The whole notion that the MB test might have some validity, other than
being just a game. Obviously, the MB tries to be flattering in order to
gain adherents, but I will point out that it does a great job of that.
The most common result for extropians was ENTP, and the website
that interpreted the results gave as the classic example of ENTP is
Richard Feynman. Cooool! I wanna be like Feynman. I read his
books and identified with him more than any scientist ever.

So, MB is flattering, but really is very little more than a game, better
than a horoscope but really all it does is parrot back to you the same
information you give it, with not much actual predictive power. But
it is fun. I dont know why so many of us are xNTPs. spike
