Learning: more about Myers-Briggs personality types

There is little to add to what Caring Together says about Myers-Briggs Personality types that isn’t easily accessible on the net.

Personality Pathways also has an excellent summary.

It is primarily ‘a framework for understanding individual differences, and … a dynamic model of individual development’.

There are of course other techniques for testing and discovering personality types.
