Meyers-Briggs? [Mar. 19th, 2007|10:40 pm]
I am occasionally fascinated by personality tests. I discovered the Myers-Briggs test in high school, and really liked it because not only did it describe me pretty well, the book I had explained the motivations of people who are different than me quite well. (The enneagram, on the other hand, makes no sense at all to me.)

What do you think?

Do you think the MBTI is accurate?

It's got me pegged
it's pretty good
it's totally worng
I don't know what you're even talking about

What do you test as?

(I tested as crossover INFP/INTP/ENFP/ENTP back then, which still seems pretty accurate to me. I have a difficulty taking it any more because I like that classification and have a hard time not trying to game the answers, and because my answer to many of the questions is "it totally depends" -- which is consistent with being split on the related scores.)

Just in case someone doesn't want to take the test and wants a quick-n-dirty result, just see which "prayer" fits you best from the following ones. ;-)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a popular psychometric instrument popularized by Kiersey & Bates in "Please Understand Me".

The following was emailed to me by a colleague. Those familiar with MBTI will get a giggle out of it.
