    Would you be willing to elaborate on how it is used to manipulate?

    He means that all type descriptions are made to fit into our Western value oriented society, but would suck big time if you'ld try to describe the Arabian World, China or traditional Russia with it. The types are oriented towards our working environment and are therefore no real measurement for the answer people could be seeking in a quest for self.

    If you want to teach it tho to people to become more happy with their jobs, good luck I hope you are successful. I only hope I wont live until the day in which I have to be a certain mbti type to get accepted in a job interview

    The whole point of it being taught in the work force in this day in age is to help people understand eachothers differences in communication styles....right?

    Teachers don't always put a label to an MBTI type! Mine didn't...

    Honestly, I would be far more interested in counseling than anything. And though it's useful as a career tool, I find it far more useful in understanding one's strengths and weaknesses. Using myself as an example, and I suppose the reason for why I became attracted to mbti in the first place, is because I basically saw myself as a screw up, that was overemotional, horrible at school, way too impulsive, etc. It helped me to understand myself and over time accept myself, as well as work on my weak areas, and be proud of myself for my strengths. I think too many people are led down the path they are on, simply because of societal pressure to do so, or family pressure, etc. and have difficulty finding pleasure in their lives. But this is where I see understanding one's own type as useful. "Perhaps I'm not meant for the traditional route, because I'm not a traditional person, and I don't see things the same as traditionalist or rationalist and therefore, I fore go trying, as it won't bring me personal happiness, the goal of every man. And instead, find a road that will make ME happy." Understanding that I am an introverted feeler has really helped me to put a perspective on where I fit in, and why I don't in others.

    Really? You couldn't describe the traditional Russian or Arabic world with it? How come I've met an Iranian ISTJ and an ENTJ who had never been outside of Russia in his life until he came to the U.S. for a few months? (yes, they both actually took the test, and I knew the ISTJ was an ISTJ before he took it, and knew the ENTJ was an ENxJ before he took it).

    I think functionality/function order explains all, no matter which culture, bro. Anyone who can't differentiate between cultures probably has too shallow of an understanding of personality theory.
