    So you don't see the inherent problem of labeling people with loaded, derogatory terms? Or worse, establishing a judgement system, ranging from good/positive to bad/negative?

    Feral children are always an important and pertinent measure/counterpoint for any psychological theory.
    Nice. Good luck getting them to anything other than "fit them in somewhere" though.

    I have added 60 new questions.

    The scores / tests results from several Myers Briggs forums have helped me put together a rubric for my theory. I was able to figure out what the threshold / highest score should be for someone to have these archetype pairs.

    I'm sure you'll find someone stupid enough to accept it.

    It's funny you should say that because it seems as if Shorter Typology has gone viral. This is incredible. Hundreds and Thousands of people are looking at the site everyday. Someone is taking it every minute. I'm on the front page of dozens and dozens of psychology google searches. I actually come above Wikipedia entries in google searches. Going on Myers Briggs forums and Typology Central really paid off. It's amazing how you can put something on the Internet and within a few years it snowballs and takes off and becomes this huge thing.

    yours is very general as i didn't even need to take it but just perused the questions to know which section would have the highest scores per individual.

    it's similar to calling the designer the intellect, the professional the status quo and the charmer a sociopath. now that one, the third section based on the questions most definitely indicate a sociopath/psychopath which is actually pretty common too just like the professional.

    what i forgot to note is that what is good about this test is the titles/label for instance, like charmer. this is because the questions really indicate that it's really identifying sociopathic or psychopathic traits or values, but 'charmer' is not an aversive but flattering term so given that the test takers are already aware that scoring highly in that section results in a flattering personality trait (superficially), they would be more apt to be honest or less apt to lie. whereas, if it clearly indicated what that personality profile really was, then there would be more who would not be as revealing or fudge their answers.

    Yeah I wanted to pick names for all the types that were appealing but also accurate. You are right in that it is a lot more broad and not as specific as the Myers Briggs. But it deals with the subconscious mind which Myers Briggs doesn't really seem to. I mean introversion and extroversion are things that people are very conscious of about themselves. They don't really have anything to do with the subconscious.
