The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The original versions of the MBTI were constructed by two Americans, Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers.

Love Me
I would highly recommend that readers interested in MBTI and culture not buy this book as the author seems to have put a lot more time into making personal value judgments than into researching culture and personality. One of the main messages of the book can be summarized as Feeling equals "good" and Thinking equals "evil". So not very helpful for anyone who is a Thinker! Ironically the author also spends a lot of time trying to tell us how to respect each other's cultures and differing values while then devoting entire chapters to describing his own personal dislike of entire countries whose vibrant cultures and diverse populations likely produce all kinds of traits both "good" and "bad". In short avoid it.

"Where in the World do I Belong" is an interesting take on Personality Type applied to culture - while every other book on Personality Type takes the straight academic path of crunching numbers, counting surveys, and researching the research of researchers, Mr. Massey takes a very different tack. Rather than compile past research and give an analytical evaluation of each culture, he takes what can only be termed a more "humanistic approach" - he talks to people from each culture, as well as draws from his own experience. The first 1/4 of the books is a fascinating examination and explanation of personality type - however, what sets it apart is the author's style. He admits up front that he is an INFP, and his writing style shows this - screams it, in fact. The author's use of his own personal experiences, anecdotes, and quotes from friends, colleagues, and professors reads somewhat like an autobiography, and offers up an image of "how an INFP sees the world", and makes what tends to be an analytical and academic topic accessible. The rest of the book deals with the "types" of various cultures, based on how people from each culture see it - whether this method is less valid than an analytical and historical survey is up for debate, but what can't be debated is that this book, written by an NF, gives a completely different view of, and feel to, personality type.

Kind of skimps out on content, it even lacks consistency. I love the idea though. Good piece to add to a collection on typology, though.

This book is absolutely rubbish... Tells you nothing and it helps you with nothing... Go on line... and do a Google search you would be better off than wasting your money on this book...

I've got a whole bookshelf of MBTI books, and thought this one might be an interesting addition. It is, indeed, an interesting addition -- fun, a little bit out-there, brimming with personal anecdotes -- but it's not a book I'll likely refer to often.

Massey is necessarily speculative and conclusory in typecasting countries. After all, the concept itself is a little hard to swallow; it requires us to distill the personality of an entire nation into a single type. This is stereotyping on a global scale.

The United States is, of course, ESTJ. Loud, strong-willed, outgoing, with pronounced E and T preferences. England is also ESTJ, though S and J are more pronounced than E and T. Austria, Slovenia, Hungary & Croatia share the ESTJ preference.

Massey posits that China overall is ISFP, though Beijing is ESTP. Interesting, as I know many Chinese folks living in the US and there's not a P in the crowd,

Massey's Italy is ENFP -- very E, very P. I'll agree with that assessment. Ireland, Spain, Denmark, Bulgaria, Belize, Sudan, Saudia Arabia . . . also ENFP. Russia, India, and a number of -stans are also listed as ENFP.

ENFJ countries include Greenland and Ghana. There must be something inherently ENFJ about the French speakers, as French-speaking Quebec, Canadians and French-speaking Belgians are ENFJ; whereas English-speaking Canadians are ESFJ and Dutch-speaking Belgians are apparently ISFP.

In addition to Canada, other ESFJ countries include Costa Rica, Ukraine, Namimbia, Uganda, Taiwan, and South Korea. Seemingly strange bedfellows -- you'll have to read the book to see what these countries have in common.

INFP countries inclue Nepal and Burma. ENTJ countries -- the only two are France and Jordan, which don't strike me as having much else in common.

Central and South America & the Caribbean are well-represented on the list of ESFP countries. Mexico, Guatemala, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Portugal and Romania are typed as ESFP. As are Greece, Malta, Turkey, Tibet, Thailand and East Timor. And who would have thought that Australia and Bangladesh share the same personality type? Yep, both are ESFP.

Fortunately, Massey's style is light and personal, brimming with anecdotes. He doesn't present this as airtight academic research, nor is there any I'm-defending-my-dissertation arrogance in his writing. In fact, he freely expresses uncertainty about his conclusions and notes that he has limited and necessarily biased data -- one respondent from Ghana, and three from Australia, for example.

This is simply a fun read, nothing more & nothing less. If you're expecting a reference book or an MBTI text . . . or clear insight into where you should live in retirement, you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for something light & fun, something interesting that will have you reflecting on your international travels, something that shows one person's interpretation and application of the MBTI, and you're not offended by blanket conclusions and stereotypes, you might enjoy this.
