Myers-Briggs and the theurgy of HR

23-Aug-2019

"Has this team done the MBTI test yet?", the lady from HR asked.

After the meeting, I asked if HR has some other tests in their toolbox. Perhaps one based more firmly on science? Somewhat offended she answered that she did not understand what I ment since "MBTI is based on the ideas of Jung".

For a second I considered pointing out the difference between science and someones ideas but realised it was unlikely to end well.
