(–––– 5 ––––)Jung’s Psychological Types fascinated her and soon Isabel was infected by her mother’s enthusiasm. Over the next two decades, the pair became very interested in how people behave. Jung only identified eight personality types, but Isabel Briggs Myers eventually doubled that number. According to the MBTI, everybody can be described by four letters chosen out of a total of eight, for example ISFJ or ENTP. The various combinations of letters make up the sixteen personality types.Apparently the overwhelming majority of the 2.5 million Americans who take the MBTI assessment each year feel their results do fit their personalities. However, the Myers Briggs Foundation itself discourages the use of the test for hiring and firing. Instead, they see it mainly as a means of getting employees to think about how they interact with colleagues and work as a team. So, if you are asked to do a personality test at some point in the future, think carefully about the reason behind it. It may not be for the reason you thought! A Therefore, companies want to make sure their employees get on with each other.B He seemed like a nice young man, but his way of thinking was so strange to her that she turned to books for help.C On the other hand, according to one author, as many as 75% of test takers achieve a different personality type when tested for a second timeD And apparently the message was pretty clear – if you’re easily annoyed, don’t be a waitress.E This refers to qualities such as being friendly or unfriendly, or lazy or hard-working, which are present in all of us.F One of the most popular is called the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI. Reading total 10 WRITING Write an email to your friend telling him / her about something unusual that happened to you recently.Write 140–180 words. Include the following information: ã say what happened to youã explain where you were when it happenedã describe how you acted in this situation Writing total 10 Reading and Writing total 20 READING Read the article about personality tests. Five sentences have been removed. Which sentence ( A–F ) fits each gap ( 1–5 )? There is one extra sentence you do not need to use. The Myers-Biggs Type Indicator The business of personality tests is big and growing. As more people are looking for work, the competition for jobs gets greater and greater, and companies are looking to new ways to find the best person for the job. So the next time you apply for a job, you might be asked to take a personality test. How effective are these tests, though?Several years ago, Andrea was looking for a summer job to pay her way through college. She heard the tips were good in a restaurant in Chicago, and decided to apply. But before the interview, she had to fill out an online application including a psychometric test – a test which would reveal a lot about her personality. She explained that there was a whole section on ethics and how you’d react in a given situation, like dealing with a difficult customer, for example. (–––– 1 ––––)Andrea was surprised, but was faced with a similar test when she applied to work in a bookshop. Personality tests are now appearing in all types of industry. In a global recession, many firms want to be sure they are employing the most suitable person for the job. They cannot afford to pick the wrong one. Smaller profits also mean staff are working under more stress. (–––– 2 ––––) Disagreements are costly and inefficient.In the US alone, there are about 2,500 personality tests on the market. (–––– 3 ––––) Used by 89 of the top 100 companies, it has been translated into 24 languages. It has also been adopted by governments and military agencies around the world. ‘Myers-Briggs is the most successful psychometric test out there and deservedly so,’ says Rachel Robinson of the consultancy firm YSC in central London. ‘It has been a fantastic vehicle for people to think about themselves and how others are different.’Perhaps its attraction lies in its simplicity – according to the MBTI, we all match one of 16 character types. But it’s the fact that it is so straightforward that makes some people suspicious.Like many personality tests, MBTI is based on the work of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who, together with Sigmund Freud, helped lay the foundations of modern psychology. Jung developed the idea of opposed pairs of characteristics. (–––– 4 ––––) He suggested that in terms of each pair of qualities, we tend to be one or the other.The MBTI was invented thanks to an awkward relationship between a woman and her future son-in-law.
