If you want to understand the fundamentals of using and interpreting the MBTI this book is an EXCELLENT resource. The author tackles advanced concepts, and the information contained is an excellent condensation of important information you need to know to use the instrument ethically.

However, many (perhaps the majority) of professional MBTI practitioners do NOT endorse the use of the instrument for recruiting or other human resource practices (except for fostering personal understanding) as ethical. One of the myriad reasons for this is that type DOES NOT EQUAL competencies. This reductionistic view of the study of psychological or brain types is harmful and shows a sincere lack of depth of understanding of the previous reviewer's knowledge. And it adds to the mistrust individuals have because a wonderful tool for pursuing self-understanding and life satisfaction is used in these questionably ethical practices that tend to stereotype people.

Any "type" is capable of exhibiting a wide variety of competencies and is capable of performing excellently in a wide variety of professions. Having different types engaged in the work of different careers adds to the richness of any workplace landscape.

I am a career counselor with over a dozen years experience working with people and helping them find life and career satisfaction from informed and responsible usage of this body of knowledge. Prior to that I worked as a professional recruiter and managed professional recruiters for over 10 years.

It is a small and concise book on MBTI (step II). It is necessary to possess some foundation about MBTI in order to get benefit from it. The format of the book is more or less like a text-book. Absence of visual aids and long, complicated sentence structures makes it a little bit difficult to read..

This work is so important to understanding and working with people. I was disappointed by the disorganization and confusing read of the themes in the text. Another editi0on is warranted ASAP.

I read the chapters about how awareness of type differences can help therapists work more effectively with clients, whether individuals, couples, or families. I found much useful information and wisdom in these chapters, which comprise the second half of the book.

This book refers to forms with no examples if what the forms look like. I would recommend this book being audited.
