    History

    Moore, a native of Lake Bluff, Illinois, frequently visited his father in Orlando following his parents’ divorce. The two often spent time together at Walt Disney World nearby. “It was a special, physical place, and it became an emotional space,” he told Filmmaker. “Obviously, I have a lot of father issues that I can’t separate from that place.” Later, their relationship deteriorated.

    He decided to pursue a career in film. After attending two other film schools, he graduated from Full Sail University in another Central Florida town, Winter Park, as the class valedictorian. He moved to Southern California and began working as a story editor, primarily doing uncredited rewrites.

    In Hollywood, he married and started a family. Much like his own father, he frequently took his own children to Disneyland. “It wasn’t until our first family trip together that this very visceral emotional landscape of my past, that I had by now nearly all but forgotten, hit me again like bullet.”

    On the family’s first trip to Walt Disney World, the emotions grew stronger. “It was like he was there as a ghost. We were going on the same rides I used to go on with him, but now we’re no longer talking anymore.”

    About

    Myers Briggs Personality Types are a group of 16 distinct classifications of personalities individuals could exhibit. The Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator has gained popularity in fandoms and has been used to identify characters to each of the personality types in the chart. Moreover, the personality types themselves have received their own iterations, symbols, and justifications from fans, often used by fans themselves in their blog’s description.

    Origin

    The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. These preferences were extrapolated by Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers from the theories proposed by world renowned psychologist Carl Jung. The indicator was invented during World War II in the 1940s with the belief a knowledge of personality preferences would help women who were entering the industrial workforce[1].

    Spread

    The earliest known instance of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator surfacing online is in a blog post published by Malcolm Gladwell on September, 2004 titled ‘Personality Plus’ at Gladwell.com which criticized the M.B.T.I. that it “has a large problem with consistency” and its founders “did not actually understand Jung at all”[2].

    The earliest known instance of characters being associated with the 16 personality types was found in a blog post published by user Peter on June 14, 2006 titled ‘Myers-Briggs typology: I’m an ENFP’ on blog.forret.com [3]. The blog post was supportive of the Myers Briggs Personality Indicator and comments that it is more or less a more credible form of astrology, and presented an image of the MBTI chart that showed female actresses that befit their given personality type.


    On April 6, 2013, the blog A Little Bit of Personality was made. The blog is currently active and is dedicated to the Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator, often posting summaries and explanations to how fictional characters are apt to belong to one personality type or another[4].


    The tag ‘mbti chart’ is popular on Tumblr with multiple charts for various fandoms resulting[6].

    Criticism

    Albeit popular, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator has been proven by professional statisticians and psychologists to be highly unreliable. The negative criticism against the MBTI has been sustained by evidence for over three decades[5]. Some researchers have interpreted the reliability of the test to be low. Studies have found that between 39% and 76% of those tested fall into different types upon retesting some weeks or years later[1]. A second criticism is that the MBTI mistakenly assumes that personality falls into mutually exclusive categories. You are either an extrovert or an introvert, but never a mix of the two. Yet most people fall somewhere in the middle. According to psychologist David Pittenger, caution is advised when using the MBTI for professional purposes. Furthermore, Pittenger believe that its success is due to “the beguiling nature of the horoscope-like summaries of personality and steady marketing.”[5]
