I've been interested in the applications of the Myers-Briggs/Jungian personality matrix since the 1980s, and so started with Part Four: Relationships in Balance, in which Ms Johnston looks at how personality types function at work, in the family, and in marriage. I expected to be informed, as one usually is in a science popularization, but did not expect how often Ms Johnston's words caused me to see incidents and relationships I'd observed over the years in a new light. I'm going to reread this section again before going to the beginning to understand the underlying science and see how the charming drawings I noticed in flipping through the book will fit in. Oh -- and Ms Johnston has whole sections on the various personality parts in literature! But after jumping first to dessert, I am determined to do the rest of the book in proper order. :-)
Johnston's system allows for a much more useful understanding of how personalities balance, and--potentially--methods for recognizing or even helping those that do not. The research and presentation are interesting, and each chapter offers new insights.
The book is worth the price just for her unique take on personal dominance. Her notion of "soul dominance" and "horizon dominance" were truly intriguing.
