I hope this is just a parlor trick and you aren't planning to
use this for anything remotely business-related. Meyer-Briggs
can be disturbingly accurate, the way horoscopes can be
disturbingly accurate. This is an awful tool in the hands of an
HR department.

All us folks who responded onlist and questioned the premise of
Meyers-Briggs are clearly ENTPs ;-) Actually, I think most tech
writers are INTPs, but they are too shy to respond to your poll.

Now everybody go out and do something contrary to type.
