I've found out the people lie on their self-assessments when taken as part of a job interview. The last letter, either an J or a P is where they lie almost 100% of the time. The reason I know this is that I've seen the results. No one ever comes back as a "P" for perceiving. They all come back as "J" for judging. The reason is that they want to appear conscientious -- so that the employer will know they will show up for work on time.

It is important for those relying on type to be able to confirm the archetype through other methods. I can teach how to type people by the words they use, and the themes that they gravitate to talking about.
