    Default What MBTI can't do

    People become fanatics. They want to talk about MBTI all the time. Well, what can't MBTI do? What about an individual, beside the obvious, does MBTI not account for in the general population?

    Thumbs down MBTI and the War Machine

    MBTI has been very effective for seventy years. Four million Americans do the MBTI test every year not counting the rest of us.

    MBTI was invented by Mrs Briggs and her daughter Mrs Myers to fight WW II. And it has been so successful it has been adopted by the military/industrial complex for the last seventy years.

    So MBTI can't be understood without understanding its context. And its context is a country that has been perpetually at war for seventy years.

    And the flywheel of their whole economy is military spending.

    So MBTI is part of shaping your personality rather than analysing, evaluating and integrating your personality.

    From its very beginning MBTI has been part of the American war machine and remains part of the war machine today.

    Thoroughly explain why people behave the way they do or predict how exactly they'll behave.

    MBTI is here and now in generalised terms. There's no why.
