    Default Most Valid Personality Test That Is Free?

    I am planning to do an extensive statistics project in which I get a random sample of Duke students and have them take a Meyers-Briggs test along with the survey (where they answer questions such as.. are you in a fraternity? what's your gender? where are your from?) and I'm going to compare results and see what comes up. I'm just hoping for a high response rate.. lol.

    Which free MBTI test would you recommend?
    MBTI Type: iNTj
    Enneagram Type: 3w4 sp/sx

    If you'd have asked me a decade ago, I could've given you a rundown on all the popular tests. I don't take them anymore, so I'm not the man with the data.

    If you don't find a good one, I could perhaps write a very short (12 questions probably) test for you. I wrote one like that circa 2000 which worked very well in its limited use, but I no longer have it.

    Contact the publisher of the real MBTI. CPP, Inc. - Leaders in Workforce Development. If your research design is solid they do provide free product to researchers. Sometimes. And they can be done online...

    In lieu of the actual MBTI, the best free online test is the Thomson-Maidenbaum Personality Inventory (TMPI), which can be found here:

    And if I only could,
    I'd make a deal with God,
    And I'd get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    With no problems.

    - Kate Bush
