Just letting you know I’m thinking about it before I get around to a better answer.
I’d say it’s reliable-ish, but a moderate level of reliability when the difference between being XXXP or XXXJ for “perceiving” and “judging” can be based on one question isn’t enough. Giving someone a category when they could have easily been a part of another category is immediately flawed.
However, it’s not a load of crock. As to whether it’s useful or not due to the fact that many people can vary on the later two “letters,” is up for debate (e.g., most people who are scores as introverted will likely consistently score as being introverted). Any survey of introspection can give a person a better perspective on their own self, but using it primarily to guide therapy or job placement is very shallow.
