    I'll vote for Lenore Thompson - best combination of depth, insight, and practicality.

    I guess none of them are very good based on the pathetic lack of votes

    I think Monkey Zoo would be a good title of a book that has yet to be written on the subject. Because really when you think about it most humans are not much different than monkeys.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    My favorite was Psychological Types. I did not like Lenore's book, and Please Understand Me 2 was good, but Keirsey should not have adopted MBTI nomenclature at all. Just leads to confusion; he bases his types on observable behavior and language, while MBTI uses the cognitive function model.

    Wasn't a fan. Basically just because I hate the functions lasagna analogy. I fucking hate lasagna.

    The amount of members who have actually read any of these books is probably pathetic too. Far easier to take an online test and then be a pro.

    They pretty much all suck equally.

    In my opinion, Thomson's is for sure the best. I've never read clearer or more refreshing descriptions of the types. Everything about the INFJ description resonated with me. And it's great for explaining unhealthy types and the ways one can engage in all of his or her functions. I think if anyone is skeptical about typology, then they should read this one.

    Until I read Thompson, I always thought Gifts Differing was the best. Anybody else a fan of this book?
