    MBTI does nothing more than tally up what you were forced to choose, whether it's true or not.
    MBTI forces a person to choose between S or N while the person is left with the likely consequence of having to deny part of themselves.
    The majority of questions are not mutually exclusive.

    Case in point:

    dreaming up imaginative ideas (N)
    getting things done as and when they arise (S)

    adding established facts to what I already know (S)
    uncovering new potential in other people or situations (N)

    I do all four of those, all the time. Period.

    To force me to choose between two things that are as natural to me as breathing, is unacceptable and misleading.
    Many of the questions are so unfair, it's like being asked if you prefer your left or right ventricle.
    People need both ventricles for optimal heart function.

    Using the same analogy, I need both S and N for optimal function.
    From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines.

    feels good, man.

    but seriously, I don't buy it (IQ). Everyone has their niche. I can draw pretty well but I can't repair a vehicle or dance and not appear like a complete idiot. All the IQ tests I've seen boil down to reading, mathematics, and patterns.

    I'm sure multiple people have mentioned that already but this thread is one big TL;DR.

    Everyone in their right place, everyone has their own purpose, and niche.

    IQ is just an aptitude test that reflects how good you are at taking an IQ test.

    I think there is some merit to it, but in the same breath, for those of us who think way outside of the boxesphere, we see a question from a multitude of sides and are like, wait, what exactly do you want me to answer, again? Too many possibilities, mang!!!

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. Using everything as well as possible, striving for balance, is the only natural path for me, too.

    Wow, ISTP is pretty far down there. I demand a rezoning of districts and a new chart to be created based on the rezoning

    Also, to be petty, I did notice that ENFPs pwn at representing the gifted population!

    15.45%

    W00t!!!

    That ain't half bad!

    That information is almost entirely irrelevant, though, without factoring in their percentage in the total population/sample. It's the disparity between % in the gifted population and % in the normal population that matters.
