Can they legally make you take a personality test in the office?
They want to make us take the Myers-Briggs test. Do I have to take it?
Additional Details
Maybe I don't want to be categorized. Maybe I would prefer to have my work judged on my work rather than a personality test. Maybe I don't want to know the results because I don't want to put my mind in a box.

They can't force you to take it....cuz you don't have to take it unless you are willing to take it in exchange for the job.

It's not like they pulled you off of the street at random and forced you to take it.

But yes, they can make a condition of your willful employment with their company that you must complete a personality test.

Dr. KIA GCG says Suckit Whores™
No, but they also can fire you for no good reason, it's called "at will" employment, so i'd just be careful what waves you make. In this economy you don't want to be fired for being uncooperative, or insubordinate.

No, you don't have to. This doesn't so much categorize as much as demonstrate aptitude or some natural ability. While it is fair to judge people based on performance, it is also important to assess personality to gage your ability to work well with others among other things. Don't put too much emotion into the results as it is mostly a personality assessment that attempts to determine if you are an explosives expert, opera singer, or race car driver. All of us have natural ability or things we prefer to do.
Example, in our county dispatch center (police, fire, EMS) one of our best performers is 7 foot tall. Guess what? hates basketball. Loves Golf. Is personality is one that loves analysis, excitement, and we pick this up in the Myers-Briggs test.
It is really meant to help you.

"Maybe I don't want to be categorized."
" Maybe I would prefer to have my work judged on my work rather than a personality test."
" Maybe I don't want to know the results because I don't want to put my mind in a box."

who implied any of these issues would be brought up or become an issue due to a test.
the test may be a tool for management to determine the things you have stated and to deal with you accordingly.
the test results determine much more then your personality they are used to develop a plan to increase performance, retention, improve the workplace atmosphere, improve teamwork, determine prospects for advancement opportunities and leadership roles etcetera...etcetera...


and oh yeah........they can not force you to do anything BUT they can terminate you.
