Herb Pearce Presidents

Presidential Profiles: Washington to Trump: Enneagram and Myers-Briggs Perspectives

This book explores the personalities of all United States Presidents, with the addition of understanding their Enneagram and Myers-Briggs personality types.

  • Based on articles and books, quotes from people who knew them, diary entries, historical analyses and watched documentaries about the presidents
  • Information and stories about the Presidents throughout their lives, not just the presidency
  • Evaluation of their Enneagram and Myers-Briggs personality type strengths and weaknesses, complexities and contradictions
