OKA workbook“The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the way individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment.”
– Mary H. McCaulley, co- author of the MBTI® Manual: a Guide to the Development and Use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

With more then 1.5 million MBTI® assessments taken each year, it is the most widely used personality type questionnaire used in the world.  These are the official assessments only. It is possible with a high degree of accuracy to speed read individuals without using the questionnaire itself.  This depends on the competency of the reader, and how clear the preferences are of the individual being read is.
