    This podcast was so helpful to me today with understanding the unhealthy expressions of my husband and son’s personalities. I have been struggling with them lately. I have learned to much from you, Joel and Antonia and although I don’t know you personally, I consider you to be mentors and like close friends. Thank you so much for the way you encourage others to not only understand their type, but to grow and become the best version of themselves ❤️
