Why the Myers-Briggs Test is Totally Meaningless.

“…you’ll notice that words like “selfish,” “lazy,” or “mean” don’t appear anywhere [on the Myers-Briggs].

A side note: I wish Vox lived up to its promise and focused more on quality than quantity, instead of peddling mindless click-bait masquerading as intelligent discourse.
