What I want to know is why no one has successfully developed a test for personal integrity. Huh? Why is that? This myth of being true to yourself has NO ADEQUATE OBJECTIVE TEST! The people who are being true to themselves are the key witness in the case! Obviously it is immensely useful that no objective test exist. And there's your cult of individuality. All these people running around claiming individuality, THE BETTER TO INFLICT THEIR INDIVIDUAL WHIM ON OTHERS!
Individuality is surely the most destructive, long lasting myth ever to attempt to destabilise society. Luckily, society knows better. We will slap down this individuality craze with as many labels as possible!
I hereby label this message "Warning No. 7 billion and 12", and I feel better for it. Join us.
Go to sleep, iguana.
INTP. Type 1>6>5. sx/sp. Live and let live will just amount to might makes right
That self-actualisation hippie pyramid bullshit pisses me quite off.
It's totally possible to have creativity, vitality, playfulness without having some of the steps under it (love, belongingness, self-esteem, sleep, safety, sex...).
This is just trying to give the impression that only a totally pampered individual in a kindergarten society can achieve things. I believe in the opposite.
About the MBTI, it's an interesting, but very flawed description too, for people who think or feel they fit well into it, it can give a good description of how they work, and therefore provide elements to understand them and know how to interact with them.

average of many test results combined
Those who practice MBTI delve into a projected version of themselves :the archetype. When they do this, they focus on the archetype rather than the individual self. As a result, they cannot improve themselves.
Furthermore, when society is segmented in such a way; as the individuals are tagged and coded like the MBTI propagates, the individuals prejudge each other and stick with their own "kind". Consequentially, you will find a "sensor talk" room in Ventrillo, and you will find disseminated forums labeled with their respective temperaments.
So when unhealthy individuals of unhealthy temperaments compound with each other, they exacerbate their own health problems like a schizophrenic family who refuses to interact with other, different families.
This is basically true, but at least it gets people noticing and legitimizing fundamental differences between people, which is a good first step toward building real empathy.
If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
