Sometimes best-fit type is easily
arrived at because it is the same or close to your MBTI® results.
But when best-fit type is difficult to discover, it may be for
one or more of the following reasons:
- You may still be developing your preferences (this is especially
true of young people).
- You may have completed the MBTI questionnaire based on expectations
or preferences of your parents, family, or friends.
- You may have based your answers on what you feel is required
by your work or current situation rather than what you actually
- You may be worried that someone in authority will see the
results and disagree with your preferences.
- You may not be acting typically because of stress or a crisis.
- You may be reacting to cultural pressure to have certain preferences
(for example, planning ahead or being outgoing).
