Not sure what to get your loved ones this holiday season? Give them the tools to get creative. Bestselling author Otto Kroeger and certified MBTI instructor David Goldstein have put a creative spin on personality type in their new book, Creative You: Using Your Personality Type to Thrive, revolutionizing how personality types influence how, what, and why we create.
In their book, Kroeger and Goldstein incorporate the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment into a larger discussion about creative differences and the connection between personality and creativity. Highlighting the creative advantages found within each of the 16 personality types, Creative You helps readers utilize their creative strengths, identify their optimum learning style and environment, and remedy everyday problems with creative solutions.
“David Goldstein and Otto Kroeger have performed a valuable service by helping people of all 16 personality types to understand and enhance their creative gifts, “ says Shelley Carson, PhD and lecturer in psychology at Harvard University. “Creativity isn’t just for one type of personality. Each of us has creative potential, and each personality type has a creative contribution to make. Creative You will help you find your own unique pathway to a more creative life, even if you previously thought of yourself as uncreative.”
Kroeger is considered one of the most influential communicators and interpreters of the MBTI assessment. As an internationally recognized artist, Goldstein identified the need to examine the relationship between creativity and personality type to engage in a more authentic life.
