Big Five is generally used in scientific experiments to measure personality traits because it
predicts behavior more accurately and it has higher reliability: you can take the test at different times and you’ll receive similar results. The Myers Briggs test is not supported by the scientific community, as people receive different results each time they take the test.
Research has consistently shown that the personality types provided by Myer Briggs do not correspond to the differences in behavior.
