    And what is the goal of that simplification? Especially by means of a theory that is weak and applied haphazardly?

    Understanding, what else? As long as it sufficiently explains the phenomenon without any contradictions, then it is useful as a theory.

    Define "weak" and define "applied haphazardly".

    Typology is a crude dissection of the psyche. That's what makes it weak. To use a weak theory to further simplify reality, is to invite inaccuracy. What is the point then?
    Since it is applied to everyone, even pets, dispite it's weakness and lack of clarity, it is haphazardly applied.

    Wikileaks is now exposing Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of Gaddafi the dictator, and Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, the Defence Minister of Germany, as plagiarists.

    In the same way Wikileaks may expose Mrs Briggs and her daughter Mrs Myers as plagiarists as well.

    I no longer believe it's useful for anything except as a tool to understand ourselves and maybe a partner.
    There is a danger in typing others, or believing you speak on behalf of the type.
    MBTI invites prejudice and fanaticism. It borders on dogma and doctrine to some.
    Carl Jung Himself, warned of this, and said every individual is the exception to the rule.
