The Type Theory of Law by This volume presents a Type Theory of Law (TTL), claiming that this is a unique theory of law that stems from the philosophical understanding of Jung s psychological types applied to the phenomenon of law. Furthermore, the TTL claims to be a universal, general and descriptive account of law. To prove that, the book first presents the fundamentals of Jungian psychological types, as they had been invented by Jung and consequently developed further by his followers. The next part of the book describes how the typological structure of an individual determines their understanding of law. It then addresses the way in which inclusive legal theory can be understood based on this typology. Finally, the book describes the TTL in general and descriptive terms and puts it into context. All in all, the book shows how the integral or inclusive approach to understanding the nature of law is not only in tune with our time, but also relevant for presenting a more persuasive picture of law than the older exclusivist or dualist approaches of strict natural law and rigid legal positivism did."

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a tool, a test that can be taken, that helps provide insight on how we perceive, relate to the world and communicate with others. Preferences in basic function of personality form early in life. Myers-Briggs can help us identify our own preferences, how we prefer to communicate to others and how others may have differently styles of communication. By knowing our own style of communication, by being more aware of how we communicate ourselves, our ability to communicate successfully with others may improve.
| The four basic personality dichotomies of the Myers-Briggs Personality scale are: Intravert/Extrovert, Intuition/Sensing, Thinking/Feeling, Judging/Perceiving. Most all of us bias to one side or the other of each of these dichotomies.
