    One thought on “Personality Types: Jung's Model of Typology”

    1. An indispensable book for those on the path of self-mastery and self-discovery.Only found it yesterday, but for the life of me I couldn't put it down until I finished.Now I think it's useless if I set out to summarize what I've learned since it will easily be liable for misunderstanding—and more importantly, without me bordering on my own personal peculiarities and normal tendencies with regard to my own personality.Suffice it to say that I've always been an introvert—as any keen eye would t [...]

    2. The best explanation to Jung's typology. Concise, neat, quick, brilliant. The last part about Supper gives it that different thing.

    3. For those who are interested in Jungian personality theory (which the (in)famous Myers-Briggs personality system is loosely based on) this book is definitely worth reading. It's a quick and easy read that points out what Jung actually thought about personality type. It's fascinating to see the differences between Jung and MBTI, and this book reminds me of why I'm not a true believer in either (although both can be very helpful, I think).

    4. This book was extremely helpful for my research project on MBTI. The detailed descriptions of the Jungian types were fascinating and it also made it easier for me to pick out the differences between the Jungian types and the MBTI system. The only thing I would say is that is seemed a little biased toward the introverted attitude.

    5. Fascinerend gedachtegoed; een feest van herkenning over jezelf en anderen.Acht persoonlijkheidsvariatiesJung onderscheid twee persoonlijkheidsoriëntaties (introversie en extraversie) en vier functies of orientatiewijzen (denken, zintuigelijk voelen, intuïtie en psychologisch voelen). Door deze te combineren krijg je acht persoonlijkheidsvariaties. Intro-extraversieBij introversie is de energie gericht op de innerlijke wereld, het subject is het belangrijkst. Bij extraversie is de interesse voo [...]

    6. Complicated Stuff for Complicated People (the entire Human Race)Daryl Sharp's 'Personality Types' is an excellent way of being introduced to C.G. Jung's Model of Typology. A brief list of areas explored include, the two personality attitudes - Introversion and Extroversion - and four functions or modes of orientation -Thinking - Intuition - Sensation - Feeling.I once attended a workshop where we, the participants, had previously undergone a few psychological test, including the Jung-Myers-Briggs [...]

    7. Before picking up this book, I have read dozens of online articles regarding each of the cognitive functions that are present in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). However, there are a few explanations in this book that I have not read anywhere on the net. Even so, I don’t think the online descriptions are lacking. I just think that this book serves as an extension to what I have read on the net. But I believe there is another book that explains each of the functions thoroughly and I have [...]

    8. Concise description of Jung's theory of types, with enough actual Jung quotes to lend the slim volume academic weight. An easy read if you are already familiar with the basics of Jungian psychology, and accessible for a newbie with a bit of cross referencing for taking in the full scope. I really appreciate that Sharp reminds us that Jung never intend typology to limit, box, or pigeon hole. He points out the uses of coming to understand the myriad ways we humans meet the world. This is a book ab [...]

    9. This is a brief, clearly written introduction to C.G. Jung's 16 personality types. Author Daryl Sharp, a Jungian analyst, explains the two personality attitudes -- introversion and extroversion -- and the four functions or modes of orientation: thinking, sensation, intuition, and feeling. Then he describes them using Jung's own writings. The descriptions are somewhat negative, which I found a bit disconcerting, but Sharp wraps it up nicely at the end. A good explanation of the concepts, but I re [...]

    10. Just some descriptions. I'd like to know how users of each function would justify their functions, why would they value it over others, among other things, while it just expands on some paragraphs of Jung. It doesn't even tell how functions act at auxiliary positions.Probably it just wasn't according to my liking.
