    Default Three Books

    If a friend of yours became interested in MBTI or Jungian personality theory, and asked you for book recommendations, what would be your top three (assuming the friend is not an advanced student of typology)?

    Or more than three if you prefer, but maybe order them somehow?

    This one has awesome type descriptions written in the 1st person.. So it makes it easy to relate by understanding the language used.



    This one is great for understanding what's going on in times of stress and conflict .. extremely useful



    And the ultimate relationship guide .. which I just discovered and only really glanced at .. but is on order from amazon today

    Just starting to read Gifts Differing now (I basically worked my way back from the advanced stuff to the basics), I would say that is a good place to start, to get the basics behind the concept.
    After that, then you might move toward Keirsey to become familiar with the temperament groups.
    From there, if they got the hang of the concepts, they could move on to Lenore Thomson or Linda Berens.
    APS Profile: Inclusion: e/w=1/6 (Supine) |Control: e/w=7/3 (Choleric) |Affection: e/w=1/9 (Supine)
    Ti 54.3 | Ne 47.3 | Si 37.8 | Fe 17.7 | Te 22.5 | Ni 13.4 | Se 18.9 | Fi 27.9

    Gifts Differing, definetly. (I can't spell.)

    I would also say Keirsey and the Meyers (aren't those the authors of a few?).
    My username, untypeable, is a pun of Untouchable by Taylor Swift. I punned it because of the relationship of my previous inabilities to be typed.
    I don't own my profile pic or avatar (I wish I did ), yada yada yada...
