Synopsis: Drawing from Jungian psychology and pop culture, this detailed guide to personality types will help you develop a deeper, more meaningful sense of your truest self

For Jung, knowing your type was essential to understanding yourself: a way to measure personal growth and change. But his ideas have been applied largely in the areas of career and marital counseling, so type has come to seem predictive: a way to determine your job skills and social abilities.

This book reclaims type as a way to talk about people's inner potential and the choices they make in order to honor it. Using everyday examples from popular culture—films, Star Trek, soap operas, comic strips—it describes the sixteen basic ways people come to terms with their gifts and values.

In this book you will find tools to understand:

• How your personality takes shape
• How your type reflects not only your current priorities, but your hidden potential
• How unlived possibilities are trying to get your attention
• How relationships at home and at work can help you to tap your unrealized gifts
