John Farrier's Comments

When I was about 5, I asked my mom what hair was made of. She had been a chemist, so she knew in some detail--but not in a way that a 5-year old could understand. She told me that hair was made of protein.

Okay, so what's protein? My mom tried to explain and, at some point, used peanut butter as an example.

So for a couple of years, I believed that hair was made of peanut butter.

I found Jabba's presence in the revised version of Episode IV annoying. It presented Jabba as a wimp instead of the intimidating crime boss that he was in Episode VI.

Part of what's made the test so popular with the general public is that it's impossible to fail. While other psychological tests were designed to diagnose mental illness (or at least screen for it), the Myers-Briggs Test assumes that all 16 types represent shades of normal.

Apples and oranges--or at least apple and fruits. Other respected personality assessments, such as the 16PF and Rep Test, can't be failed. Myers-Briggs isn't designed to screen for mental disorders. The Myers-Briggs isn't some weird outlier in psychometrics.
