    2) Another thing that I don't get are the archetypes. What are they?
    MBTI archetypes are "clumps" of type (four groupings x four types in each grouping = 16 types) and generally follow two patterns:

    Original MBTI = xSTx, xSFx, xNTx, xNFx or otherwise ST, SF, NT, NF
    Keirsey = NT, NF, SJ, SP

    Keirsey believes that the Sensor types are more accurately grouped in terms of general motivations by using the J/P factor rather than T/F directly. Check his site for more explanation.

    There are pro's and con's to either style of grouping.

    3) From where I could learn more about cognitive styles (literature, links etc.)

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

    Jen, I thought the archetypes were Jung's character projections of the mind. As far as that relates to MBTI, each function has a character in our conscious and unconscious minds, e.g. the dominant function is the Hero, the auxiliary is the Wise Parent, etc. and that contributes to how we view ourselves and others.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Thanks for the links!

    I'm familiar with Keirsey's temerament types because I started my MBTI journey by reading throught Please Understand me I & II. I'm not familiar with original ST, SF,NT and NF so I'll have to study more about those. I just bought the book Gifts Differing so maybe that will clarify the original MBTI things for me.

    Anyhow I feel that Keirsey's temperament styles have been useful for me when typing people.

    A book called Building Blocks of Personality Type was mentioned in Beren's site. Is that book any good?

    I wasn't sure what the OP was trying to ask for, and I found all the concepts asked for rather 'clumped together' when I was looking around, so I was guessing that the angle I was giving them was the angle they wanted. I might have been wrong, though. Your links should be helpful, if they were looking more for your angle on things.
