    Cool Resistance is futile?

    I know there are limitations to the MB test.

    I know that people can't be classified into "boxes".

    Yet, MB temperaments are astonishingly right on in their accuracy.

    Which temperament is most likely to refuse categorization? Too many of my friends reject the test for the reasons stated above.

    I find it amusing.

    I theorize that the ISTJ is the most likely to be just so inclined to have interest in taking tests and reading about the systems, but too fact oriented to really understand the differences in types. Countless times, I've seen them take type descriptions literally, and therefore include themselves in every other type they read about. It doesn't cross their minds that the differences are only in degree, the degree isn't quite definable, and yet the system can still be valid.

    I came to know that typology makes a difference between "temperaments" and "traits".

    Keeping that in mind you really need a trait to find out about yourself in a way it is shown here.

    Therefore it is hard to say, whether a certain temperament would refuse categorization or not. I wouldnt pinpoint down a certain one, because I know I would be wrong from a different point of View of a person of that temperament.
