Umm, it's not really comparable to zodiac and other forms of pseudopsychology in the slightest. It may have issues with reliability and validity but I hardly think that's a fair comparison. The flaw in personal inventory test is more that people aren't quite honest with themselves. This is less the tests fault and more that of whomever is taking it.

Agreed. It's certainly not a perfect test, but it's hardly the same as describing personalities based on the stars.

At least that's how I think it works.
That actually makes a lot of sense. So basically, 10% I does not translate to 90% E. If that's the way it works than I can completely understand the basis behind it.

I have a strong distaste for horoscopes as a method of telling anything about anyone. I automatically discredit a person of saying anything worthwhile if they in any part of a conversation say this number:

"I really like her, but she's a Capricorn and i'm an Aries and you know how that can go..."

aggravating to a T

Oh right, I meant to clarify that translation. oops :/

So basically if you get low percentages, that means you have some sort of internal ambivalence?

I knew a girl who had to ask someone their sign before she would enter a conversation with them...if you were a sign that was supposed to be incompatible with hers, then she wouldn't talk with you.

Pretty much. I know the third and fourth letters have varied for me each time I've taken the test.

Usually I'm always more Feeling than Thinking. And on rare occasions more Introverted than Extroverted, but that could just be a mood thing, haha.

She should breathe more, get some of that tasty oxygen up to her brain.

Retarded, vague and repetitive questions. I was annoyed while doing it. What does that say about my personality?
