Facts to back up my conclusion, mostly from wikipidea which as we all know, is the truth.
^ Instrument? What?"The MBTI instrument is called"
^ I was believing this whole charade / guessing-game, until I saw the words 'develop' followed by a female name. And to top it off, some included offspring of the same gender. Doesn't make any sense."The original developers of the personality inventory were Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter"
^ That part doesn't even need any explanation."lacks convincing validity data."
^ More contradictions. One must not understand the world is round to know the world is round."is designed to implement a theory; therefore the theory must be understood to understand the MBTI."
^ Another quote that describes this "system" very well."From a theoretical perspective, noted psychologist H.J. Eysenck calls the MBTI a moderately successful quantification of Jung's original principles as outlined in Psychological Types. However, both models remain theory, with no controlled scientific studies supporting either Jung's original concept of type or the Myers-Briggs variation."
^ I have to agree with those 2 statements at the time they were made."MBTI IS SUCH A JOKE. FUCK." - Ghandi and Freddie Foxx
^ Forced-choice? Who else does that shit. Scientologists, really bad shrinks like Briggs, Elton John and maybe even war-criminals."The current North American English version of the MBTI Step I includes 93 forced-choice questions (there are 88 in the European English version)"
^ Moderately successful, indeed."The results of the assessment should not be used to "label, evaluate, or limit the respondent in any way.""
^ I don't think the same applies for DISC. At least DISC doesn't try to be something else than what it is."Some researchers have interpreted the reliability of the test as being low."
