Written in the late 70s, the I have been using the 16 types as an analytical social tool for over a decade, as taught by my Jungian-influenced father.

Written in the late 70s, the text also suffers from some rather outrageous to the modern, sexually liberated female reader, at least sexism. Overall I found the section on mating habits and motivations to be wildly inaccurate, and far too forgetful of Jungian origins.

The dated approach towards sexuality in general came through so strongly in this section that I felt I gained almost nothing from reading it - not even a majority of it resonated with my own thoughts or logical analysis.

If anything, these classical trappings cluttered what should have been a more systematic and clear-cut explanation of the types. Even had that occurred, I am not sure that looking at those four specific uber-types as being the most important distinctions is accurate. The book was instructive in some ways, despite these flaws; in particular, I found the sections on temperaments in childhood and development very useful and accurate relative to my own observations and conclusions.

I have observed that people who focus strongly on self-improvement - especially common in the N types, if we talk about IDENTITY rather than more tangible things like skills - can be difficult to type. But there is a difference between your innate temperment, something I think is quite firm very early on, and the desire for another temperament. This can botch the questionnaires, too, if a subject answers questions in a way which reflects how he WISHES he were, instead of how he actually is.

My point in bringing up these who grow away from their fundamental temperament: you can examine them as children via memory or talking to parents and such and retroactively better gauge their type. This information along with current questionnaire results should determine a solid base temperament. Again, the use of the 4 uber-types muddles these ideas to an extent, but not too much. I still found these parts useful.

Most useful of all, however, were the initial breakdown of modalities in the first section, and the more in-depth Portraits of each of the 16th types in the last section. These are the most clear-cut and logically laid-out, and a strong majority of what I read resonated with truth. My next goal is to pursue the earlier, Jungian analysis in formal textual detail, because I suspect I will find that much more useful and illuminating.
