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. For more information, read LoveTypes: Discover
