Any thoughts on the Myers-Briggs?
« on: August 20, 2013, 07:29:24 AM »
I am interested in the Myers-Briggs inventory as a way of understanding not only myself but the way people react to one another? Has anyone had any experience with this tool? What are your thoughts with respect to it?

It was given to me back in my early days in the sheriffs office.  It was fascinating as I was still young and so many possibilities were ahead of me.  I've had other personality tests done on me.  I am an extrovert...go figure.

I took the Meyers-Briggs a million years ago and was designated an ENTJ.  The trick to doing this test is to get an expert's interpretation of the result.

I have learned in 65 years of working that anyone can be an expert that lives over 50 miles away.  They always cost more money.   :lol:  I know as I always got paid more to go fix problems that other would not or could not fix.
