"Do you prefer to focus on the outer world or on your own inner world?" This is a sample question from the popular Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which you've probably taken at some point in your school or work career. The test, which consists of 93 questions, is meant to classify those who take it as one of 16 distinct personality types. The folks over at Vox decided to take a closer look at the test that many believe to be an accurate indicator of personality to see just how much truth it actually holds. 

After all, we're living in a time when quizzes telling us what Disney Princess or what type of pizza we are are extremely popular, so what makes this test any better than those? If you've ever been curious about Myers-Briggs, this video provides insightful research and findings that'll have you worrying less about whether you're an ISTJ or an ESFJ.
