Non Ethical Applications of MBTI
This indicator of psychological type should not be used for hiring.
The MBTI tool can just help one to understand the way of thinking of an individual, then to have a better communication each other.
Because your MBTI profile is not what you are, it just meausres your natural preference. But your experience and education have modified this type, so please don't choose a job applicant with this, it's a non ethical use of the method.
Read a book on MBTI and you will be able to read this caution formulated by Briggs and her daughter Briggs Myers themselves.
