    That stuff about the T/F; that's simply an imbalance in the test. It doesn't mean all two-option questions are biased towards T.

    I wouldn't believe them being biased towards any particular preference in all cases.

    Let's take the classical head-heart question. So you're asked if you decide with your head or your heart? Person might feel slightly towards F in the question, and they would choose an answer indicating they decide "a little more with heart" if such answer would be available.

    See the illustration.

    If such a weak response is not available, the person is forced to choose the one and only "F" response, even if they wouldn't feel that way to such a great extent.

    If these kinds of answers accumulate (like in my illustration), it will bring an error in the result, as noted.
