Hi all, this is my first post (I think. I've been lurking for so long I'm not entirely sure...), so I hope I'm doing everything right!
I'm fairly much a n00b when it comes to MBTI, but I'm interested in learning more. Somehow, I got the idea that I should read 'Please Understand Me' 1 or 2, as it seems to be a good starting point. I'm considering buying one of these books, but am not sure which one I should get, and was wondering if I could get your opinions?
My knowledge of the MBTI is cursory; basically I know what each of the functions stand for and have a vague, basic idea of how they work, but I would like to better understand each function. For example I'm still grappling with how sensing and intuition work, how they differ from each other, and how they are affected by being either introverted or extraverted. The other thing I don't understand at all and would like to, is the uh... hierarchy of the functions... i.e dominant, auxiliary, etc.
I know I can probably find all of this information on this forum, or elsewhere on the internet, and I have tried, but there is just so much out there, I'm completely overwhelmed by it all, particularly by the level of detail. I'm keen to have a physical version of some MBTI basics.
My initial problem was the choice between Please Understand Me I or II, since I hear that II is more detailed, which worries me, but then I don't want to be missing out on stuff if I get number I. And then it occurred to me that there may be other books which might be better for a beginner, but I wouldn't know where to start looking.
Any suggestions for the n00b?
(Wow, long post. Sorry sorry...)
