The authors have followed up their Type Talk (Delacorte, 1988), an introduction to the study of personality types, with this handy explanation of how we can better understand personalities in the workplace. Based on C.G. Jung's classic 1923 Psychological Types and the famous Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), this useful work makes common sense out of a complex idea, and the pragmatic workplace meaning of ``typewatching'' should strongly appeal to managers and human resource professionals. The 16 types are explained and are then related to real workplace issues such as problem solving, managing time, setting goals, managing stress, and other understandable applications in business. Millions of people have completed Myers-Briggs, and now we have a very accessible application in business of this fascinating field of study. Recommended for all libraries.
