Doctor Takes Personality Test | Are They Even Accurate?

688 487 Näkymät

Residents in my Discord have been asking me what my Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator is, and I didn’t know! So I sat down to take a personality test inspired by the MBTI philosophy and was… surprised by my results. There are several scientific problems with these tests which should prevent them from ever being used in making a major life decision. Some companies actually use these things to hire employees and structure their business, and that’s not something I can endorse. That being said, these tests are very fun and can be entertaining to take with friends or even provide you with some introspection if done with a professional. Let me know what personality type you are down in the comments!
I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

  • My problem with these tests is that it's too easy for everyone to get INTJ and say they're rArE aNd SpEcIaL. Also, yeah, I had an instructor in grad school try to tell me that introverts weren't as cut out for our field (speech-language pathology) as extroverts. Anyway, I pretty consistently get ISTP-A on these and I guess? It's all delicious speculation, isn't it?

  • I agree with you that these tests are fallible and should not be used for major decisions (especially not in job applications--yes, I've seen that before). However, I've taken the MBTI multiple times, at random points over the last 15 years, and I always get INFP, even when I think I've changed substantially in my relative views and practices. It's maybe the one of the few consistent things about me, I'm sure. Although, I am Borderline, and I've never taken the test when I'm in one of my... less attractive moods with more erratic emotions and hard black and white thinking. So I wonder how that would affect my results. If I ever have the peace of mind to actually take one in those moments, it would sure be interesting. (It won't happen though. Rational thinking is out the window in those moments, and the last thing I'd care about is a test.) Still, it would be interesting to see how things like Bipolar, Borderline and other mood disorders could affect personality tests.

  • Why is it that my entire immediate family and some of my extended family drink coffee every night before sleeping and we all sleep fine? I used to think coffee was actually a night time drink as a child because I saw all the adults around me drink coffee only at night. Did I inherit some sort of caffeine tolerance?

  • The 5 Factor model regarding personality is more accurate and used by psychologists like Dr. Todd Grande. On the MBTI I always came out as an INFJ with INFP being a close 2nd. It was pretty accurate in my case, but I think the MBTI was not meant to pigeon-hole a personality, but rather to determine your cognitive functioning stack. I think its people who see it as a black and white test rather than a great area. Not all people of the same personality type are the same. Problem with these personality tests is, people don't evaluate them with discrimination or critical thinking.

  • I don't know mate me and my friend took the test multiple times and we both got INTJ which personality describes me perfectly. You say there are a lots proofs disproving the accuracy of MBTI but it doesn't make any sense by that logic it has to be wrong on us too yet it's not. I think the reson for this outcome is because ppl don't know themselves as much as they think they are.

  • Thank you! I was recently told by my counselor to take the 16 personality test to help me "figure" out who I am. I got "Virtuoso" Turbulent and it kinda fits but not really. I definitely have some characteristics but not all of them. I looked up the others and defender works better for who I feel drawn to being. I feel if you looked more into the different "personalities" in this suggested theory, you would find that you're more a combination of many as so many people truly are combinations instead of 1 of 16.

  • Ok took the same test after watching this and was shocked that it was 98% accurate. When I first saw entertainer, I thought no way but it pegged me in every which way, even my job. Interesting. I think some people can get caught up in the questions and not answer them truthfully. I don’t consider myself an entertainer but after seeing the explanations then they made sense. I’m not sure if this is a reliable way for employers to weed through applicants because they could be denying a person a great opportunity that they may/could grow into and become very successful.

  • Ohh mi amor..... You have to take the actual test from someone who is actually trained in taking this test. The online version is nothing compared to the actual test. I should know, I took it twice while I was studying mental health counseling and got the same result twice. It's nothing like the test you took online. Please take the time to take the test from an actual mental health professional who is certified to take the test. And although I agree that personality tests such as the Myers Briggs are not the end all be all in determining who you love, career, etc, it is a great way to help individuals get some better insight not only how they relate to themselves but also to others.

  • said "personality testing" and...since you're a physician, I was expecting Big Five or at least the MMPI-2. lol Was I ever disappointed when I realized it was Myers-Briggs. Ugh! ....and I am sooooo with you on that nap after exams: like a 16 hour nap and, if it was December, coming down with a cold a day or so later. lol Please tell the residents in your Discord group they could benefit from using some better personality assessments, such as those used clinically maybe? lol I recommend they begin with the Narcissistic Personality Inventory followed by the Psychopathic Personality Inventory (and not the PCL-R, which is better for Factor 2 psychopathy rather than Factor 1 psychopathy that tends to be found in CEOs, surgeons, attorneys, police officers, etc.). I literally SUCKED AIR IN when I first heard you say, "Maybe my zodiac Scorpio...." and then burst out laughing when you said, "Just kidding." Wow, you almost had me there for a second! lol The horror. lol EDIT: Also, that test basicaly called you a narcissist, but in such a way as to not cause an overt narcissistic injury. lol

  • You are spot on about it being an _indicator_ and it uses that in its name. All you results were pretty central on the scale 60/40. It is based on sampling theory so it will always be an estimation not an absolute, it is sociological not physics. The attributes you read out are the characteristics of the extreme of the scale. You got a bit offended by the inflexible thing. I'd argue you are when it comes to core values and you've shown a no compromise approach to B.S. You are inflexible about integrity and that is one of the things I like about your videos. It is possible to be inflexible in core values so as not to compromise integrity but be flexible to outcomes in the face of evidence, especially if that core value is respect for evidence. That is how I see that scale anyway.

I hate being a teacher or anything in the that field. Little did I know I would end up being a teacher in China. (I hate it) the kids are great but I hate the job.

  • Maybe you should do a video on the Big 5 personality test. I believe it's a bit more accurate given that the personality traits are more of a spectrum with each trait independent from the other. I believe it can be used to understand why people react to the same situation differently. But yah, these tests are fun, but probably shouldn't be used in recruitment and the fields of medicine. Just an idea

  • I used to be really into typology (MBTI and Socionics) - until I realized how cultish the typology online community can be, how people become religious about these personality types in search of the perfect partner. I decided that it's a lot of BS. People are more complicated. The only thing that is kind of clear is extroversion and introversion. I think especially during the pandemic now you can tell from who is all chill about staying at home, playing videogames, watching TV, reading and here and there meeting just one friend or one relative - and those who are depressed and frustrated because they can't go to parties, hang out with bigger groups of people. The social distancing would probably work better if people were all introverted. xD

  • MBTI types give one the general idea of their personality. This test is not made for detailed analysis of one's personality. Although ultimately every personality test or IQ tests would lack credibility to some degree because 1) Personality or IQ is not a well understood and defined concept. 2) The tests rely on languages which are faulty hence questions sometimes can be hard to understand or interpreted in a different way. 3) Human mind is too complicated to put into categories. Although Neo ipip / The big five Personality test gives one way more detailed idea of their personality compared to other tests. Maybe you can try it out :3
