Personality tests

A blog reader wrote to me on motivation and mentioned the Myers-Briggs psychometric test that highlights an individual's preferences. I'm doing qualitative not quantitative research but having BM data on my interviewees and perhaps linking it to their likelihood of engaging would be interesting, though I can’t know that my case study gatekeepers would have let me do that.

In my first case study, a quiet software developer was an introvert whereas the visionary consultant was an extrovert. Their differences would be complementary so how could the MB predict engagement?

If the viva examiner asks me what I’d have done different, I might suggest MB.
