    Leave it to an ENTP to come up with that sort of conclusion. I thought it could be dangerous to those who were really itching to be a type, but then I thought who could possibly enjoy that...

    but the possibility of screwing things up ALWAYS crosses my mind... perhaps you're right and ENTPs ARE evil

    But who is REALLY unbiased and sincere when answering such things?

    Me!

    But you're certainly right, and I think (Intuition again!) that the biggest problem with testing as opposed to analysis is that many people can't help but answer in the way they think will be perceived as "intelligent." It screws everything up. It's something I try to take into consideration when I design tests, but the same people can just end up answering randomly.

    I'm not going to say too much.. but the thought of considering an opposing view as my own repulses me too much. I can temporarily hold that for as long as a debate necessitates but when it comes to being truthful like on a test, I'm much more of a hard ass. I like to think about it, but not act upon it. The impulse is just for thought in my mind.

    Edit: although, the intelligence aspect is an issue on longer test's this one was to short for me to really ponder too much. It depends though, because I've taken numerous tests and have some knowledge of what they're asking so I was more decisive. I think the longer the need to reflect, the more time to be biased. Obviously if this is an intro test then people might skew results somewhat because of that self reflecting till a bias occurs.

    Tests work for the honest, or those who aren't bored, but for the rest of us, it just takes a lot of learning about MBTI shit and who/what we are.

    But that's just my opinion.

    I won't answer, because I'll overthink the answers.

    and yeah- I'm the type of asshole who screws with tests when bored.

    I screw with people when I'm bored, its strange. I don't do it for fun it's just something that passes time. Usually I avoid them or try hard not to engage. Test's and text are too inanimate for me to get really involved. I think up a lot of shit but acting out is way less appealing.

    People are fun though for me when it comes to manipulating my thought patterns to see different reactions.

    This assumes that the person taking the test doesn't know many NPs. I nearly answered no to that option because I'm overtired and couldn't think back more than a week - I've spent the past week almost exclusively in the company of INXPs.

    What they need is an MBTI test about taking tests!

    They could have questions like "Are you thinking about the hidden motives of this question?" (I guess you would be after being asked that, I need a rethink)

    Or even something like "I believe in the Validity of Tests? True/False" could help decide if someone was "S" or "N"

    Ok, I may have gotten a bit carried away...

    Okay, I revised question seven from (iirc lol):

    a. I prefer specific facts.
    b. I prefer general theory.

    To:

    a. I prefer hard fact.
    b. I prefer speculation.

    Better? Worse? The same?

    Haha, I actually thought about having some "meta" questions, like "Did you have a hard time deciding on a or b for the last question? But I think it would be too confusing. ;D
