temperament and personality typing
For many years I've had a special interest in type, typology, personality types, and temperament. I initially came to know of type or typing through the Myers-Briggs (Myers Briggs) paradigm. I didn't read Jung on type till around three years later. Since then, I've grown to understand the differences between Jung and the more recent popularizers of his ideas, such as Myers Briggs, Keirey, etc. As a result I developed my own typing test based on the previous work of the Jungian analysts Horace Gray and Joseph Wheelwright, both physicians at Stanford University in the 1930-1940's.
Professionally, I sometimes use temperament testing, word association, and psychological testing batteries for intellect / cognitive functioning, personality, affect, and psychopathology in my neuropsychiatric practice.
I've left the original dates of composition on most of the material here, though some of my original articles are no longer available.
