#InCaseYouMissedIt #ReadingList: The Art Of Speed Reading People (Barron-Tieger, 1998)

From a GREAT book on People… “The Art of Speed Reading People”… Found these excerpts online at ENotAlone.Com

“Before you begin an introduction to Personality Type, it might be helpful for you to know a bit about its history. The basic ideas behind Type are not new. In fact, they were first written about by Swiss psychologist Carl Jung more than seventy years ago.

But it was two American women, Katharine Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Myers, who were really responsible for building on, including developing the fourth type dimension, and making these ideas useful in practical ways to so many people.

One of Isabel’s major contributions to our understanding of human behavior was the development of a psychological instrument that reliably identifies sixteen distinctly different types.

She named this the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)®, and over the past several years, millions of people around the world have been introduced to the benefits of knowing about Personality Type through the MBTI®, It is routinely used in business to help managers motivate employees, develop more-productive work teams, and enhance communication.

It is also heavily used by counselors and therapists to help individuals, couples, and families understand and communicate better with each other.

Hundreds of thousands of people have found Personality Type invaluable in helping them make satisfying career choices. And these are only some of its many applications” (Barron-Tieger, 1998)
