    For me, it was. Although I'd answered questionaires, the way the interviewer introduced the concepts, asked me to self-assess my likely result, compare the one that the test had given me with what she had explained the significance was, all added up to more assurety than I would have got from the test alone.

    The interview process contains self-validation.

    The interviewer/practitioner not only needs to come prepared to present the MBTI and its language, but also with answers regarding the instrument and underlying theory. All discussion must minimize Type/function-bias--both bias against and bias towards.

    I can discuss this further, but I have time constraints today.

    Yeah don't snigger when you type them as an F and they just told you they were logical and don't roll your eyes if they seem attracted to the ESTJ profile. Oh and try not to have an image of scrat running around in your head when you suspect the person is an ExFP
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Ah...and don't say "I'm INTP so I can't make a decision or be coherent."

    And so on.
