    In what scientific peer review journal have the methodology and results of these tests been published?

    There's this one, a metastudy (looking at many articles testing its reliability) of sorts from Educational and Psychological Measurement.

    Its conclusion?

    A resounding ... ...

    "Eh."

Typology is a descriptive model which can be used to predict human interaction - some observation has been used to form the models, but that doesn't make it scientific.
    This.

    And btw this is also my argument for astrology.

    I took an additional half-second out of my terribly busy life to add the word "reliability" to that search.
    http://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=...n&as_sdt=0%2C5

    For:
    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was submitted to a descriptive reliability generalization (RG) analysis to characterize the variability of measurement error in MBTI scores across administrations. In general, the MBTI and its scales yielded scores with strong internal consistency and test-retest reliability estimates, although variation was observed.
    (though that article is a meta-analysis and so possibly worth a good deal.)

    Against:
    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has achieved widespread use in organizational settings, despite the fact that research on its dimensionality has been scarce and that some studies have questioned the validity of its four-factor scoring system.
    The reliability data of the MBTI bring into question the stability of the test. How is it possible that there can be a change in personality, across a short interval, when such a change should not occur? The reliability data also bring into question whether there are meaningful differences across the preference categories.
    As the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator becomes increasingly popular as a management and training tool, criticisms of its reliability, validity, and effectiveness have arisen
    Edwards et al. (2002) also detail a series of studies indicating that the MBTI's reliability scores increase when the instrument uses scaled response rather than dichotomous or categorisation scoring

    And this is a Study, not a random double blind experiment.
