  1. How accurate is MBTI?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    Anyone ever heard of Jon Niednagel? He is employed by 20+ professional sports teams to evaluate talent. What makes him unique is that he uses what he calls Brain Types to predict how a player might perform. At first athletes, coaches and team executives thought his philosophy was nuts until...
  2. [ISTP] What is the point of MBTI?

    ISTP Forum - The Mechanics
    What kind of practical applications do you find for it, specifically? I've tossed out the system and created my own, basically. I determine E or I based on how outgoing and forward the person is, rather then on extroverted or introverted dominant function. Then I can identify the other 3...

  4. [INFP] What aspect of personality cannot be explained thru MBTI?

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    There are certain things the test doesnt cover, but i just dont know yet. Theoretically, if i were to meet someone who answered the questions exactly i did, i would bet that we were still very different people, but how would i be different?

  6. [INTJ] Why are you INTJs interested in MBTI?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    Earlier today I was explaining MBTI theory to an INTJ (I got him to take the test a while ago but he has never known about the actual theory). He seemed very interested at first, but after some time he told me that he disagreed with this type of theory -he explained it as 'putting things into...
  7. Offend Friends When Asking to Take MBTI?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    How do you all get friends to take the MBTI test? How do you get those die-hard "individualists" to not be offended by a suggested "commonality"? Perhaps I am not refined enough to seduce them into MBTI? Many of my friends (or potential romantic pursuits) have felt like I'm trying to "put...
  8. Why did you take the MBTI?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    What caused you to take the MBTI? How did finding out you were an INTJ effect your perception of yourself? I took it for a college class on creating systems. Basically a how to create and manage projects. I was always looking for an excuse to be accepting of the way i am and not think my...
