    I agree to an extent as well about lenore. And sometimes when I read it I just wanted to throttle her when she brought out another Star Trek example. I mean, Jesus, talk about an obsessive trekkie. But I do like the detailed descriptions of the functions.

    Although I think Understanding yourself and others: an introduction to the personality type code by Linda Berens and Dario Nardi might be better at explaining the functions and how they are displayed in all of the types. (And it's shorter.) But if you read it I would recommend avoiding the goofy exercises and just reading the descriptions of the types.

    Yeah, bestfit is a good website, although I think I like the descriptions at geocities/lifexplore the best.

    Forgot to add: I like how Lenore addresses self-improvement, although basically you could say for introverts you should get out of your head more and extroverts you should do more self-examination and pretty much cover it. Also, I didn't like Keirsey all that much. He makes all NFs seem like Mother Theresa, all SPs like Picasso or Paris Hilton, all NTs like robots, and all SJs like the biggest fuddy-duddy ever. That's something I like about the dominant function description a la Lenore vs temperament a la Keirsey. The type descriptions seem more real and less like caricatures.

    I came across a book on the internet I would have liked to order that correlated different types to athletic ability. It would have been interesting to see what they had to say...

    Everything on the subject on the internet.

    I'm glad this thread is here though because I've wondered about checking out other stuff. Wonka sent me a nice list the other day.
