I can use MBTI and Enneagram. There is a ton of literature that helps me to interpret things and evaluate meaning.
    Well, the thing that strikes me is that Big Five is actually very similar to MBTI except it has one extra dichotomy. So, how can MBTI be completely worthless, but Big Five isn't?
    A path is made by walking on it.

    I would turn it around and ask why is Big 5worthless?

    There is just... so much criticism. I'm on the fence for MBTI. I prefer other systems, but am still interested in MBTI nonetheless because it's a part of the bigger picture.
    The criticism is only of value to the extent that it is valid and useful What's wrong with the system based on your experience?

    I think some of your uncertainty is based on your own lack of clarity about your own personality type. Let me ask a question. I've provided some some thoughts as you know. What's the observation? What do YOU think?

    I told you what I thought your type was. You could be some thing different though. INTP for example. You need to decide whatever it is.

    While your points aren't completely invalid, that wasn't really what I was getting at. This isn't about my type at all, it is about what I have read regarding criticism of MBTI.

    You seem irritated, perhaps I am misreading your tone though.

    I am mixing those things up. I think you are an INFP or INTP.

    Anyway, the rest of it is pure conjecture I suppose.
