Capraro, Robert M.; Capraro, Mary Margaret – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Submitted the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) to a descriptive reliability generalization analysis to characterize the variability of measurement error in MBTI scores across administrations. In general the MBTI and its scales yielded scores with strong internal consistency and test-retest reliability estimates. (SLD)

Johnson, William L.; Johnson, Annabel M.; Murphy, Stanley D.; Weiss, Ardith; Zimmerman, Kurt J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
This study examined the factor structure of Form G of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (K. Briggs and I. Myers, 1987). A third-order component analysis of a sample of 486 college students yielded three higher-order components. These findings contribute to the literature pertaining to the generalized structure of the instrument. (SLD)

Tzeng, Oliver C. S.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
Measurement properties of two response formats (bipolar and unipolar ratings) in personality assessment were compared using data from 135 college students taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Factorial validity and construct validity of the MBTI were supported. Reasons why the bipolar method is preferable are discussed. (SLD)

Taggart, William M.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
Relationships among the scales of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and the Human Information Processing Survey revealed in a study by S. C. Shiflett (1989) were reinvestigated in a study involving 554 college students (270 males and 284 females). One significant gender difference among the correlations was found. (SLD)

Johnson, Donald A.; Saunders, David R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1990
Confirmatory factor analysis using the LISREL computer program was performed on test scores from 500 workshop participants (adults) taking the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator--Expanded Analysis. Results, cross-validated with 500 other scores, support 4 factors as well-defined constructs. Improvements are suggested for subscale reliability. (SLD)

Salter, Daniel W.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
A test-retest study of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator with 99 graduate students over 20 months yields findings consistent with previous studies, but an examination of type dynamics using log-linear analyses indicates that dominant thinking and dominant sensing do not retest as well as dominant intuition and feeling.

Hartman, Steve E.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
Results for 75 medical students and 248 undergraduates suggest that the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator appears to sample only 3 bipolar personality dimensions rather than the 4 that the use of "type tables" implies. One of these dimensions shares substantial variance with the cognitive model of hemispheric dominance. (SLD)

Harvey, Robert J.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
Confirmatory factor analyses of 94 items on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator were performed for 1,091 adults. Results provided qualified support for the four-factor model. Exploratory factor analyses were also performed to identify areas in which model fit could be improved; these analyses strongly supported the four-factor analysis. (SLD)

Thompson, Bruce; Borrelo, Gloria M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
The structure and item performance of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator was investigated using data from 39 college students. Factor analysis was applied to the items, factor adequacy and invariance coefficients were computed, and the appropriateness of the recommended item weights was examined. Results strongly supported the instrument's construct…

Sipps, Gary J.; Alexander, Ralph A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
The construct validity of extraversion-introversion was explored, as measured by the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Eysenck Personality Inventory. Findings supported the complexity of extraversion-introversion. Two MBTI scales, Extraversion Introversion and Judging Perceiving, were factorially valid measures of impulsivity…

Sipps, Gary J.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
The current study explores the item structure of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). A factor analysis of responses of a large sample yielded six salient factors, four resembling the four scales of the MBTI. (Author/LMO)

Schurr, Terry K.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
The effects of different instructors and student Myers-Briggs Type Inventory personality characteristics on the accuracy of predicting 1041 introductory English composition grades from a single regression equation were investigated. Results suggested that grades were inflated in classes with high means and deflated in classes with low means.…

Schurr, K. Terry; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1989
Relationships among National Teacher Examinations (NTE) Communication Skills and General Knowledge test scores, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator characteristics, self-reported academic problems, and 14 skill self-ratings were examined for 161 college teaching majors. After several other variables were controlled, personality variables accounted for a…

Beyler, Jane; Schmeck, Ronald Ray – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
The construct validity of the holistic-analytic continuum in information processing strategies was generally supported by an evaluation of the following instruments: (1) the Inventory of Learning Processes; (2) the Human Information Processing Survey; (3) the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator; and (4) the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire. Subjects were…

Levy, Nissim; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1972
Paper examines type distributions of Negro college students, compares these with findings of earlier studies of white college students, and provides evidence on the stability of personality-type as measured by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. (Authors)
