History of the LoveTypes® System

 

In 1921 psychiatrist Carl Jung, a former disciple of Dr. Sigmund Freud, published his classic text on the psychological types. In his book, Jung laid out a theory of personality differences, that, he believed, both determined and limited a person's judgment, perception, and experiences. He named these differences Introversion/Extraversion, Intuition/Sensation, and Thinking/Feeling, and understood them to be inherited and relatively stable over a person's lifetime.

In the 1940s, a mother/daughter team created a personality test based on Jung's theory of psychological types. Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs named the test after themselves: the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®). Today, the MBTI® is the most popular test for normal personality and is widely used in business, education, and the military.

In 1992 I devised the LoveTypes® system based on the work of Dr. Jung and the Myers-Briggs team. The LoveTypes are sixteen distinct personality styles, each of which has unique characteristics and preferences when it comes to intimate relationships. By determining a person's LoveType, you can immediately access secrets about that person's relationship tendencies: whether this individual will be compatible with you, how to win his or her love, and what kind of relationship you can expect to have with him or her.

With the LoveTypes® system as your dating guide, you can quickly determine someone's LoveType--and immediately know if he or she is right for you-- by asking four simple questions or making four basic observations. Then, using the strategies outlined in the system, you can smoothly break the ice, get a date with your desired partner, and begin to build a happy relationship.
