Use of Myers-Briggs Type Inventory for Possible Past-Life Matches
Myers-Briggs-Based Personality Tests
Several Myers-Briggs personality tests have been developed by various independent companies. The Reincarnation Experiment suggests researchers working on a past-life case (for a subject or for oneself) may want to use any one of many that can be taken and scored on line as part of your case evaluation. (Note: An MBTI score is useful only with other areas of evidence. Do not submit just MBTI scores alone.)
If your personal reincarnation case is being evaluated by the Reincarnation Experiment, please go to one of two Internet links, one in the next paragraph and the second farther below. Answer the questions as honestly as you can, preferably as you would have answered before you became aware of a possible past-life connection. Copy and paste the on-line results and send them to this email. (If feasible, we will then compare your scores to a similar test done on the alleged past-life personality by an independent person acting as a surrogate.)
Option 1, go to this link, click on the Personality Test link in the Writer box, take the test and get the results as directed, highlight the results and copy them, and then email the results an directed above. Option 2, please follow the link shown below, complete the test, copy the results and paste them in a message sent to this email.
