30 years later I'm still an INTJ. I've taken the test several times and it always comes out the same.
The J has floated over the years - especially if I'm talking to a female.

heh heh heh - I never even heard of Myers-Briggs until two years into ER on a temp. contract engineering job(1995). Now I embrace my INTJ like E.O. Wilson's ants - it's tribal.

"Creative Thinking" in the '80s, "Performance Excellence" and the ubiquitous Analytical/Driver/Expressive/Amiable testing in the '90s, M-B in the '00s: My megacorp did all these and many more - slavishly. They ignored all the results and simply went on to the next fad as if it would somehow be better or more useful than the last. The only thing the whole process created was a lot of (even more) cynical w*rker bees in our drab cubicles. YMMV

Same at my MegaCorp. CEO reads an airplane book and talks to head of HR who, of course, has gone to a seminar. Head of HR then contacts a consultant who then comes in and assesses everybody. We then sit in a room talking about where we came out. Then back to work. A year or two later, rinse and repeat. Always thought the key was to become one of those consultants $$$$$$.

Be careful what you wish for. Are you sure you want to live out of a suitcase and spend your days talking to cynical nutjobs?
