  1. Accuracy of Personality Tests

    What's my personality type?
    What is your view on accuracy of personality tests? Each time I've taken one I've gotten a different result. I've taken them on different websites and at different times. And when you get a result, people of the same type can have some qualities of that type that others of the same type do not...
  2. Best Evidence & Arguments for the MBTI's Validity

    Myers Briggs Forum
    I've seen the arguments and the claims that MBTI isn't valid, but having found a lot of value and accuracy in it personally, I'm curious what are the best evidence and arguments in support of the MBTI. Anecdotal is good, scientific is even better. Logical arguments are also useful, but we know...
  3. Would You Be Comfortable with Putting "X" In Place of Feeling or Thinking?

    Blog
    For seven years I identified as--and was basically satisfied with-- INTJ, which is what Humanmetrics gave me as my personality type when I took the long test. This past year, however, I've gotten INTP almost as often: On 16Personalities; on Hello Quizzy; and on various other online tests. I...

  5. [INTP] mbti (especially assessment II) vs. the big 5

    INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Just curious what everyone else's interpretation is of which indicator is a better evaluator of mindset. Apparently the big 5 is backed with the most evidence, although it seems very behaviorally biased. I will give reasons why I think mbti does a better job at having myself evaluate myself...
  6. [INTJ] The Test - Accurate or Nonsense?

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I'm sure there have been loads of debates on whether or not the famous Myers-Briggs test is worth its weight in gold, but I'm not intending for this to become a nasty argument or anything. [Disclaimer] I'd like to know how you all (INTJs especially, but anyone is welcome to answer) personally...
  7. [INFP] Instinctual Variant (sp,sx,so)

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    So, I'm pretty sure that my dominant "function" is sx, but I cant decide between the two others (second dominant function). I find the whole concept of these variants to be a little strange. To me it seems like its not even a whole working system in itself anyways (not like the enneagram and...
  8. Personality as subjective label; questions about validity

    What's my personality type?
    How can one be sure he knows himself enough to take on a label such as a personality type, especially when he can't guarantee that he'll be the same from one day to the next? It's true that most people would say that they aren't the same as they were when they were a teenager, or when they were...
