Was That Really Me?by Naomi L Quenk
Synopses & Reviews
Psychologist Naomi Quenk discusses the stress patterns that various personality types experience. Using Jungian psychological type theory and the MBTI© personality inventory, Quenk helps readers turn their moments of stress into gems of personal understanding and growth. Work-related stress and the effects of stress over time are both explored in Was That Really Me?, as is a simple explanation of type dynamics, type differentiation, and type development. Including discussions of how each of the sixteen personality types functions at work and what each finds stressful or energizing, plus new stories about people in the grip of their inferior functions, Was That Really Me? helps readers learn from moments of stress.
Book News Annotation:
This volume is a revised edition of Quenk's 1993 Beside Ourselves (also by Davies-Black). Quenk, a psychologist, employs Jungian theory and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality inventory to discuss behaviors under stress for different personality types. Following a description of Jungian typology and the effects and dynamics of hidden personality, the behavior during interactions with others of the 16 personality types are described (the types are defined in an appendix). The text is designed for trainers and others who employ the Meyers-Briggs test.
