Type Over Hype

Calling the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator one of my hobbies isn’t entirely accurate; it would be like someone whose knowledge of cinema doesn’t extend beyond 1990s Hong Kong actioners calling themselves a “movie buff.” And according to Myers-Briggs, I’m an INTJ—which means the only type I’m interested in is my own.

It’s the most popular personality test in the world, used by corporations for decades to screen applicants, and self-help buffs to analyze and understand themselves and others.
