|Review: Since I got the book, I've been nearly unable to put it down. This is a wealth of information, but almost too much, which will take a while to process and integrate. There was a link on the page to request your type by submitting a picture. When you do so, you are then asked to buy his book directly from the author (rather than amazon) to get the consult. Now I realize that's a great deal, even though the price is higher than on amazon. |
Another quandry about the book is that I have spent 25 years using MBTI with clients. Since the premise of this book is to go to the sources before Myers-Briggs, and to redefine most of the categories, I almost feel like it causes a loss of confidence in an incredible existing tool. Granted I have always known the limitations of the MBTI, as a subjective measure. But it has had great utility for me in my work. This new material will certainly keep me thinking, probably for years. (I don't disagree with the basis of his redefinitions.) As a part of my second consult, he already pointed me in some good directions to use this material to help me work better with clients.
The addition of motion recognition is fascinating. I do appreciate that this method introduces beginning with what is actual in your face and movement, rather than what you perceive to be your preferences. I will be curious to see what we are doing with this material in 10 years.
