    Default Research idea for Psychology club...need feedback

    So I've loved MBTI for a long time (and used to lurk here quite a bit). I became Vice President of my college's psychology club and have been trying to come up with some ideas to discuss during meetings. One thing I would like to do is some campus-wide research.

    One of my ideas is an MBTI test. I would like to administer a quick and accurate (the one Keirsey has in his books seem like a good choice) test to the club members, psychology majors, and possibly other majors. I would like to see if we get correlations on majors/interests and MBTI type. I've only talked about this with the President though, so nothing is final. I do have some questions though.

    Would anyone recommend a different test (preferably something that is short, as this would be a completely voluntary test)?
    MBTI tests can give inaccurate results sometimes based on how people answer the questions. How should I instruct them to answer?
    Any other cool research ideas that can be carried out in a semester (possibly relating to MBTI)?
    Any other suggestions in general?

    Thanks. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. Feedback is appreciated

    The keys II cognition test is the most accurate one I've encountered, even though it's a JCF test which some people don't truly associate with MBTI. I'm not sure it's as short as you're looking for though.

    ...Uh, I'd say just tell them to not think about it too much. If they find themselves fluctuating between multiple responses they should probably go with the one that came to mind first.





    You probably know the MBTI better than I do anyways, so be sure to take what I say with a grain of salt. Just my two cents.

    here you go https://www.cpp.com/en/mbtiproducts.aspx?pc=10

    i dont think there is any use for free tests or tests outdated by 20 years, since they cant offer the reliability you need for any sort of research.

    Yep, that's the one I was looking at. Its short and simple.

    While I agree, I'd rather try to not spend a lot of money on this if I can. I'd like a free test. With whatever test I get I'm going to have a few close friends take it to see if it can be accurate. I think I'm going to have to provide short type descriptions too in case anyone feels they were typed wrong.

    #1 rule to research = use instruments with high enough validity and reliability or dont do it at all, since its just a waste of time due to results not being trustworthy. Wasnt this the first thing they told you in psychological research course?
