    Default MBTI Books Worth Reading

    Well, here are the MBTI related books I already own. I use them for creating characters for fiction, and so I am always looking for an MBTI book that is helpful in that respect.

    - Type Talk at Work by Otto Kroeger, Janet M. Thuesen, and Hile Rutledge
    - Personality Type by Lenore Thomson
    - Do What You Are by Paul D. Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger
    - Type Talk by Otto Kroeger and Janet M. Thuesen
    - Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence by David Keirsey
    - The Art of Speed Reading People by Paul D. Tieger (Author), Barbara Barron-Tieger

    Beside Ourselves - Naomi Quenk (that was the 1st ed title, it was changed upon rerelease within the last few years).

    There was also a book called Reel People (I think)... where the theory based on personality disorders was used in conjunction with cinema characters to analyze and describe. It's not MBTI and probably not as useful as some of the ones listed above, but not a bad read. (I ended up watching a few movies I would have missed otherwise, because of it.)
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    That's neat. I've thought of using MBTI for fiction writing.

    I suppose that "Just My Type: Create the Relationship You've Always Wanted Using the Secrets of Personality Type" By Tieger, would be useful in that respect since it points out how various types interact with each other and what difficulties they have.

    My campus' library has a copy of Quenk's book, and it is a fascinating read. I like how it mainly talked about the ways each type's inferior functions are expressed.

    I'll look into the other book too. I am open to suggestions for anything related.
