Dubious Assessments

Anatomicaly Detailed Dolls
Anatomically-detailed dolls (ADD), or anatomically correct dolls as they are also known, are used in therapy, sexual abuse cases, courtroom testimony and sex education. They are like regular dolls except for the addition of anatomically correct private areas.
Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator
MBTI is a personality assessment developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katherine Cook Briggs. Their aim was to create a tool to indicate, validate, and put to practical use C.G. Jung's work on psychological types. It is quite easy to find websites that for a small fee will let you take an assessment similar to MBTI online.
The Rorschach Inkblot Test
The Rorschach Inkblot Test consists of 10 cards, each containing symmetrical inkblots, some in color and some in black and white. Developed by psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach in 1921 as a tool for personality assessment, it is still used today by clinical psychologists in any number of settings including schools, courts and clinics.
