A Complete Practical Guide
About the Book
Based on the psychological theories of C.G. Jung, the Watchword Personality Test will enable you to identify your psychological type and explore the structure and dynamics of your personality. As you learn to recognize the various forces and tendencies in your psyche, you will acquire greater understanding of your inner self and your personal relationships.
Originally published in 1992, this practical technique of self-discovery uses a structured form of word association which you assess and interpret yourself, following clear guidelines that require no numerical scoring.
Easy to understand and fun to use, this newly revised and expanded guide to the Watchword Personality Test will appeal to a wide range of readers, including professional psychologists and students of psychology, counselors and psychotherapists, as well as anyone interested in self-exploration and personal growth.
