Knowing there is a problem is half the battle... Jun 7, 2008
As a military leader, it is essential to motivate your organization. "Please Understand Me: Character & Temperament Types", by Keirsey and Bates, is an excellent primer in basic personality types.
With an understanding of the basic temperament types, leaders will be able to identify key attributes of each of the temperament types in their workers. Some people will fit the cookie-cutter descriptions quite nicely, others may vary their temperament types depending on the situation. The ability to recognize the key attributes to each of the temperaments will enable you to apply the right motivation technique at the time.
What's the right motivation technique to apply? This book doesn't answer that question, which is my main complaint with it.
This book is a fascinating look at the basic personality types. It was a great read, but I was looking for more.
Resource tool to aid in understaning varous people and their ways May 20, 2008
Good read - confusing at points if unfamiliar with the various terminologies. I enjoyed using it to analyze relationships that I have.
My favourite book May 1, 2008
Well, it gave me a more powerful tool in oder to understand me as well as other people. Well explained, rich information and interesting stories about each type of 16s. However the author should work out more and deeper

Please Understand Me: Character and Temperament Types This is an excellent way to look at the temperament types without delving too deeply into areas that are not productive for your purposes.
Excellent support materials for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Feb 9, 2008
Keirsey and Bates have supplied excellent supplementary materials for administrators of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, with even more clear-cut insight and research into the four temperament types. The only flaw is in the Keirsey Temperament Sorter which has no reliability or validity studies behind it and may misrepresent those whose preferences are borderline.
