An Extrovert character has increased energy when interacting with the outside world, while Introverts use the quietness and solitude they crave to boost their energy as well as their feelings of well-being. Sensors concentrate on what exists through solid facts, while Intuitive people are more likely to go with hunches and imagination over just the hard facts.

Thinkers are more rational as they use logic and an analytical process to make decisions, while Feelers will look at the effect the outcome will have on themselves as well as others around them. Judgers like the more structured environment and will want problems resolved as quickly as possible, while Perceivers are spontaneous as well as taking the time to collect information before making any decisions.

There are four different major areas of characteristics according to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the ten scenarios from each section will help you identify which are yours. Using the scoring sheet, you will see what you do as a result of different issues, how you can tweak your bad habits, and how to help you better understand your partner. The result will be that with a better understanding of who you are and why you react the way you do to your significant other, will allow you two to have a more harmonious and happy relationship.

Opposites Attract was spot-on when it described me as well as how I reacted to certain scenarios. I am beginning to think that Ms. Baron must have hidden cameras in my head because I swear she could see right through the windows of my mind, and she got right down to the heart of my problems and how they affect my relationship with my husband. According to the situations that I am prone to, I am an Extrovert-Intuitive-Thinking-Judger which just happens to be one hundred percent true. This book has me super excited because I have found that it made me look deep inside myself and see what I could do to make my life and the life of my husband so much easier. I would like to thank the author for bringing this book to the attention of readers as I feel it will really help them identify where they can strengthen their relationship.

Caution: This book will hit you hard with the truth of who you are and if you are prone to wearing rose-colored glasses, they will be knocked right off your pert nose. You have been warned!
