      Yes, it is excellent in demonstrating that De Gustibus is wrong in very unambiguous ways. Unfortunately, Myers-Briggs is not taken seriously by anyone in the psychology profession, but I have little doubt that these results would hold if tested using evolutionary criteria. I think Caplan probably chose Myers-Briggs because it’s something there is a lot of data on because it’s the personality test you always use if you are not a psychologist.
