Type & InnovationIntroduction to Type & Innovation, by Damian Killen and Gareth Williams is a book that originated from the authors’ mutual interest in discovering the link between personality type and innovation. They both came into this project from different worlds – Gareth from having been involved in innovation and in the teaching of it and the other, Damian from his work in the field of type and in particular his experience with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) instrument. The MBTI® instrument identifies sixteen distinct personality types, each type with its own set of strengths. They both knew instinctively there was a link and decided their goal was to discover this link and highlight how the different types are critical to the innovation process.

In 2005, they surveyed approximately 500 people from around the globe (although primarily in Europe and North America). The content gained from data analysis and on-going feedback from workshop participants has since shaped the contents of this book. The profiles of the sixteen types and how people of each type innovate as well as their strengths and challenges are detailed in Introduction to Type & Innovation as well as an action plan for increasing one’s own innovation potential.
