Replying to LO7639 --

Carol Sager states that personality types, by definition, do not change.
While that is true, good type development and the process of individuation
(a Jungian term) allows for someone to "learn" the behaviors of their
non-preferences, and eventually even appreciate them. The MBTI measures
only one's self perceptions of their preferences - it has nothing to do
with behaviors. Just wanted to add this to the thread since the MBTI is
sometimes misunderstood.
