A couple of years ago I decided to add to my professional toolbox and become certified to administer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. People Types and Tiger Stripes was strongly recommended as preliminary reading before attending the certification course, and it was a worthy read. While people often seem to behave in random and varied ways, of course we all know that there are underlying causes and patterns to the behavior.

The MBTI is a well-regarded, extensively research, instrument for uncove
I actually found this book more helpful than Isabel Briggs-Myers' Gifts Differing. It lays out the basics of type in an organized, interesting way, as well as applying them to education. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in type, not just educators!
Gordon Lawrence was a professor at University of Gainesville when Isabel Myers was formalizing the MBTI. He immediately saw the usefulness of the type framework in education--and this book records the wisdom he gained through decades of research and application. And, it's full of practical tools and information. If you've never seen type as useful, read this and then wish your teachers had read it!
Great personality indicator book. I use it with my students, in teacher trainings, and to analyze my own relationships. I originally inherited this from my step-father who used it in cooperate development training. Myers-Briggs compatiable.
