Meyers-Briggs? [Mar. 19th, 2007|10:40 pm]
Beemer
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
9(36.0%)
it's pretty good
12(48.0%)
meh
4(16.0%)
it's totally worng
0(0.0%)
I don't know what you're even talking about
0(0.0%)

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.)

Supposedly, it’s more to help you understand other people’s dysfunctions. But I find it helps legitimize my existence to the type of people who only believe what they see written in popular books. Like Fundamentalist Christians.
