Science aside, Myers Briggs is more than just a fad: It's a highly
useful CYA tool for HR departments.

On a more serious note, see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Briggs_Type_Indicator#Validity and
subsequent paragraphs.

With all due respect, Tony, the "science" behind personality typing is
pretty flakey.

It's based on

1. Statistical modelling from nowhere near representative samples and 2.
Psychological models and personality theories that contain so many known
flaws and controversies the only thing guaranteed about them is that
they will be discarded in the future.

That's not to say people like yourself may not get some benefit out of
trying to implement or reflect on some of the conceptual themes
involved.

It's just to say...its a fad!
