Personality testing can be a useful, although rather crude, tool for selecting new partners as well as medical school applicants (Features, January 22).

In my old practice we asked prospective new partners to complete an Eysenck Personality Inventory. The results were often interesting and we tended to select those doctors with high extroversion and low neurotism scores.

We were very wary of those with high-lie or high-psychotic scores!
