Online dating personality test
When some people hear about my personality work, most people think of the Myers-Briggs Test, and tell me they are an ‘INFP’ or an ‘ENFJ’, and ask what I am and how it’s used at e Harmony.
The next part always shocks them: we don’t use the Myers-Briggs. When I tell them that the personality type they just told me isn’t used and doesn’t have much meaning to me, they can’t believe it.
He did this purely based on his own experiences, and not on any type of empirical testing of the theory.One of the biggest drawbacks of the Myers-Briggs is that it is not necessarily going to give you the same results if you take it again.Recent research has shown that about half of people who take the Myers-Briggs will get different results taking it a second time up to 5 weeks later!, there is little to no research published in the major personality academic journals.Research that has included the Myers-Briggs has shown that the questionnaire is not a reliable measure of personality.
