    Default RIP David Keirsey!

    Just ran across this on FB:

    http://blog.keirsey.com/2013/08/14/my-father

    Though not accepted as "official" in MBTI, he really had the greatest impact on type by increasing discussion with his temperament groups.
    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

    May David Keirsey rest in peace.
    He was a good man whose work has facilitated a lot of understanding between the people of this world.
    I wish his family and friends strength and peace.

    Yes, I think the first "MBTI" book I read was Keirsey's, although it wasn't actually MBTI per se. It colored my views for the first few years I was examining typology, and I gave a few copies to friends.

    RIP. My first exposure to typology was the original Please Understand Me, and it's still my preferred point of view relating to such things. Pressing the point that everyone's different, and providing some variant (if somewhat stereotypical) examples of different people's thought patterns and preferences was a big deal for me at the time (I was 16, I think). It both made me feel a little more understood, and gave me at least a little insight into what the people around me considered important.

    I know a lot of people even here aren't really big fans of his. But I think he did a lot of good in his time on earth. I hope he knew that.

    Whatever I thought of his work, I am sure he helped people along the way, so rest in peace.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    RIP. With many of us I agree he was a profound influence, his books conveyed a certain perspective of the type system that continues to color my understanding to this day.

    Let him rest in peace, but his influence on typology belongs in the ash heap of history. The man ought to be remembered for his dedication to promoting mutual understand between people of disparate temperaments, but the theoretical framework of "Please Understand Me" should be confined to the museum of intellectual history along with Freud's theory of the unconscious and magical remedies for madness.

    When someone I hate dies, I know who I want to speak at the funeral.
