Have any of you ever taken the Myer-Biggs personality test? I just finished it and it has absolutely blown my mind. Ive read about 50 pages of information on my personality type from literally dozens of websites and its so accurate it scares the hell out of me. It is literally my thoughts and actions detailed to the core. You know, we all think we are individual and unique. Nope. This thing was my biography and 2% of the world is exactly like me. That 2% includes Putin and Hitler... and Trump/Hillary Clinton. Yay, I seem likeable huh? They werent all bad though, M Thatcher, Winston Churchill and FDR were also on the list.

Anyways, I thought I would share if you have not ever done this, I would highly recommend it. Here is a link to the test:

The Myers-Briggs test is neither scientific nor reliable. I'm surprised @iPwn didn't beat me to this post.

Because I don’t care unless people are making claims on topics. Matts is having fun. Let him have his fun. It doesn’t matter.

I'm sparing him from the news that he has the personality of Donald Trump and Paris Hilton.

There's a sex tape joke in here somewhere...

Here you go @Matts4313:

 

Im not going to lie - that video did absolutely nothing for me. Claiming that the process is disqualified because the individuals that came up with it are not qualified by academia standards is retarded and short sighted. Plenty of normal people have invented great things. Most over educated people have a natural bias for the process that taught them, hence they are stooges for the system. Especially Lawyers, ;)

I don't care if that personality test has any legit validity or w/e, & it's weird to me when anybody classifies or identifies themselves as ANYTHING.. just do your thing.. crazy to me. Don't know why I'm even typing this now lol. Oh yeah when I hit reply I was gonna talk about how that dude on Adams Ruins Everything is like the exact opposite of the kinda guy I'd grab some brews and chill with. I don't know why I have unreasonable contempt for a fellow just doing his thing and making money by doing his TV job.. Something about him just reminds me of the kinda college kids I'm surrounded by on a daily basis. Why I hit reply to say that I don't really know either, but seemed reaaaly important to me a minute ago.

Unfortunately, there's not a youtube link of the full discussion. It went much further than that. Here are some articles if you're interested in why it's not reliable:

Also, my background doesn't lie on science. However, I do believe strongly in empirical data and the scientific method for obvious reasons. As conventional wisdom teaches us, you can always trust a lawyer. ;)

I'd totally grab a beer with the guy. He's the best type of nerd...funny with a self-deprecating sense of humor.

LOL Brian Cushing...

How many times do you get to say "Hey I'm really sorry to the fans and the organization for doing something I know I'm not supposed to do, multiple times now, and I fully accept my punishment" before the fans stop believing that you're really sorry? I mean, just be honest about it... "I know I might cost my team some wins by not being on the field, but damnit these PEDs sure are great, and I'll be doing them until I feel like stopping, regardless of the rules." 

At this point it's like Jon Jones saying he's back, and clean, and doing everything he can to repair his image...

Just retire already. Spoiler alert, YOU WILL GET CAUGHT AGAIN, dumbass.

Yeah, but he's just going to tell you why all your opinions on a subject are misguided, and the result of something other than the actual thing you're talking about. I'm with @jfinley88 on this, I'd pass on hanging out with a guy like that.

Im too lazy to read that. I will say this though - prior to taking that test I thought psychology as a whole was bunk. Hell, I once read that couples that go to marriage counseling have a 60% chances of divorce. Thats worse than not going at all. So, now that you know my stance, I will say that for me personally the test was balls on accurate. Maybe its bunk and I am an exception. Thats obviously not to say it applies to all.

That's a fair point. I should actually be praising him for his work ethic.
