Criticisms of MBTI
Article : The Nature of Preference, Neil Fleming
Article: I'm Different; Not Dumb: Modes Of Presentation (V.A.R.K) In The Tertiary Classroom, Neil Fleming. A questionnaire developed and used at Lincoln University identifies the preferences of students for particular modes of information presentation. Used with students, it can provide a focus for developing strategies that are tailored for individuals. In so doing it helps overcome the predisposition of many educators to treat all students in a similar way. Used with teachers, the questionnaire can motivate them to move from their preferred mode(s) to using others. In so doing, they reach more students because of the better match between teacher and learner styles. Some case studies of students and teachers, empowered by the questionnaire, are provided.
VARK began in 1987. The publication that launched VARK was Not Another Inventory, Rather A Catalyst For Reflection, Neil Fleming And Colleen Mills, Lincoln University.
