This is both a delightful book and a web site.  Carolyn gives an intelligent and warm explanation of the idea that all mankind divides into four basic personality types, or temperaments, ... based on the earlier work of ... David Keirsey, Isabel Myers and Carl Jung. Highly recommended"

What is a hero?
In Joseph Campbell's The Hero's Journey, he describes the typical adventure of the archetype known as The Hero, as the person who goes out and achieves great deeds on behalf of the group, tribe, or civilization. Inner Heroes is my contemporary presentation of the four temperaments and it is designed to help people look inward and discover their true greatness, their inner hero. As each hero takes their own unique journey they become the hero of their own life. The readers of Follow Your Inner Heroes To The Work You Love relate to heroes because most of them had heroes growing up. Now it is time for them to realize that they, too, have special qualities within themselves to achieve their heart's desire and be a success.
