Personality tests. Myers Briggs, Enneagram, which Harry Potter character are you. AND WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT YOU? We’ve all taken ’em. Some of us for our jobs, some of us just for fun. But is there any method behind the madness? Or is there just madness behind the method? In this Very Special Episode of Sound of Sanity, our heroes do a deep dive into the history of personality tests, in particular the MBTI and the much-disputed Enneagram. Is it science? Is it voodoo? Should Christians give themselves to it? Listen to find out. Featuring the Hemanologians and Chip and Lance.
