    To boost my already massive ego with the knowledge that I share the same 4 letter description of my identity as Nikola Tesla and Dr. House.

    For these mainly:
    Understanding and maximising your strengths
    Understanding and overcoming your weaknesses
    Understanding other people
    Understanding and improving social interactions

    little bit for this(or actually this comes from understanding myself):
    A self esteem boost

    and some other things that are not listed.

    cant vote because i dont use it the most for any particular thing and you didnt give option for multiple choices.

    That.

    (I also enjoy the colorful commentary Victor provides on the evil of MBTI and Sim -- god rest his soul -- provides on function theory.)

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    There were two in there that fit me...
    As a shorthand language to discuss/explore deeper concepts
    &
    Use? I'm an Intuitive...

    ...Ended up going with the former.
    What wasn't on that list but which I most use MBTI for?
    Stupid things. Stupid thoughts that make little sense.
