The community I entered wanted the following:
However, they administered the Myers Briggs and then wouldn’t show ME the results. That caused me some anxiety, but since they had accepted me, I figured it couldn’t be that bad… and was it my imagination, or was I being treated differently then the other postulants (and later, novices)? I felt like I was being excluded from things. There would be a picnic or some sort of outing for the young sisters, but I was “selected” to stay behind and take someone else’s place so that they could go. It wasn’t every single time, but it did seem to me that it was more often than not, while some sisters were always included in the outings.
YEARS later, at a teacher inservice, we were given a Myers Briggs and given the results immediately. I was on the far fringes of INTJ. The good sisters, in their way of thinking, decided that I would rather be left out than included, because I am from the rare type that likes to be alone and makes few friends. However, the “J” part caused me to perceive this as an injustice to me. So IMHO, the Myers Briggs is only worth taking if it is going to be used by people who actually know what they are doing.
My advice to you - ask a lot of questions. You want to know which tests, but you also know how they will be used. The hard part will be to do this without making it seem (to the sisters) like you are questioning their methods, 2nd guessing them, or worried that something will show up in the tests that you would rather not disclose. As they say, “You can run, but you can’t hide.” This is true when applied to your formation, because you can’t run away from yourself. You will have to face yourself, as you get to know who you really are, then work on forming that person into the beautiful bride of Christ you are called to be. You may find that things you struggle with in the world will not be the same things you struggle with in community.
