Replying to LO22518 --

In my own amateur use of personality tests I have found them to be a
useful tool for personal growth. I've been able to learn a great deal
from the "type" I test as, and simply how I am inclined to answer the
questions on the test. I do think that there is value to these tests, my
concern is more with taking test results and applying them to job
placement. I think that if used properly these tools can be of great
value, but I'm not sure if I would be comfortable if someone decided that
I should be in R & D because I'm an "inventor", or told me that I should
not be in a management position because I did not have the necessary
personality traits.

I'd be interested to learn more about how you've applied these tests, they
may prove to be very useful in an informal study I may be doing.
