    Default (No Longer Free) personality e-book from Amazon or B&N

    I don't know the specifics but it looked like something that might interest someone or another here.

    looks temperament based, at least from the first few chaps. Might be more in the later chapters.

    Ah, Florence Littauer. She's fun. I would love to see how she and her husband match up socionically; they're quite the pair. And yeah, it's based on Hippocrates' temperaments.

    One thing to note about her interpretation of the system is that she doesn't believe opposite temperaments (Sanguine and Melancholy, Phlegmatic and Choleric) can naturally occur in the same person. When they do, she attributes it to masking; in other words, someone is trying to compensate for an area of extreme insecurity by projecting a certain set of traits not natural to their make-up. This is in opposition to other teachers of the theory. Her books are generally pretty cool, though.

    I read the word "free" and thought "shit, yeah" but that was false advertisement, not cool, bro.

    Oh well, it was free. The offer must have been pretty short lived. Maybe it only lasted until a certain number of books were bought. I'll edit the title.
