This book is totally amazing and quite well written. I have successfully spread the wealth of knowledge produced by this book to all my friends and loved ones. Some may even go as far as to say that I pretty much shoveled it down their throats. Some of my close friends including myself swear by it, of course because we are the NT Rational Types. Some find this book alright but are not truly convinced by it, the SJ Guardian Types. Some are fascinated by it but refuse to learn from it, the NF Idealist Types and some SP Artisan Types find the whole getting involved with this personality analysis simply boring and could careless about it.
Also an interesting thing that I discovered after my two past failed marriages is that had I known that my marital bliss is confirmed only by my Idealist partner and none of the other three, I would have saved myself from the pain and suffering I experienced being married to the Artisan Types. However, now that I am married to an Idealist, I cannot imagine my life without him and this time HEARTFELT THANKS to this book, I have finally found the Man I deserve with the Marital Bliss & my SOULMATE I always wanted. “Better Late Than Never!” I am an INTJ & my husband INFJ. We are absolutely perfect for each other.

Please Understand Me: Character & Temperament Types, 5th Edition
Please Understand Me: Character and Temperament Types (first published in 1978 as Please Understand Me: An Essay on Temperament Styles) is a psychology book written by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates which focuses on the classification and categorization of personality types. The book contains a self-assessed personality questionnaire, known as the Keirsey Temperament Sorter, which links human behavioral patterns to four temperament types and sixteen character types. Once the reader's personality type has been ascertained, there are detailed profiles which describe the characteristics of that type.
Based upon the notion that people's values differ fundamentally from one another, Keirsey drew upon the views of several psychologists or psychiatrists: Ernst Kretschmer, Erich Adickes, Alfred Adler, Carl Jung, and Isabel Myers who are all mentioned as predecessors in the psychology of temperament or personality. Of these methods, preference is given to the Myers–Briggs test when determining personality type.
