    BS. Meyers-Briggs is a shortcut for lazy managers to pigeonhole people, a tool for separating workers out for management or drone tracking based on pseudo-scientific gobbledegook. I know an ardent fan of this crap who excuses her continually interrupting people mid-sentence by claiming it’s due to her being on the Myers-Briggs “extrovert” spectrum, which is quite naturally countered by pointing out science is no excuse for bad manners and downright rudeness. Meyers-Briggs THIS!
