Acknowledging Type

We interrupt this series on gift-giving to mention a recent article in the Washington Post called Does it pay to know your type?  Those of us who happen to think that – yes – it does pay to know your type were delighted to read that the MBTI is now 50 years old and still being used.

I loved reading and being reminded of the history of the MBTI, its vast success in the business world, and the ongoing criticism that it has really not been rigorously tested in the same ways other psychometric instruments have been.  Do check out the link if only to see what personality types are connected to which celebrity.

Who knew that I’m a Ben Franklin married to Mother Theresa?  And a mother of Andrew Carnegie and Oscar Wilde?

Check it out.  You’ll be glad you did.
