Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Long-time marriage and family therapist Renee Baron uses the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to educate her clients on how personality type, or preference, affects relationships. In Opposites Attract, she uses a strong sense of humor to help readers figure out the often confusing world of relationships. Baron says, “In our relationships, especially our intimate ones, we often are attracted to people who are different from us.” To help us understand those differences, we can use the MBTI to determine our own as well as our partner’s type and the traits and characteristics that go along with those types. Opposites Attract uses quizzes, comics and checklists to explain the four MBTI types, plus offers advice on how to communicate with each type and what to look for in yourself to make communication more effective. A fun read with humor that might just make you laugh at yourself and help improve your relationships. — Kristy Musalo, New Connexion Journal
