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!

Can you trust this book?

Yes, because it is written by real INFJs for INFJs and about INFJs. It is not another personality type looking in on us and trying to analyse and translate us, it is deep understanding from INFJs looking from the inside out, as it really is. If you are an INFJ it is especially for you. 

It will give you an in-depth journey inside the world of one healthy INFJ, Rachel Green; and she is joined by other INFJs who all write the truth about their lives as INFJs. How good is that? Really good.

Plus, an INTJ and an INFP help us better understand the similarities and differences between them and INFJs, so there can be no more confusion!

Why an e-book?

We have deliberately made it into an e-book because there are a series of hyperlinks to a mass of other resources, quotes and information on INFJs so you can click straight through. 

It also means people can get the book far faster than other methods and there are no additional fees for postage. Unsure whether to buy? Take a look at the introduction and index on the bar below and find out how valuable the content is before you buy.

Your INFJ writers

Rachel Green, is an INFJ and is the main writer. However she is supported by 12 other INFJs who have written on aspects of their INFJ lives too and there are quotes from others. There is a total of sixteen different INFJs involved plus an INFJ plus an INTJ.

The INFJs represent a diverse range of genders, ages, occupations and cultural backgrounds from seven different countries.  

Rachel says,

"I have been an INFJ my whole life, but didn't realise it until I was in my thirties. My mother, an ISTJ, thought I was an "oddball" and so without knowing it, discouraged much of my INFJ character ... but failed! I am so relieved to know I am an INFJ as it makes sense to me. I now live my life ensuring I understand and uses my INFJ strengths and honour my type, despite being different to most of the people I meet and work with".

She writes frequently on Quora, LinkedIn, Google+ and Twitter about INFJs and has been awarded Top Writer Status on Quora for her contributions.

She became an accredited user of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), approximately 25 years ago, and has coached many different types. She has been lucky enough to meet many other INFJs too.

Gain from her experiences now and find out how to be a happy, healthy INFJ with a high level of self-understanding and acceptance. After-all that is all we need as INFJs, isn't it? To understand ourselves and to be understood.

Was that really me? by Naomi L. Quenk

Was that really me? How everyday stress brings out our hidden personality.

Brilliant insights!

Quenk describes what stresses each of the 16 personality types on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), how each type behaves when stressed and why, and how each type can return to balance.

She shows quite clearly that each type is stressed by different triggers and causes, and that there are type specific ways to recover from and reduce stress.

The idea that one way of stress reduction fits all is clearly shown to be wrong. It is fascinating. There is a chapter on each type specific to them as well as a general background on what happens under stress. This is unique and invaluable work by Quenk.

It helps every type understand the impact, both negative and positive, of their inferior function, the shadow side of their personality.

A must read.

The original book was called: Beside Ourselves, Our Hidden Personality in Everyday Life.

This is the second edition.

Rachel says, If people only ever read one book on their type, this should be it. It has changed my life and I ask all my MBTI clients to read it.
