Turns out I'm an introvert... (14.15)


Ben: What do you get a billionaire?

Mafee: God, I wish I had the stones to skip it. I hate these things.

Taylor: You love parties.

Mafee: Well, I recently took the Myers-Briggs personality test, and it turns out I'm an introvert.

Taylor: I'm not sure that test is rock-solid.

Mafee: I thought I like parties, but I don't. On a deeper level, it disturbs my equilibrium.

Ben: Is that why you woke up the day after the Christmas party in a yellow snow drift behind the strip joint? 

Mafee: Exactly.

The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is an introspective self-report questionnaire with the purpose of indicating differing psychological preferences in how people perceive the world around them and make decisions. The MBTI was constructed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. It is based on the conceptual theory proposed by Carl Jung, who had speculated that humans experience the world using four principal psychological functions – sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking – and that one of these four functions is dominant for a person most of the time. The MBTI was constructed for normal populations and emphasizes the value of naturally occurring differences. "The underlying assumption of the MBTI is that we all have specific preferences in the way we construe our experiences, and these preferences underlie our interests, needs, values, and motivation.”
