How to activate your brain's superpowers.

Is the problem with MBTI really that it's unreliable, or that people are misusing it? I've taken versions of it over the last 20 years and came out as INTJ on every single one. And yes, they are continuums, and that is made clear in the class, and most people are pretty close to the middle. I'm extremely I, and have been on every test. In N/S spectrum, I'm almost exactly in the middle.
It doesn't measure everything, of course; one notable lack is trust/cynicism. However, since it was meant to be an aid with employment, maybe that spectrum wasn't deemed critical.
The first version I took of this in college specified in bold print more than once that you're meant to answer the questions according to your normal preferences, how you act *most* of the time. If people misuse that, it's not the fault of the test.
