You might want to read my review on amazon.  There is a lot of description
of what certain personalities will do, and a lot of that is really
insightful.  But it's hard or impossible to tell if it's their theoretical
predictions or is based on actual studies.  Also , they get introversion
wrong, saying it's shyness.  A pretty basic mistake. bill w
