    What does that have to do with the answers being accurately reflective of a type?

    If 10 people want to eat BBQ chicken right now, they're all the same MBTI type. Brilliant.

    I'm almost positive that some of you Ne types who look at these options start squeezing out the possibility to the nth agree, all within a nanosecond, and find some correlation to your behavior. If you looked at them without extracting so much info, you'll fall in place... more or less. I think you could at least single out the Ti types. or Fe types. etc.

    I don't just like one thing all the time so this is entirely invalid for me.

    e.g. today I might want to play chess the most but maybe tomorrow I won't feel like it and would rather quietly speculate on practical ideas.

    I don't see how this can be representative of types at all unless we're supposed to go into the abstract ideals of what each things represent, but at that point we may as well forego the obfuscation and just call the things by what they represent. Might as well just say "INTP" instead of "Play Chess".

    Another way to frame it is if you actually have a "Chess" like mode of thinking, in general. Not necessarily if you want to play chess at some time.

    That said, that one in particular could be labeled better.

    Yeah. Problem is that we're no longer taking it at face value. It no longer means "what would you like to do most?" if we're doing that.

    This would make the answers not only unintuitive, but unreasonable as well. If the Chess option is only for a certain type, and there happens to be one (I'd presume many) who don't like chess and on first guess they pick something else, then they're already mistyped. If they have to go and interpret stuff in abstract ways then it's anyone's guess because we've gone off plan and into personal interpretation where just about anything can happen.

    Edit: and now that I think of it, this is probably why tests are so lengthy most of the time and some of them even repeat questions. I'd assume there's controls and probably some complex averaging involved in some of them to account for variance within types.

    Exactly.

    Not sure why Ne types are being told they are erroneously taking the test on one hand, and yet in the same breath they're being told they have to read into the test in order to take it properly.

    For the record, I took the test in about ten seconds, skimming through the answers. I certainly did not "overthink" the test. And since I was on cell, the answer page did not work correctly, and it looked like I got INTP on the test, but I think actually I got ENTP. The page was poorly laid out and programmed, so it was confusing as to what answer one got.

    I remember reading the list and thinking I need to pick chess if I wanted to game the test and get a stereotypical INTP answer; maybe when I was ten years old, I would have picked that answer, but since I've matured a lot, I find it more rewarding to study the world and how it works rather than sit around and focus on a single solitary game such as chess. I'm also very sure of my E/I rating, so it's not a matter of me being mistyped; the reality is that I'm not a cliche INTP, so a one-question test is ineffective.
