B
Explanation: B) Evidence is mixed about the MBTI's validity as a measure of personality, with most of the evidence suggesting it is not a good indicator. One problem is that the test forces a person into either one type or another (that is, you're either introverted or extraverted). There is no in-between, though people can be both extraverted and introverted to some degree.
