Summary

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used psychological indicator in the world. Millions of people take the test annually. Now a family therapist explains this fascinating system of ideas to the public in a way that is entertaining and easy to absorb.Based on the work of Carl Jung, the MBTI is a system that discusses people?s individual preferences on four basic scales: how they relate to the world, take in information, make decisions, and manage their lives. Renee Baron takes on the complexity of the sixteen personality types and makes them accessible so the general reader can comprehend them, find their own type, and use the knowledge to enrich their own lives. She presents information about individual strengths and weaknesses along with suggestions for personal growth and awareness. Insightful, helpful, and encouraging, What Type Am I? is the only user-friendly guide to the MBTI?and an eminently useful step in helping individuals appreciate, and apply their strength, to work, love, and life. Baron has co-authored two bestselling books: Are You My Type, Am I Yours and The Eneagram Made Easy

Author Biography
