Bingo. Join the crowd. We all are naturally reductionists, especially Rationals. Isabel, being a Healer Idealist naturally did look at the whole, luckily having Jung's rather vague analysis to point her in the right direction. She actually observed individuals (the key descriptions were actually based on High School students) and for the first time "voiced" them (wrote the sixteen descriptions down). It took my father, a systematic thinker, who had been imbued with Gestalt psychology (where the whole/part distinction matters) and who had be observing and dealing with kids as living (he was head school psychologist for many years), to reconfigure the initial and "correct" recognition of Isabel's all different types.
