The paper discusses the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Rorschach assessment tests that were both created to assist people in understanding the mental perceptions of each other through a focus on personality. The paper shows how the Myers-Briggs tool is a much more effective test than the Rorschach because it is reliable and leaves little room for bias on the part of the evaluator.
From the Paper:"The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality assessment focuses on Jung's concept of personality types and a personality inventory (Geyer, 2006, sec. 1-3). The initial work on the MBTI began in the 1940s and has been revised on a constant basis since that time. It is considered reliable because of the test-retest method of reliability that has demonstrated a 75% repeat result from participants (Geyer, 2006, sec. 1-3). Therefore, the test is utilized by many businesses and organizations as a clear assessment tool for personality indicators of employees."
