@frostedechoes Very well said. I hope my earlier comment about the MBTI being based on self-reporting didn't imply that I thought it was unreliable. I meant only that unconscious expectations and unexamined biases have probably played a role in the test’s outcome over the years, especially among people who take it outside a clinical environment or without other contextualizing assessments — like those simplified, watered-down online quizzes. (And of course, even a skewed test can tell us about how we want to see ourselves.)
