Thanks for this btcprox.

    We need to shed the outdated and self-diagnosed notions of binary personality because it’s not useful for understanding who we really are.
I totally agree with this. Personality typing fails even more when people use it as an excuse instead of a tool to understand a tendency that they may have. Most labels get in the way of learning communication skills that we can call upon when we face difficult situations.

If you get a chance, read Malcom Gladwell's examination of the nonsense of Myers-Briggs. The article is called "Personality Plus" and was originally published in The New Yorker.
