    Best Descriptive Literature on MBTI?

    I want to learn more about the MBTI theory. Are there any good books to read about the 16 types? Also wondering how regarded the MBTI is in the field of psychology, is it just a fun dated theory like the Ennegram or is it more?

    I personally have liked Jung's original descriptions best. CG Jung Collected Works #6 (Typology). It is a long read and only covers the eight cognitive functions, but it covers a great deal about the subject and actually includes some of the negative impacts if the particular function is left unchecked and unbalanced by other functions (unlike Myers-Briggs which is strictly positive descriptions). After reading it, I definitely understand MBTI a lot more and can see how some of the functions can influence each other.
