About the Authors
This is a fascinating and probing explanation of psychological type theory. Christopher F. J. Ross Francis and Leslie J. Francis Ross have gone back to the Jungian origins of what is commonly referred to as the Myers-Briggs personality test, restoring depth and nuance—and, as well, reintegrating a spiritual perspective—to explore how psychological types can be understood and used fruitfully to support leaders in their work. This volume will be a valuable resource for a wide range of religious leaders, counselors, and organizational consultants.

When a community that has come together in the spirit of love is composed of people who are genuinely curious about each other’s differences, it is a psychological miracle—one that Leslie J. Francis and Christopher F. J. Ross have been able to foster. That some of my ideas have contributed to their insights and guidelines gives me heart to recommend this book to members of other faiths as well: it belongs on the shelf of anyone who believes in what human consciousness can achieve when it accepts that its way to understanding is not the only one.
