And the result was 76

Hullo Readers!

So, after a long no-post, I decided days ago to revive this old blog, thanks to Forever Amber here. And being a sanguine, only Heaven knows how long I can stay on track without going “Oh!

And some geeks. Like me. The MBTI itself is still being debated on its, err…. empirical nature. Last time I checked here, it was a theory proposed by Jung and later developed further by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. Hence the name, Myers-Briggs.

A friend of mine once argued that typing personality cannot be fixed Continue reading
