After taking a quick look, I thought the link below presented some very fascinating info about Myers-Briggs types, and personality disorders based on MBTI types...j/c, based on your own personal experiences, do you think that the information presented on the website link is accurate?

Myers Briggs 16 Personality Types

What personally fascinated me in particular on the referenced web page was the quoted, excerpted portion below. Would also be very interested to know if there are any parts of the listed web page that sounded also especially interesting, or possibly stood out as well, to others on the forum?

Those with avoidant personality disorder are much the opposite of [Narcissistic personality disorder]. Their extreme shyness, timidity, and sensitivity combined with their social isolation and feelings of inadequacy indicates some variation of IxFx.

I thought the Obsessive-Compulsive one was interesting. It turns out that control-tripping is an OCD phenomenon. Though I also think it's part of Narcisistic Personality Disorder.

I just wanted to tell you that my anti virus program blocked a link on that page and said it is a KNOWN malicious link. It was the link to the MB test.

Many thanks for the helpful FYI, and I apologize for you experiencing the malicious link contained on the page that I referenced (as I was not aware of that malicious link, when I provided the earlier website link). If I had been aware of the malicious link contained on the page when I first looked at it, I definitely would not have posted a link to the page.

That is some interesting stuff. BTW, here's the actual study and the results, which I presume are the original source behind the blogspot link:

An Empirical Investigation of Jung's Psychological Types and Personality Disorder Features

Although dunno that Jung ever quite intended his "archetypes" to be used that way, and also sounds like they refer to certain disorders a bit too "casually", like for example equating Narcissists with Avoidants, as simply a matter of relative 'grandiosity', which seems kinda odd when all the rest of those 2 sets of 'behaviors' is otherwise totally different!

Hey, no problem - I just wanted to give folks a heads' up. The actual page you linked to is pretty cool.

My MB personality is ENFJ - and the page you listed says that it is one of two personality types NOT associated with a personality disorder - WOOHOOOOO!!!
