This review is from: Personality Types: Jung's Model of Typology (Studies in Jungian psychology by Jungian analysts) (Paperback)
I came to this book as it was a recommended text on a counselling/psychotherapy course. It helped many of us complete our essays, providing a succinct overview of the subject, useful for both the beginner and more advanced students.

Jung is well known for introducing the terms introvert and extrovert into psychology. It has become the basis of the Myers-Briggs typologoies used by industry to assess personalities, and has even been used by psychologists like Eysenck who are otherwise less sympathetic to his approach.

The typology is, in fact, more detailed than just these two terms, having four functions which individuals use to relate to the world. Each of these can which can be either introverted or extroverted, thus there are eight basic types. These are all explained in detail in this book.

These ideas have been well explained in other popularizations of Jung's own work, but perhaps not in as much detail. This book also provides a wider range of detail as to how the functions interact with each other in individuals determining their attitude to the world, in relationships with other people, and how this theory might be used in a therapeutic situation.

Of course, Jung's own magnum opus on the subject, Psychological Types (Collected Works of C.G. Jung), remains available for those wanting to explore what he said on the subject. This can be difficult reading for those unfamiliar with his style, not least because of the overwhealming quantity of references he throws in. Sharp's book serves either as a substitute for, or an introduction to, that longer work.

All in all an excellent overview of the Jungian type theory. The prime recommendation for the subject. Well written in an informal and engaging style.

The fact that this book is a compact little book is the thing I like about it the most. Jung's ideas on personality are very interesting and quite insightful too
