This may come as a shock, but you and your significant other don’t always communicate clearly with one another.
So, as our Valentine’s gift to you, we spend 18 minutes talking with one of the most brilliant, delightful consulting psychologists in America.
For over thirty years, Dr. Richard Grant has helped couples communicate more thoughtfully and connect more deeply. In addition, he’s trained corporate and government officials in effective communication. He is an expert on Myers-Briggs personality analysis and is a very entertaining speaker.
Dr. Grant has spent decades studying the patterns of psychology that show up over and over again in human relationships. He is a comforting expert when it comes to personality types and their preferences.
In our eighteen minutes together, he’ll enlighten you with the major dualities and differences in various personality characteristics and gives you a wonderful exercise for uncovering the DNA that built your Valentine’s love language.

Episode 26 Show Notes:
Take the Keirsey Temperament Sorter online test to get a rough-but-free idea of your basic psychological type.
For $59.95, you can take Form M of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator online. It’s an instrument that’s helped tens of millions of people better understand themselves and everyone else.
The book Dr. Grant references is called Just Your Type by Paul Tieger and Barbara Barron-Tieger, which is a really big field study of couples and type preferences. The Tiegers interviewed all sixteen types married to all sixteen types (256 cells in the matrix) and wrote up recommendations from them for improving one’s relationship.

ABOUT THE FUNNY BUSINESS PODCAST
Tim Miles and Ryan Patrick use their combined 45+ years experience working with family businesses to share stories, offer advice, and cut through the buzzword-saturated clutter of marketing and management advice.
Part Dave Barry and Part Dave Ramsey, these two guys look at the world—and the world of business—a little bit differently (and a little bit irreverently), and they’ve helped hundreds of businesses and thousands of people communicate more powerfully as a result.
