    I don't know about other people's experiences, but most quizzes out there for Myers Briggs are not only long but also known to be inaccurate. A while back I found a cool test on www.projectevolove.com that has a much more efficient MBTI testing system. Basically, you answer four questions and read descriptions that pop up. There is no extensive questionnaire and the test is far more accurate.

    The whole point of the short 4 question test is that the user can read the descriptions, rather than spend time on the questionnaire. People tend to answer questions incorrectly about themselves, but if they read a comprehensive description of themselves, they can very decisively say yes or no.

    People also cherry-pick, tending to collectively describe themselves either with what they are like in certain situations or what they would like to be. This is similar to and goes hand-in-hand with self-serving bias and self-esteem, an example of which is found here; regardless of traits' presence, people tend to associate with what they deem "good" or desirable traits, while avoiding "bad" or undesirable traits. This isn't said to imply that measuring personality is a farce, merely that it's tricky and still a process under development.
