In this episode of From The Center, women’s empowerment experts Debra and Dr. Rob warn against boxing yourself in or limiting yourself (or others!) with personality tests and assessments. Debra also gives in to her fangirl side and admits her addiction to Game of Thrones and her inner turmoil over the final season.
Did you know…
Many people associate the popular Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) ‘personality test’ with the work of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology. But it was actually created by mom+daughter team Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs-Myers — neither of whom were trained or educated in psychology or psychiatry. The test has become a popular way to classify and label people but is no more accurate or authoritative than an Astrology horoscope!
“Every individual is an exception to the rule… this kind of classification is nothing but a childish parlour game.”
Carl Jung. Psychological Types. Routledge, 1921.
