    Well it's official, my friends have dubbed me the "mommy friend". But I'm also the baby friend because I'm the youngest of us so I don't know how that works. Still I think it's cute

    No, the solution is to dance. Because without music, life would be a mistake. So lay down some sick beats, and dance monkey dance!

    Just looking for a protector, God never reached out in time, There's love, that is a saviour, But that ain't no love of mine
    My Love it kills me slowly, Slowly I could die, And when she sleeps she hears the blues, Sees shades of black and white

    Does the book Please Understand Me get any better? The first chapter or so seems extremely general, to the point of miscorrelating the trees with the forest. Any other suggestions? My library is incredibly sparse. Gifts differing?

    My humble opinion, which does not represent the opinion of the Mod staff at large:

    STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM KEIRSEY.

    All of his writing is too general, to the point of stereotyping. It may be useful to some, but in my experience it is far too shallow and misdirected to be of much use relative to others' writing.

    My favorite MBTI book is "Was That Really Me?" by Naomi Quenk. You could also try some Jung if you wanted, but it can be dense.

    Get that book if you're INFP. They're special snowflakes. Btw, author Isabel Briggs Myers was INFP. Inherent bias? Of course not. She was above that sort of thing.

    Yeah I was wondering if it was just me, it seemed the first chapter was sort of just obvious blanket statements filled with holes, and just really common sense based (the parts that were actually sensical). The individual descriptions of the four temperaments, slightly less general, slightly more biased. Don't think my library has Was that Really Me, but I read excerps online as I just recently saw that thread.I would love to find a consolidated copy and really dig into it, might have to consider scrounging up some change. Any thoughts on Myers?

    It might end up being down to Myers or Keirsey, both, neither. Those books are the only ones even remotely related to personality type theory, shoved in between a few about autism. The implications of that... Anyways, is Myers really that biased, to the point of not being worth the time to read?
