Professor Keirsey is a long time clinical psychologist of the gestalt-field systems school. After 30 years of treating hundreds of teaching, parenting, marriage, and management problems, Dr. Keirsey now challenges the reader to "Abondon the Pygmalion Project", that endless and fruitless attempt to change the Other into a carbon copy of Oneself.

"You may have an identity crisis or two, but I won't, haven't, and can't. And it's not because I'm fixated, arrested, or hung up at some immature stage, passage, or season of my life. I hear different drummers."

- Publisher A 40 year clinical study of differences in temperament and character in mating, parneting, teaching and leading. Defines four types: Dionysians (SP), Epimethians (SJ), Prometheans (NT) and Apollonians (NF). Keirsey Temperament Sorter included.
