test-retest reliability across all four dichotomies, only 65% ( 4 weeks)
split-half indicates "acceptable" levels of reliability Bias Issues scientifically customized and validated for other languages and cultures
surveyed in 30 countries-- all four type preferences appear in all 30 countries
gender issues have been decreased by using DIF analysis
Patterns amoung sexes (across cultures): "T" is 10-25% higher for males than females
