This book is partly intended as a brief inexpensive text for courses and corporations involving people working in teams. It also presents a new theory of personality extending, although still based on, the theory of C. G. Jung propounded nearly a century ago. But before doing this formally, it brings to the recently developed practice of teamology two new approaches that greatly simplify team formation procedures, and raise the quality of the smaller teams, the duets and trios. In its early days teamology used the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, soon replaced by a shorter questionnaire covering the same psychological territory. This led to quantitative transformation of the questionnaire scores onto Jung's underlying theory. This rigorous analysis found that the Type Table assumptions previously employed to transform the scores onto the Jung theory were unreliable and to many people inapplicable. A later seminar developed the easier way to construct teams described. It also clarified team organization by dividing Jung's cognitive modes into roles, with no additional computation needed. Further it learned to combine roles into "activities" to help form good small teams - duets and trios - a methodology not available earlier. The activity concept improves organization for larger teams as well. An "activity spreadsheet" available on the Internet is also provided. For the benefit of counselors and individuals interested in self-awareness, the post-Jungian role theory is formalized in Ch. 4, in which the shortcomings of earlier typologies, the Jungian Type Survey and the Type Table, are brought to light. The advantages of putting the type categories in order by score, as suggested by Reynierse, is applied, leading to an updated post-Jungian type indicator intended to replace the unordered category labels presently used. Short and inexpensive, this book is a simple text aimed mainly at university-level team courses focused primarily, but not exclusively, on the design of devices, systems, and human activities. In addition, it makes available to counselors and individuals a new post-Jungian development correcting and extending the personality theories currently in use.
