temperament and personality typing

Message from Dr. Robert I. Winer, President

For many years I've had a special interest in personality and temperament. to aid in helping understand themselves and others better. Professionally, I am using the Myers-Briggs Temperament Typing (MBTT) and Keirsey Temperament Sorter to assist Pharmaceutical Representatives in forming and improving their relationships with physicians. I also find this information helpful when acting as a consultant in my areas of medical expertise as they relate to the legal, ethical, and moral issues.
