The current study explores the item structure of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). A factor analysis of responses of a large sample (n = 1291) yielded six salient factors, four resembling the four scales of the MBTI. Kuder-Richardson 20 coefficients are reported for the scales and factors. Pearson rs are also reported for the factor-scale relationships. All analyses yield only limited support for the item validity of the MBTI. Relevant issues involving the construction of the test are… Expand

TLDR
Positive empirical evidence supports the MBTI item validity, however, several measurement issues on item construction were raised to caution the future users. Expand

TLDR
Results of the studies indicate that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is an adequately reliable self-report inventory, measuring dimensions of personality which seem to be quite similar to those postulated by Carl Jung. Expand
