
