    I did consider altering my answers on the profiling tool to match what I thought they wanted, but at the time I was so miserable trying to fit in with the company I was at, that my general attitude towards a new company was "fuck them, if they dont like who i really am, I dont want to work there"

    My INTP mercenary used to work in recruiting and he said huge numbers of people cheat and get excluded. However he, like Rasofy, said he didnt cheat because he thought it would be obvious that they were looking for cheaters.
    So the lesson we learned today is that honesty is the best policy.

    Absolutely, but not to the extent that it would be completely opposite to my actual personality.

    I'm a little offended that you think we 'd have to...given that we're so desirable. At least to employers...

    Why do they care if someone cheats on an unethical test whose results aren't even used to select certain types over others?? And how can they tell a cheater from someone who just doesn't understand the questions, or answers in a "work" mindset, or as they would like to be, all honest mistakes often made on these tests?

    i think its misuse of MBTI to hire based on type, not to mention that its morally wrong. so yes i would(and easily could) if it gave me some advantage

    That was my initial reaction to the title of this thread. NT is a great combo!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Interesting. I assumed a sophisticated company would do something similar.

    I did consider altering my answers on the profiling tool to match what I thought they wanted, but at the time I was so miserable trying to fit in with the company I was at, that my general attitude towards a new company was "fuck them, if they dont like who i really am, I dont want to work there"
    Hah. That reminded me of this classic scene:




    I suppose a good head hunter would be interested in people who have learned to recognize their shortcomings (that's huge, and quite rare).

    No "I'm too perfectionist" bullshit.

    Besides, when there are tons of supposedly "very hardworking"+"very disciplined"+"very cooperative"+"excellent at managing"+"excelent at whatever" people applying, using some calculated honesty becomes the best option to stand out.

    My INTP mercenary used to work in recruiting and he said huge numbers of people cheat and get excluded. However he, like Rasofy, said he didnt cheat because he thought it would be obvious that they were looking for cheaters.
    Nice.

    It would also be troublesome to have your employer eventually find out that your results do not fit your real personality at all. So, I concur with you. I would alter it if I felt it was necessary, but I would do it in very small doses.

    wait... if they aren't used for selection, how are the tests still unethical?

    another question: if mbti tested for development -how well developed is a certain cognitive ability - rather than preference, would it still be unethical? how would that be different from wanting to know your mathematical aptitude or linguistic ability?
