I think every personality test is flawed

In that when they ask you a question, it's very obvious what they are asking you about. In an MBTI the question's are SO OBVIOUS.

Do you feel that you need some down time after large social outings?

Oh gee...I wonder what aspect of me they are testing..could it be Introverted or Extraverted? Yeah..I'm thinking that's it.


Do you think things through or act on how you feel about the sitution?

Oh gee...let's see here...could it be...Thinking or Feeling?
Yep..I'm pretty sure that's what that's about.


And ALL these tests do it. They ask YOU to answer a VAGUE question about yourself, when it's OBVIOUS what they want to know about. I can't think of a worse way to implant SO SO much bias into the test.

Well what you're describing is a knock-off amateur test that you can take online for free right? the real one is $150 I think, and maybe it's different.

Ha, you indeed caught me in the flaw I noticed after I posted this. Yes, I am basing this on internet MBTI tests. I'd like to take a real one actually. I'm willing to bet I'll get to take one for my personality theory course.

the only way to make those things accurate is to have 10,000 questions on it so they can really narrow that shit down.
