Just My TYPE, The Musical

Inaugural production of a new musical exploring how the four pairs of personality traits, based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Test®, affect one’s loves and life

At the Barn Theatre

Ross Alternative Works (RAW) presents a new play, Just My TYPE – The Musical, about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® Assessment, explores how the four pairs of personality traits affect one’s loves and life.

Four couples are chosen to illustrate what happens when opposites mate. The script is based on Type Talk (1988) and 16 Ways to Love Your Lover (1994) by Otto Krueger and Janet Thuesen.

As the show opens, psychologists Kate and Ben, a married couple, face a deadline in their project to write a popular level book on personality types. Kate and Ben learn something about themselves in the process. So will the audience.

Two of the four couples represented include an introvert who marries an extrovert and a thinker who weds a feeler. The couples’ attractions, conflicts, and resolutions (or not) are played out as scenes move between five settings from Puget Sound to Santa Monica to Big Stone Gap, to San Francisco, to Virginia.
