A note about the Myers-Briggs
It has no scientific validity, support or respect.

And even the site of the Myers-Briggs business:
http://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-personality-type/mbti-basics/reliability-and-validity.htm
We will talk about this is class, but notice that the commercial website (.org is something you purchase) does not reference any scientific studies, journal articles, academic institutions in support of their claims - you have to buy the manual to see if they do there.

"It's 2014. Thousands of professional psychologists have evaluated the century-old Myers-Briggs, found it to be inaccurate and arbitrary, and devised better systems for evaluating personality.

In a review of the book,
What's Wrong with the Rorschach?
Zelan writes:
"The Epilogue suggests their ultimate befuddlement: How could or does the Rorschach Test maintain its endurance and clinical popularity? As clinicians persist in using the test despite the depredations of managed care and the criticisms of Wood, et al. and their ilk, there must be some other reason beyond fad, mendacity, or self-serving economic motivation. Here the authors appear clueless."

Track the source of this quote frompage 85 of your text:
"Evidence exists to support the predictive validity of some Rorschach scires with respect to thought disturbance, psychotherapy prognosis, and dependency" (Lilienfield, Wood & Garb, 2000)
Tell me if this is an accurate reflection of what the source says.
TAT:
Rorschach
Analogue tests: meant to reflect real-life in the lab.
CT scan
MRI
fMRI
PET scan
