    So MBTI can't be understood without understanding its context. And its context is a country that has been perpetually at war for seventy years.

    And the flywheel of their whole economy is military spending.

    So MBTI is part of shaping your personality rather than analysing, evaluating and integrating your personality.

    From its very beginning MBTI has been part of the American war machine and remains part of the war machine today.
    Thats only if you believe in a single path. A concept can be used only one way, for one thing. If this is the case, then I suggest you do not learn MBTI or you may become nothing more then a war machine.

    What if its meant as protection mechanism, not to be part of a war machine, but to be part of a defensive system. A system designed to protect the weak, the vulnerable, a system that wants to avoid war, but must engage in concepts that may have stemmed from war and may create war. To not utilize concepts outside of what it was initially used for would be like having to recreate the wheel because you dont like the car the wheel was connected to. To judge the whole based on a part.
    Im out, its been fun

    Sure it can.

    Absolutely everything about everyone is captured in sixteen archetype descriptions. So long as those live on, so do we.
