By understanding the 16 personality types based on the Myers-Biggs Type Indicator, assert the authors, readers will have better knowledge of the roles they continually play in relationships, and what qualities are needed from a partner.

As business consultants, and in seminars, workshops, and previous books--Type Talk (1988) and Type Talk at Work (1992)--Kroeger and Thuesen, who are "life partners and business partners," have built a small industry around the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which has its roots in Jungian psychology. Here, they explain the theory's 16 "types," defined by individual preferences within each of four dichotomies--"extraverted"/introverted, sensing/intuitive, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving--and then view the impact of these personality-type similarities and differences on "four keys to a lasting love": communication, sex and intimacy, finance, and conflict. A third section explains how "type talk" can help couples negotiate, establish contracts, and learn to cope with and even to celebrate their similarities and differences, while an appendix supplies brief profiles of the 16 MBTI personality types. The market for advice about relationships seems never to be saturated, and the 16 Ways approach, while it may seem a bit mechanical, is more nuanced and complex than many of its pop-psychology competitors. Mary CarrollFrom Library Journal:
Kroeger and Thuesen, specialists in the business applications of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), wrote the best-selling Type Talk at Work ( LJ 1/92). Now, they apply the MBTI principles to relationships.
