Read in February, 2003

If you're ever curious about what motivates people to behave and respond in different manners this system of personality typification is an interesting alternative to the Jung, Freud, and others out there. When you've read enough of this stuff you come to realize that most are the same, they just call it something different.

Still, I like Riso's approach for the most part. No book is the be-all, end-all of personality traits but this books is fun and interesting to read if you have an open mind. A fun use of this book is to go online with friends and find an Enneagram test; then read up on why Jim Bob always has to go against the crowd (Individualist.)
