    Default What are the best books on MBTI types?

    I'm looking for good, thorough books on Meyers Briggs types so I can learn more. Any recommendations?

    Please Understand Me by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates (1984). [MBTI also known Myers-Briggs Typology Index] Professor Keirsey is an NT and has written extensively on the Myers Briggs Typology Index. His Please Understand Me book sold two million copies. It was also used by me at two different universities as part of required reading. It was based on 40 years of clinical research. I find the writing style of Professor Keirsey very much to my liking. Though he is an NT, his writing style is very metaphorical. I also enjoy his entire series on the subject of the Myers Briggs Typology Index. The books are well written and quite illuminating.

    I found the coolest one, it's called "Life Types."
