This book presents the concept of personality types and explicates at length about the four main categories of human temperament. The four primary personality types and their various subtypes are explored at some length. Special attention is given to how different personalities relate in the various roles of children, spouses, and leaders. Temperament diversity is shown to profoundly effect how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. Religious groups striving to incorporate a wide diversity into their membership, such as the Baha'i communities, would be well served to learn how to appropriately address and fully appreciate this aspect of human variety. An updated version of this book by David Keirsey, "Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence", is also available.
