Consult the definitive text on MBTI® type

Every year over 2.5 million people take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, the most widely used personality measure in history. Gifts Differing describes the ground-breaking insights embodied in the MBTI® inventory and explains its many practical applications. Distinguishing four categories of personality preferences - Extraversion-Introversion, Sensing-Intuition, Thinking-Feeling, and Judging-Perceiving - this book details how different combinations of these qualities determine the way we perceive the world and how we respond to and interact with it. Type tables show how type preferences correlate with occupational interests, and clear descriptions of the sixteen types illustrate how the different functions interact.
