The MBTI can be considered to be subsumed by the Big5/Five-Factor Model. McCrae and Costa examined this back in the late 1980’s. First of all, they showed that the types do not interact in a statistically meaningful way indicating that there isn’t a reason to interpret four type categories (e.g., ESTJ vs INFP). The categories (e.g., extraversion vs ...

To quote my answer to another question: The IPIP website provides measures of the Big 5. The following table from Furnham (1996) summarises some correlations across a few studies between the NEO Big 5 and the MBTI. You can find a listing of some of the multi-construct measures including Big 5 measures on the ipip website. References Furnham, A. (1996)...

The main question here is "is there any scientific research into objective differences between people with MBTI types?" I suppose a second question is "does this research actually SHOW differences?". This is one aspect of the debate about the validity of MBTI, which is covered in other questions (e.g., this one). There is not as much research as you might ...

There is research ongoing to correlate MBTI with quantitative, neurological data. Dario Nardi, for example, has found differences in EEG patterns between people of different types. Here is a PDF from him on the topic.

One study found a slight correlation between physical activity and extraversion (r = 0.23), neuroticism (r = −0.11) and conscientiousness (r = 0.20), though the results were relatively inconclusive. Another study found that physically active individuals ranked slightly higher on all scales except for neuroticism. A third study found correlations between all ...

All personality models are related in that they are carving up the same variance into different factors, and some of the factors will overlap. Extraversion is probably the most similar trait between the two models, but it's still quite different. As a personality psychologist, I would say yes, this is potentially an overestimation of their convergence. A ...

The wide majority of companies have different tests to measure different cognitive and personality features. First of all IQ (intelligence quotient) - is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. It helps filter applicants before even meeting them. (IQ is the highest predictor of educational and work ...
