Herb Pearce, Presidential Profiles

This book explores the personalities of all United States Presidents, with the addition of understanding their Enneagram and Myers-Briggs personality types. It's a challenge to discover the real personality of each president due to the abundance of myth and image-making that surrounds the office in general. This includes exaggerated anecdotes and stories, debunking from opposed political parties, inaccurate or contradictory information, patriotic rewriting of history and skewed perspectives. Pearce has gathered and studied in depth a great deal of presidential information.
