So, Myers Briggs categories are more or less complete BS. Its subcomponents correlate heavily with standard Big Five scales, though, so lets take a look at those:
I: This is extroversion in the Big 5. You're low on it. This is likely not a surprise.
S: This is openness to experience. You're low on it. Conventionality is apparently your thing.
T: This is agreeableness. You're low on it. Depending on how low, this might be something to think about.
J: This is conscientiousness. You're high on it. This is probably a good thing.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myers-Brig ... r#Big_Five
As far as I can tell, MB is only used by institutions that buy into Jungian mysticism or think that a scale they have to pay to use is inherently superior to one that is available for free and widely employed in the scientific literature. I was kind of sad to see that someone from career services takes it seriously.
