    • "The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an alleged assessment of one's personality type. It aims to classify how individuals view the world through a questionnaire and categorizing people based on four different dichotomies. Psychologists don't actually use it (it's not very good), but businesses love it."

    • Yes I agree, that article seems to lack background research, it's a rational article but based on too little background information.

      Reading CPPs PR-material for MBTI here must be a minimum requirement before rationally criticizing MBTI.

      Too bad statements in that article is not referenced, hard to check if facts are correct. There are a lot of issues with MBTI and the biggest one is that dichotomies are assumed.

      The polarities of each dichotomy is never tested in isolation, and that fact would invalidate statistical methods such as correlations, cronbachs alpha and others used to sell the instrument.
