    I hardly give a damn about the underlying theory. MBTI is basically a good, accessible reframing of the common knowledge that there are differences in the way people perceive and act. For that, it's pretty useful.

    for the record, I put that my type's pretty uncertain

    I'm quite satisfied with the MBTI, and I am quite certain of my own type.

    DC, would you expect someone with more uncertain type to be less satisfied with the instrument?

    To me, MBTI is just "something to do."

    I am uncertain of my type.

    Yes. Because the less they know about MBTI, the less they will be satisfied with the instrument.

    I took lots of MBTI tests. But I am convinced about my type since I started studying the MBTI thoroughly, not only by reading type descriptions (because I can identify with aspects of another types), but the cognitive processes, which I can relate to much better than to any type description.

    How about if the uncertainty of type comes from having "too even" preferences as opposed to a lack of knowledge?
