    Basically, because some people have little understanding of themselves, they receive different results, and somehow conclude that this is a failure on the part of the test. It isn't. It's a personality test that categorizes you according to your "preferences" and ascribes a specific type. It can only do this if you answer honestly. The test also recommends that you read through the types and select which type best describes you, keeping in mind your results. All surveys are ultimately plagued by response bias; it's due to the fact that most people are stupid or ignorant, or both, and many are simply liars.

    I have tested as an INTJ from the very beginning, before I even knew of or understood the basics of MBTI, and have retested as an INTJ every single time. I was very surprised by how well the INTJ type seemed to reflect me.

    People, you are not so unique that you cannot be categorized.

    Tsk tsk tsk, even better when more than half the members are not actually INTP. It's a great place if drama and recycled garbage is what you want.

    What does that have to do with anything? I wouldn't join it if he said he'd light a match to the hairs on my ass...

    I was reading through a meta-thread there the other day on one of my rare visits, one of those where the reasons for the shortcomings fo the site are discussed and different members blame each other (some openly and as part of a group, while the worst ones of all go for the passive aggressive tactic of presenting their criticisms of others as "self-defence" and complaining about "cliquishness").

    It was quite a scary experience, because pretty much ever post I read sounded exactly like myself at varying levels of unhealthiness. They could even have been old psots I had written. Was like looking into a distorted fairground mirror which shows you the worst recesses of your own mind. Or perhaps also what having schizophrenia is like. Imagine loads of tiny versions of your own head, circling around you sniping at each other.

    I don't need movies, if I want to truly horriffy myself sometime I'll just go back to that thread.
