S honed against some of the 20th century's greatest creative minds It would travel across the world to London Zurich Cape Town Melbourne and Tokyo; to elementary schools nunneries wellness retreats and the closed door corporate training sessions of todayDrawing from original reporting and never before published documents What’s Your Type examines nothing less than the definition of the self – our attempts to grasp categorise and uantify our personalities Surprising and absorbing the book like the test at its heart considers the timeless uestion What makes you you. My friend lent me her advance copy and I finished it in a weekThe Personality Brokers is the fascinating history behind the Myers Briggs test and the mother daughter duo who created it The book was incredibly well written and well researched and raised interesting uestions about personality psychology which interest me greatly I also loved how it delves into the history of the test how it weaves together the psychological frameworks of Jung and the made up parts by Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs and the widespread use of it across institutions like the military universities and churches It uncovers the corporations behind the type indicator test and how they strive to protect the legitimacy of it What I loved most about the book was how it challenged this widely accepted personality test and shows how it s flawed People who love and live by Myers Briggs may not like to read about it but it s an important book and it s written for those people as well An overall fascinating read that will serve as a great talking points in future Myers Briggs conversations
