Women in Science M yers status as a scientist can, perhaps, be questioned she had no advanced degree and during her working years, her test was not submitted to rigorous scientific testingbut the MBTI is developed on research and experimental principles as well as being oft en used in psychology, counseling, education, and business practices as an empirical metric of personal type and aptitude. Regardless of the scientific rigor of the test itself, Myers' s position as a woman doing empirical research creates a need to unders tand how women were positioned in empirical fields during the twentieth century.
