Myers-Briggs is a Crock” – review of “Idiot Brain,” by neuroscientist Dean Burnett.  Published by the Wall Street Journal on 8-5-16.  Includes interesting info, such as, “surprisingly, the brains of intelligent people use less power” and updates, from the perspective of neuroscience, on controversies about intelligence testing, personality research and how many books about neuroscience “cherry-pick a single hypothesis about the function of a brain area in order to fit a particular human-interest story.”  The review is informative, and the book sounds like an excellent update about neuropsychological issues with implications for mental health practice.
