    I skimmed through parts of the book, but I found it fascinating. I've recently started questioning the validity of cognitive functions -- and the book purposefully avoids discussing cognitive functions. In a way, the book provided me with a sense that there is still depth and value to the MBTI, regardless of the inclusion of Ni, Te, Fi, and the like.

    I especially appreciated the analyses of INTJs in literature. There was the analysis of Jane Eyre, where the conflict between Jane and Mr. St. John was described as an INFJ/INTJ conflict. And there was the analysis of Nathaniel Bowditch, which analyzed his INTJ-like and non-INTJ qualities, and ultimately concluded that he was "healthy, well-rounded". One thought I found valuable is as below:

    "One of the things that people will often try to do when they learn about type is to
    conform themselves to their type description in a sort of self-Pygmalion project, quashing the parts
    of themselves that do not exactly fit into their type description. In effect, they endeavor to become
    a stereotypical version of whatever type they believe they are. (I fear that such behaviors can give
    amusement to their acquaintances.) But as Bowditch demonstrates, there can be a great deal of
    diversity encompassed within the four letters of a type."

    INTJ - The Scientists

    I've read her book about INTPs and it was quite entertaining. Lots of data in there, as well.
