What are INTJs worst
Is It Appropriate to Use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator as a Selling Point in a Personal Statement?
As I am applying for a position in an engineering research position, I believe the above description will sell me well. In my personal statement, is "promoting" my specific personality a good or a bad thing? I am concerned that there is too much sanke oil and too little substance.
You are right to be concerned.
Unless you are certain that the potential target employer specifically appreciates such test results, you should not include your Myers-Briggs results in a personal statement, cover letter, or resume.
As you hinted at, many will assume that it is low in substance at best and snake oil at worst.
As a hiring manager, it would be negative for me that you seem to believe in the importance of such personality tests. Other hiring managers may see it differently, but why bother to risk this result?
Likewise, don't include your zodiac sign, IQ, results of a recent "love quiz," number of pushups, etc.
Find other ways to express your talent in your cover letter, résumé, and most importantly, in your interviews. Describe yourself using the terms that you think are applicable (including the terms your MBTI test scores suggest, if you wish). Just be ready to support your claims in other ways.
