Understand Me, Understand You,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Please Understand Me: Character and Temperament Types (Paperback)
I am an INTJ, and always wondered why everyone wasn't like me. Well, it turns out that I make up less than 1% of the population, and this book was a great help in helping people to understand me, but also in giving me the information I need to realize that everyone is different, and everyone needs to be understood in a different manner. What might make total sense to an INTJ, might really hurt someone else's feelings. And getting passionate about an illogical point in an arguement completely backfires when dealing with someone like me.
Everyone is different, and this books helps to at least start defining those differences into 16 general personality types. Now, there is still a ton of differences within a single type, but getting to 1 of 16 is a great start at dealing with those around you, as well as giving them some insight into your personality as well.

I am an INTP and so is my son. For me at the age of 36 it might be little late but i am very happy when i can see and explain for my son when he asked me why he sometime felt lonely at his school, not getting many friend, not being a charming person and he is going worry of not being able to get married in the future (also he is just 11 years old). I motivated him and i advised him to wait for the time when he will go to University and got Master of PhD. He would be a professor or if he love IT he can use his talent and shine. Or I would help him to get rich in IT and e-commerce. Although i know that for INTP, money, power and vanity are not much value but I alway say "Your life will be better. Don't worry, son !" . And will refer to him "Please Understand me" when the time is appropriated. A life saver !
