    Facts
In summary, the individual is asking about balancing their MBTI functions and where they can go to get tested to see their current levels. They ask about what type of professional they should see for this, but it is mentioned that a real psychologist would likely refuse due to it going against the purpose of the testing. The purpose of the testing is not to achieve a 100% balance in all types, as this could indicate psychopathy.

Hi again all. I asked these questions because I want to balance out all my mbti functions making them all 100% in all areas of the mind/brain or as best as each function will get if that's possible as part of my brain exercise regimen. How can I do this? Where can I go to get tested to see my current mbti function levels? What type of certain professional do I need to see for this? Or what type of phycologist? I am a ISTJ

@timeuser84 I think any real psychologist would refuse you for this purpose due to it being against what the reasoning for the testing is. The point is NOT to be the same on all types. If you were 100% the same on all types, you may be a psychopath.

Thread closed.
