Can't we all just get along (and together)? Jan 5, 2004
The book describes another knock-off copy-cat system of the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator and the MBTI's marvellous refinement, Keirseian Temperament. Wouldn't it be great if all these copycat system people, and the MBTI and Keirsian people, could get together and admit they are merely describing the same thing? Heck, the world might actually see the truth to these systems, once they're unified. But no, I guess there's money to be made by coining a new name for something and establishing a copyright for that new name. Still, basically, it more or less all boils down to 4 basic temperaments, further extrapolating into 16 total types, no matter which system. This book is brief and hence does not get into much of any depth, but it is useful for an introduction to the idea. One thing humorous: The author is obviously a Sensing Perceiver on the MBTI (I forget what she calls it in her system) and admits that her type does not like being predictable or nailed down to anything; then, she spends the rest of the book hedging her bets and declaring that her type fluctuates and is really hard to nail down. (Something which MBTI most emphatically denies; still, it is typical of SPs to hate being predictable).

No more cookie cutter learning styles! Nov 30, 1999
The Way We Work by Cynthia Ulrich Tobias
The Way We Work is a wonderful followup to Ms. Tobias's previous book, The Way They Learn. As an entrepreneur and educator, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing these learning styles translated into workplace applications. Not only does the book encourage evaluation of our own learning styles, but teaches us how to get along with those having different learning and communication styles from our own.
The author wisely discourages the use of labeling and cookie-cutter analysis, which is a refreshing approach. This is one I will quickly place on my recommended reading list for my students and colleagues alike. Well done!
