    This is too negative. Life doesn't have to be all unicorns and shit, but.... Wait, correction.. life is unicorns AND shit. Not just shit, as this "typology" would indicate.

    Nonconforming/Antisocial

    Reminds me of the NPA personality theory a bit, where there is a placement and emphasis on negative connotations to personality. Having said that probably shy/avoidant too.

    Shy/avoidant. Definitely.

    I dunno about those subtypes though. None of them made sense to me.

    Nonconforming/Antisocial
    Agreed.

    A mix of these:

    Assertive/Sadistic
    Conscientious/Compulsive

    There are 15 types, each of which overlap with one or more personality disorders of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). Each type ranges from a healthy, mild version (a personality style) to a dysfunctional version (a personality disorder). The types are:

    Cooperative/Dependent
    Sociable/Histrionic
    Confident/Narcissistic
    Nonconforming/Antisocial
    Assertive/Sadistic
    Conscientious/Compulsive
    Skeptical/Negativistic
    Retiring/Schizoid
    Shy/Avoidant
    Pessimistic/Melancholic
    Aggrieved/Masochistic
    Eccentric/Schizotypal
    Capricious/Borderline
    Suspicious/Paranoid
    Exuberant/Hypomaniac
    If I had to choose one on the list it would be Eccentric/Schizotypal, however none of them is really a great fit for me. I've encountered this personality system before, and while I found it to be interesting at first, I ultimately don't think it is too useful.

    The best (in my opinion) personality system that I've encountered has been developed by psychologist/PhD Donald Clifton. You can learn all the basics about it from the book, "Now, Discover Your Strengths". Instead of finding out what is wrong with a person, which is what most of psychology does, Clifton focuses on finding out what is right with a person. Also it's a lot more specific than any of the other systems I've encountered which is a big plus.

    I have read this book and I agree that it's a very good way of characterizing people.
