5Comprehensive and Concise---Perfect for Organizations
By A Customer
I found this booklet to be of extreme value compared to similar products. I used to buy a whole text to give to my clients before this came along. It contains some of the best material I have seen on the Myers-Briggs types. The fact that it has so many great contributors is a value-add. I would recommend this booklet to anyone using Myers-Briggs types in a professional setting. The booklet covers multiple topics including leadership, career development, creativity, stress, problem-solving, personal development, and learning. At first I was overwhelmed with the page count for the types, but after reading the content I was pleasantly excited and couldn't wait to show them to my customers. The book also includes some interesting new information about a new model---MTR-i---which is a team role model based on Jungian type. A very good value for the low price.

5A Great Desk Reference
By A Customer
This is a perfect book for someone to keep as a desk reference for the personality types. I found the information very valuable even though I own most other books on this subject. It is an outstanding reference for the types in an organizational setting.

5Excellent Overview
By Ernest L. Stech
This publication provides an excellent overview of the application of the Jungian personality types in organizations. It requires prior understanding of the 16 personality types. The information on leadership was particularly useful for me as a writer and scholar in the field of leadership.
