Feel firmly in control of your spouse?
A Doll House might warn of the danger
... read what a dozen authors have to say about the Guardian's uniquely parental way in love and marriage with the other temperaments. More importantly, learn about what Professor Keirsey calls the Pygmalion Project -- how we all try to "re-form" our loved ones into our own image, and how this often well-intentioned manipulation troubles our relationships.
"A good many novelists and playwrights recognize the simple truth that the loyal, reliable Guardians are the rock-solid foundation of all our civilized institutions, including marriage." -- Dr. Stephen Montgomery
Volume Two features portraits of four Guardian (SJ) types:
The Protector --
"If he put implicit faith in her, nothing should hurt him; however deep he buried himself or climbed high, not for a second should he find himself without her." -- Virginia Woolf
The Provider --
"I believe the highest type of Service... is motivated by active adherence and loyalty to that which is the essential principle of Boosterism -- Good Citzenship is all its factors and aspects." -- Sinclair Lewis
The Inspector --
"She fought to make him undertake his own responsibilities, to make hime fulfill his obligations.. to make him moral, religious." -- D.H. Lawrence
The Supervisor --
"No. No.-- just lean on me; I'll guide you and teach you ... Don't be afraid of anything, Nora; just open your heart to me, and I'll be conscience and will to you both." -- Henrik Ibsen
