Welcome to our new blog. Authors David M. Keirsey, Edward Kim, and Kip Parent from Keirsey.com have been writing on Keirsey Temperament Theory in various blogs and forums for a number of years, and will now be focusing their efforts in one place – here at blog.keirsey.com.
While each of the authors reserves the privilege of addressing any topic of the moment, each brings a particular area of focus to this blog:
Dr. David M. (Dave) Keirsey, who has spent his entire life observing people and categorizing their temperaments, will write about famous and infamous personalities and how their temperament shapes their actions. Dave’s first entry, on Charlie Sheen, christens the blog with observations on this (in)famous Artisan.
Edward Kim, Managing Director of Synergy Leaders, the Professional Services Division of Keirsey.com, will focus on the application of Keirsey Temperament Theory in the workplace with an emphasis on leadership development. His initial entries in the blog will address a backlog of questions on temperament and leadership that users of the keirsey.com website have submitted. Called by Dr. David W. Keirsey, “The premier expert in Keirsey Temperament Theory and Leadership Development”, Edward welcomes the opportunity to answer questions submitted through this blog, so don’t hesitate to send them in.
Kip Parent, CEO of Keirsey Research, focuses on using Keirsey Temperament Theory to understand current events – from politics to dating habits to consumer behaviors. His first entries will address such varied topics as “Which temperaments are the happiest?” and “Are Idealists more likely to break up a relationship via a text message?” – topics thoroughly researched via Keirsey Research surveys.
