Annie Murphy Paul's Opinions

Perhaps no other personality test has achieved the cult status of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. ...the Myers-Briggs has also been embraced by a multitude of individuals who experience a revelation (what devotees call the "aha reaction") upon learning about psychological type. Their enthusiasm persists despite research showing that as many as three-quarters of test takers achieve a different personality type when tested again, and that [it has] no scientific basis whatsoever.
