Three Stages of Utilizing Personality Types

There exist three distinct stages of using personality type systems.

Popular personality type systems include Myers-Briggs, Enneagram (or Ennegram), and others; these are self-test driven and subjectively determined.

The first stage of applying personality types is discovering a system and finding your type, such as Achiever—Loyalist—Enthusiast, or Extraverted-Thinking. You marvel at the progress of your self-discovery and are excited about the prospect of being able to determine how other people function too.

The second stage of utilizing personality types is confusion about why various people classify the same person several different ways. You’re sure the job applicant is an Investigator-Peacemaker, Extraverted-Feeling, but your co-worker swears she’s an Individualist-Challenger, Introverted-Thinking.

The third stage of using personality types is realizing that although they may be part of an entertaining group exercise in the workplace and useful to help determine social inclination, you can’t rely on personality type systems to assess personality accurately any more than you can rely on politicians to spend your money wisely.

The truth about your personality type is that you don’t have a personality type. Your unique character is comprised of numerous personality traits, negative and positive.

You have three main choices to accurately assess character and determine genuine personality red-flag concerns: utilize a good psychologist, hire a security investigations firm to dig up information about the person’s true temperament, or hire an unconventional security investigations expert.

Effectiveness of Myers-Briggs Personality Assessment Questioned

Friday, February 26th, 2010

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is one of the most popular psychological personality assessment tools in existence today.

The basis of the test includes four main sets of attributes: Extraversion-Introversion; Sensing-Intuition; Thinking-Feeling; and Judgment-Perception. The theory is that you predominantly are or do one or the other: extraverted or introverted; sense or intuit; think or feel; and judge or perceive.

While I believe there may be some value in this sort of evaluation, particularly in helping to determine social inclination, for example, two things must be kept in mind:

  1. This is a self-assessment test, which means that it may not accurately reflect the true personality of the subject—especially when they are under pressure to match a desirable set of personality traits, as in a job interview, and they figure out the intent of the questions while taking the test.
  2. Many people aren’t on either extreme of the four personality areas outlined above, so the test may erroneously reflect their true personality even if they fill it out objectively—and they may get totally different results each time they take it since the test labels you as either-or and nothing in-between.

In order to get an accurate read on personality, I strongly suggest that you apply a wide range of evaluations, including some or all of the following: various psychological testing methods; feedback from multiple objective sources; and my favorite, because it’s impossible to fake the test results, handwriting analysis along with comprehensive astrology and numerology.
