Looks like a very interesting book...

 

(From the article): Modes are a more useful way to think about helping people perform at their best than are personality types – or any “typing” system. The “type” model of behavior assumes that people stay the same, and so we should fit them in the right organizational cubbyhole.

 

In contrast, the mode model lets us understand what triggers our modes of being, the underlying beliefs and habits that hold that mode in place – and then goes on to help us change negative modes for the better.
