    Problem is the results change with your state of mind. Which makes sense, since you don't always behave the same way

      Is that true with all personality tests though?

      Might be valid if combined with some life circumstance metrics, but this would complicate things

      MB classifies people only by the direction of four variables, not by their quantities.

      For those with values near zero, their sign may switch from time to time.

      The scores the test finds are fairly consistent though, and correlate well with the Big Five model.

    It does not have any predictive power. And it shouldn't have. Mbti is helpful in understanding how you might adjust your style and how different could be work preferences of your colleagues. Anything more than that is unwarranted. It won't tell you who will be successful in what kind of roles.

      No, but it's been superceded by the Big Five personality traits.
