Would you rather celebrate with a crowd or just a few friends? Focus on the facts or get an overall impression? Establish a schedule or keep your options open? Derived from the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Typecasting examines the four pairs of preferences that are fundamental to every personality type: Extraversion/Introversion, Sensing/Intuition, Thinking/Feeling, and Judging/Perceiving. Here Otto Kroeger and Janet Thuesen provide a self-evaluation that can be used to determine your own type, and to analyze and evaluate other people as well. Knowing the 16 types, they suggest, can lead to greater effectiveness in communication, and harmony within a family or business group.
