Gifts Differing by Isabel Briggs Myers

Gifts Differing: Understanding Personality Type, by Isabel Briggs Myers

The original book behind the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) instrument

If you only read one book on the MBTI 16 personality types, Rachel Green, our Director and author of "INFJ: What it's like to be one", recommend people read this one.

You are getting the information from the source.

For more than 60 years, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) instrument has been the most widely used tool in the world for determining personality type, and for more than 25 years, Gifts Differing has been the preeminent source for understanding it.

Gifts Differing is the original text by Isabel Briggs Myers and the information in it is far more accurate than many other sources of information found on the web. Rachel still reads it!
