Is it possible or desirable to transcend MBTI ?
It is not desirable to transcend MBTI because MBTI is a form of social control.
We are born without control of even our splincter and we learn control slowly and painfully over the next 22 years, at which age our brains are fully developed.
So MBTI is desirable for those who have not yet learnt full control - to take MBTI from them would be cruel.
But for those who have learnt control, it is possible and desirable to transcend MBTI.
And it becomes easy to transcend MBTI simply by looking at its history.
Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Meyers created the MBTI to facilitate the movement of women into the industrial workforce in order to wage war, in fact World War II.
And interestingly they based the MBTI entirely on the book, "Psychological Types", by Carl Gustave Jung.
Carl Jung was an enthusiastic supporter of the NAZI Party.
And when the President of the Psychoanalytic Association resigned as a matter of conscience at the reification of Jews, Slavs and Negros, Carl Jung volunteered to be the President of the Association to help the Nazis carry out their program of reification.
And Carl Jung helped them by writing the book, "Personality Types", to complement the Somatic Types of the Nazis. And the Somatic Types of the Nazis were Jews, Slavs, Negros, Asians and Aryans.
And it is from this book that Mrs Briggs and her daughter copied to make the MBTI.
The purpose of Somatic Types was to reify livling people as was the purpose of Carl Jungs, "Personality Types".
And to reify means to objectify - to turn living people into objects - because killing a living person is difficult but liquidating and object is much easier.
And so those who have failed to learn control, who have failed to gain their independence, rely on MBTI as a psychological crutch.
MBTI reifies them and prevents them from realising themselves as free, living people.
So for those unable or unwilling to gain their independence, MBTI acts as an authoritarian substitute.
And the only price you pay for MBTI is your moral courage and of course your dignity.
