An Innovative and Effective Combination of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Enneagram, and Inner-Child Healing
Author: Pat Wyman
Self-discovery can be an elusive process. Some people never fully express their true personalities because of obstacles from the past. Others float through life with a set of defense mechanisms that seem adequate until something happens to shake that pattern. In her groundbreaking work, Pat Wyman combines three psychological techniques to create a successful method of personal integration. The foundation of the work is a comparative exploration of how the MBTI? instrument, the Enneagram, and Inner-Child Healing can assist in self-discovery. In the end, it is a strikingly honest and poignant study of how a remarkable group of people dealt with tragedy and abuse, and how they achieved healing through intense introspection and the use of these three modalities. Courageous clients share their stories, poems, artwork, and letters, which are interwoven throughout the author's in-depth explanation of how to guide client's through this process.
This anthology is one volume from C.J.S. Hayward's collected works. It includes creative work ranging from very short to moderately long: an open letter to spam patrons, a look at Java and programming, a work that turns Gilbert and Sullivan's "Modern Major-General" on its head, a look at what is good about uncreative web design and what is not so good when administrators leave employees drowning in required readings, a few koans, a look at television and religion, a revised version of a classic FAQ list, and finally a satirical dictionary in the tradition of Ambrose Bierce.
America repeatedly finds itself mired in military interventions long after public buy-in to the national interest has waned. Why is the timely disengagement of military forces so difficult to achieve? Traditional international relations theories diminish the role of the individual leader in favor of the state or international institutions. Behavioral science theories have in recent years experienced a resurgence. However, the dominant behavioral explanation of foreign policy decision-making, prospect theory, while it focuses on how people tend to make decisions under risk, still minimizes the influence of the individual president. Decisions to disengage military forces are presidential decisions, just like the decisions to commit forces to foreign interventions. If we accept this, then it is important to understand if, and if so why, some presidents inherently are more or less acceptant of the risks disengagement presents. This book operationalizes a competing personality-based model of decision-making under risk. Referred to here as the trait-based model, it is assessed using disengagement opportunities in three varied levels of military intervention across four presidencies: humanitarian relief turned nation-building under George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton in Somalia, compellent air campaigns turned peace-making/keeping in Bosnia and Kosovo under Clinton, and major combat operations turned irregular warfare in Iraq under George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Data for the model predominantly comes from existing presidential personality profiles based on the dominant model of personality theory, the five-factor model, augmented by Myers-Briggs Type Inventory data from public sources. This study aims to explain the roughly 30 percent of cases which defy prospect theory’s predictions and to better explain those cases where prospect theory might heretofore have sufficed. The results suggest specific personality traits do in fact point to presidents’ predispositions toward risk, which in turn help explain their disengagement decisions. This work may be only the second to apply the five-factor model to presidential foreign policy decision-making and is the first to do so in the context of disengagement decisions. Hopefully it will foster further work in both areas.

Is there life after death? Are there angels or demons? Martin Herzog was one of those people who adamantly opposed any notion of a spiritual life..until the day he got a very timely surprise visit by an angel named Dominic.

Martin discovers a world that was twice as crowded...a world where angels and demons lived side by side with humans and worked through them to get their work accomplished. Much to his surprise though, he finds a world that his heavily dominated by evil forces.

With a threat against his life and the likelihood of being drawn into a nasty war against brutal and viciously organized crime families, will Martin Herzog decide to stay and fight the demons and their human allies or will he return home and leave his mission unfinished?
