    Default Do not buy this book

    http://www.amazon.com/Socionics-Demy.../dp/184753595X

    Spencer Stern is the owner of simplysocionics.com

    He is not a socionist. I'm not sure how he got published.

    we know that... but you could at least give some reasons beyond "Spencer Stern" wrote it. Did you buy it? Have you actually read it?

    anyone can get their work published in todays world... especially in the self-help psuedoscience category.

    You can chat with Spencer:

    I asked him to direct me to short descriptions on the 8 functions and he gave me the web address for an MBTI site.

    i've read the book.

    it's written by an LII and therefor not really my style.

    it's pretty straightforward written. He covers all the types in a functional way (which is not good imo) and he also covers the relationships.

    Although the book has 200+ pages he mainly uses very short descriptions / punch lines.

    If you know something about socionics you wouldn't learn much new from it. It even has some punch lines taken straight of the internet.

    It's a nice book for beginners or people who are interested in socionics, but there's not much more to read then there is to be found on the internet.

    If you still have questions about this book, feel free to ask me.
