In this practical, if lopsided, guide to harnessing and implementing one's creativity, Myers-Briggs Personality Type experts Goldstein and Kroeger give readers insights into how to use their Myers-Briggs personality traits to bring creativity to their work, passions, and hobbies. Starting with an expansive definition of creativity that makes room for everyone from da Vinci to the bus driver threading through traffic, the authors spend the first two thirds of the book breaking down the four Myers-Briggs dyads (Extraversion or Introversion, Sensing or Intuition, Thinking or Feeling, and Judging or Perceiving), explaining how they combine to form a discreet creative "type," and helping readers determine their own individual types. (Helpfully, the duo includes detailed profiles for each of the 16 possibilities.) The final third of the book is more practical, though scattered, with chapters featuring thought exercises and more abstract advice on how to productively interact with other Myers-Briggs types, especially when that interaction involves collaboration or criticism. The effectiveness of the book depends a great deal on a reader's investment in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) test, though anyone stuck in a mental rut will appreciate Goldstein and Kroeger's eclectic and provocative guidance.
