With regard to using personality type tests, i think they're fun, i have
learned a lot from them and - basic parardox of learning -learning in
order to control inhibits learning (Aryris). So applying a test in order
to control a person or people: that is the problem with tests. It is like
square wheels: they'll last longer when you do not use them.

By the way, why are so many of these tests in magazines for women?

Take care,
