OK, Bob, now you are really spooking me. I though I was the only vehemently anti-Myers/Briggs person around. Guess it really is the baby brain bin again. Years ago, a consultant came to a day care center I was working at, following a major upheaval that split the staff into angry factions. As part of the "healing" process, we did a seminar on working with all types of people, etc. Of course, we were given the Myers-Briggs. Well, I was the only one who actually read the preface of the material we were given, the part that describes how this tool was normed (I believe it was about a handful of white, male university professors). And I seemed to be the only one who had difficulty with the forced dichotomies, and the fact that a variation in score of a few points would tip you into the opposite characteristic, even if you were almost exactly in the middle. The other people were thrilled with the descriptions, felt they described them to a T. I read a few of them and could see how suggestive they were, how one could possibly identify with several different types.
