    Not asking you to give away all $129 worth of trade secrets here, just asking for a general overview of her methods and suggestions with perhaps a couple of abbreviated examples.
    Agreed.

    Obviously this is her livelihood but some of us with limited funds might like to be enlightened as well.

    No. That is unethical and wrong.

    I doubt it. Wouldn't think typology practitioners would be raking in a lot of cash at all. Speciality publications like this don't generally make a lot of money.

    I will be happy to. It'll be after I finish this mural project that I'm working on but I definitely intend to take the course.

    I don't think so.

    Although I know about cost and prices.....everything is worth something and some things are worth everything (if you listen to particular individuals that is) I just can't perceive this as being worth it. It just seems like getting money for shit-all while influencing people into the world of pseudo-psychology and to me that's unethical....although a lot of people make money for little effort all the time, which isn't bad in itself from my perspective, but this is like faith-healing to me as opposed to, say, a trite app which doesn't add anything of use but also doesn't harm....unless you count those addicting micro-transaction ones...what was my point again?


    In any case, she's got a finger in your arse-wallet, get her finger out your arse. But it might just be my irrational dislike of her, I'm not going to rule that out, in fact you can read all about it on my new website, but there is an entry fee.

    Ok I'll go at this in a different angle, what does she provide that other tests don't? In what way can the worth of that price be translated into the worth of the course? How is what she presents different from say....buying one of innumerable books on the same topic, explaining the same things with examples that don't cost a fraction of that price? You don't have be too 'unethical' with what you reveal just give a gist like others have requested.

    I don't think she would miss the money, think of it as charity towards the typology community.

    I guess my moral compass is more flexible, morality can be dropped or picked up where necessary.

    A good example of Si would be when an individual can recall fact based detail with incredible accuracy which appears to be photographic memory. I worked with an attorney once who could recall an entire file he worked on to the extent that he could tell you exactly which book and page specific relevant information was located. And I am talking about the kind of information which most people would have had to take multiple notes to keep track of, it was almost as if his mind was organized like a filing cabinet and you requested a random piece of information from one of a hundred files in the cabinet and his mind flipped through the cabinets found the file flipped halfway through it and found the exact reference in a matter of seconds. It was really quite amazing (at least to me).

    I haven't seen a book that does a good job of helping you to evaluate someone's type by how they interact with you - with multiple video examples of each cognitive function.

    It doesn't seem that expensive to me for what you get. It's an 8 hour course. It is obvious that she put a lot of effort into making it and I think the content is excellent.

    Is this going to appear on the praise section of her website? But OK I get it, you've done it and respected the quality, I can't really ask more than that.

    Well actually I can, but pretending I can't sounds better.
