'Von Franz describes the inferior functioning of the eight psychological types, showing the potential and pitfalls of each. Rich with case studies and clinical examples revealing typology to be both a diagnostic tool and a way to self -knowledge. Chapters by Hillman differentiate feeling from other psychological acts and expose misconceptions about feeling and confusions between the anima and the mother complex. Includes a historical introduction to the question, Jungian descriptions and distinctions, and an important chapter on the education of the feeing function with discussions of courage, tact, manners, and the creation of atmosphere.'
