Fitting People Into Neat Boxes

Fitting People Into Neat Boxes

Personality tests can be fun to take, but they can also be frustrating. They’re black and white. Most popular personality tests assume that people can be classified into distinct personality types. But, people don’t fit into neat boxes. Most people aren’t entirely introverted or entirely extroverted, for example.

But despite the fact that many of these tests rely on a flawed framework, they’re still widely used by employers of all sizes. It’s easy to see why: We want to be able to understand how people can work better together.

The Problem With The Most Popular Personality Test: Myers-Briggs

The Problem With The Most Popular Personality Test: Myers-Briggs

Myers-Briggs was developed in the 1940s, and there have been lots of advancements in the field of personality research since then. But the assessment, and ones like it, have staying power—especially in workplaces—because it feels like an easy way to match “types.”

However, the test has a low test/retest reliability, meaning if you take it again, you’re not necessarily going to get the same results as you did the first time. Other kinds of measures, like the Big 5 personality characteristics, are more stable across one’s lifespan and so are more reliable.

No Room For Naunce

No Room For Naunce

Many personality assessments end with your being labelled as a certain “type.” For these tests, you are put on one pole or the other of one of these dimensions.

But in fact, chances are, you’re probably in the middle of most of those core personality characteristics. And so it gives you a false sense of how extreme you are.

You might get told that you are an extrovert because you’ve had to become comfortable leading meetings, but in reality, you don’t like to talk to strangers at parties and actually prefer to work alone.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
