    I wouldn't read it. I wouldn't be your target demographic though: I've never really read an mbti book. I thought the basic descriptions were enough. Beyond that, I don't really care. I... sort of think there are more interesting things to spend time on.

    Here's your marketing plan: print out like four hundred copies and then shuffle them all together into a big pile. Take a handful of the pages and stuff them into plastic grocery bags. Drive around to bus stations and fling one of the bags into people's faces and say "here's your fucking book" and then drive off.

Punctuation-free is a non-starter for the same reason that anything written in the style of War and Peace is a non-starter now. People are lazy. That means they want you to make it easy for them, not for you. You can't afford bad reviews until you are established. When you are new, a few bad reviews will end you.
    And to stretch this metaphor further: if you see someone who reminds you of Pig Pen from Peanuts whose homemade lunch every day looks like warmed over shit left to get cold again is opening up a restaurant serving slightly off liver and butter bean gruel, are you gonna try it?

    Spoiler: Answer Key
    I've seen nothing that shows the ability to write well, and the subject matter isn't something I'm interested in.


    But don't let that stop you. I'm not your target audience.
