Because they need *some* situation applying to *most* people and where everyone can made a decision. If there are a finite set of answers, you'll probably prefer another one than is stated. Just statistics.In addition, you would have to have different kinds of answers other than just two lame-ass ones. For example, in the television one, why isn't there an option called: "I wouldn't sit my ass down in front of a television - I don't even own one."
I would watch nothing at all. I would probably be writing. Other persons would clean the house, go out walking in the rain,.... It is just a situation you can imagine and choose between the alternatives. Even I, who NEVER watch TV at all unless husband turns the damned thing on, am able to choose.
No.FERK, does that make me an INTP just because I wouldn't watch some lame-ass football game and I would study for my test???
If I had to choose between desperate housewives and football, I choose football. Probably because I can stare at the screen and not seeing football at all, but when there is a hint of a story going on, I would not be able to shut it out.
If I have to study for a test, I would study. Especially if the test was tomorrow.
Gauche, does the test question discern between J and P?
