My thoughts

It was interested to read and look at the personality types of my boys in relation to me and how I could help to develop their creativity.

Based on the descriptions here are the classifications which I derived.

Myself- ISTJ

Monkey Boy- ENFJ

Doggie Boy- INFP

Having both introvert and extrovert kid makes it difficult to create a home environment that is conclusive for both boys to develop their creative sides. However the explanations and tips given within the book do help me understand them better and give me an idea on how to guide each one of them.
