Here’s Which Myers-Briggs Type You’re Most Likely To Mistype As

Thanks so much for all of your feedback on the previous post! I’ll be delving into in-depth explorations of each letter set in my next few posts, perhaps doing one a week if all goes well. School’s starting up again so I’ll be pretty busy, but hopefully I’ll be able to balance things. I’ve also got some more lists in mind, along with some INFP things up my sleeve, so I shouldn’t be running out of ideas any time soon. =D As I work on my Extroversion vs. Introversion post, though, here’s an interesting thing I found a few days ago.
