September 18, 2018 article in the Globe and Mail about how the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator was developed. Interesting, as the developers started this at their kitchen table - an informal start, having no degrees in psychology or psychiatry. According to the author, professor Merve Emre, investigating this test, much of its history is hidden. She was not allowed access to archives about one of the founders of this popular test used by many for decades: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/lif...overed-about-the-origins-of-the-myers-briggs/ Oxford professor, Merve Emre, has written The Personality Brokers: The Strange History of Myers-Briggs and the Birth of Personality Testing. "Emre delivers what she eventually uncovered - the story of two women, who despite their lack of any formal training, created one of the most, popular personality tests in the world". Emre said: " I don't want to dismiss this or belittle it, but for many people the indicator continues to be valuable and continues to speak to them, despite the fact it has no basis in any verifiable theory of human personality and that there's no evidence for either its validity or its reliability." The article closes with Professor Emre saying: " I think it's really dangerous that the indicator makes people's psychological livelihood available to people in power at corporations, or schools or or any type of institution." This all sounds very familiar..... The more I learn about the underpinnings of the "science of psychology", the more I wonder if much of it is based on what air ferns eat.
