This books uses the Meyer-Briggs personality indicators and applies them to children from birth to adolescence. For each of the personality types there is advice on how to deal with potential difficulties and also a summary page.

The book does not use a questionnaire to help identify the types but describes each of the four opposing aspects that make up a type: extroversion/introversion, sensing/intuiting, judging/perceiving, feeling/thinking. From each of these description, you chose the characteristic that fits your child and then look up the relevant description.

I found it quite hard to type my children but the book was useful none-the-less, especially in the introjection it facilitated resulting in increased understanding of my children.
