“If you do not want what I want, please try not to tell me that my want is wrong. Or if my beliefs are different from yours, at least pause before you set out to correct them. Or if my emotion seems less or more intense than yours, given the same circumstances, try not to ask me to feel other than I do. Or if I act, or fail to act, in the manner of your design for action, please let me be. I do not, for the moment at least, ask you to understand me. That will come only when you are willing to give up trying to change me into a copy of you.”
David Keirsey, Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence

“You want to be the first to do something. You want to create something. You want to innovate something...I often think of Edison inventing the light bulb. That's what I want to do. I want to drive over the bridge coming out of New York there and look down on that sea of lights that is New Jersey and say, `Hey, I did that!' ”
David Keirsey, Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence

“Our attempts to reshape others may produce change, but the change is distortion rather than transformation.”
David Keirsey, Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence
