Doug Merchant said "Don't know about Myers Briggs, however, when I was a
Branch Manager I was amused to discover that 6 of my 7 National Account
Managers were Leo's :-)"

I think this is a great response. I've felt for some time that Myers
Briggs et al. are a bit like horoscopes and that people often seem to use
the results to justify how they are. And sometimes to justify not
changing - "...that's just the way I am..." etc. Also it didn't take long
for someone to "offer" to provide their expertise in this area for a fee
did it? Isn't that what it's really about? But I'm probably just

By the way Doug I'm a Leo too.



(P.S. It's ages since I felt like contributing to this list - thanks Doug
I couldn't resist.)
