    Default Salary and Type

    I was looking at some statistics here about mbti types and salary:
    Type Statistics


    Household Income
    ENTJ - $84,434
    ESTJ - $76,238
    ESFJ - $74,882
    INTJ - $72,043
    ENFJ - $71,060
    ISTJ - $71,020
    ESTP - $69,323
    ISTP - $67,349
    ENFP - $66,210
    INTP - $64,872
    INFJ - $64,372
    ISFP - $64,166
    ISFJ - $63,870
    ESFP - $63,281
    ENTP - $62,960
    INFP - $61,565


    Apparently T's outperform F's given all the other letters are same and J's outperform p's.

    Only in ENTP and ESFP case the I's perform better than the E's.

    Amazing how ENTJ are so above everybody else. lol(Yes, I know self aggrandizing)


    But yea what is surprising is the ENTP. How you explain that?

    Education Level (1 did not graduate, to 6 PhD or equivalent)
    ENTJ - 4.12
    INTJ - 3.93
    ESTJ - 3.83
    ISTJ - 3.78
    ESTP - 3.73

    ENTJ owns at life

    Household Income
    ENTJ - $84,434
    ESTJ - $76,238
    ESFJ - $74,882
    INTJ - $72,043
    ENFJ - $71,060
    ISTJ - $71,020

    INTP - $64,872
    INFJ - $64,372
    ISFP - $64,166
    ISFJ - $63,870
    ESFP - $63,281
    ENTP - $62,960
    INFP - $61,565
    once again, empiracle proof that the ENTJ owns at life.


    after looking at these two charts ^

    if you are unsure of being ENTJ or ENTJ: how succesful are you?
    if you are unsure of being ENFP or ENTP: how succesful are you?

    interestingly enough, its the Te ones that win...not necissarily the F or T.

    Married
    INTJ - 44%
    ISTP - 43%
    ENFJ - 40%
    the INTJ and ISTP are more frequently married than the ENFJ?


    Males Females
    Type 9 - 746 Type 9 - 2294
    Type 4 - 678 Type 4 - 1806
    Type 5 - 615 Type 2 - 1773
    Type 7 - 468 Type 7 - 1461
    Type 1 - 424 Type 5 - 1175
    Type 2 - 413 Type 6 - 1102
    Type 8 - 356 Type 1 - 1024
    Type 6 - 308 Type 8 - 853
    Type 3 - 298 Type 3 - 682
    PROOF, that people are on average, lazy.

    I wouldn't depend on those stats.... they don't even begin to reflect the overall averages;

    I suppose the low INFP figure is lowest because they so often do charity or underpaid work for a "good cause"

    As far as explaining the ENTP thing my hunch would be that this is based on reported income and that entps probably excel at hiding it. My understanding is that many are self employed also and as those of us who are self employed know there are many ways to hide/ write off a dollar.

    I'm wondering how they arrived these numbers...
    That's a whole lot of money... Who are these people? It's terribly expensive where I live, yet, I know no one who makes that much (no, not even couples).

    Where do you live, I thought the figures were to low.

    I know people who make as twice as much, not even to mention family income.

    I am thinking we have some ENTJ out there that aren't making any money

    Well no it wouldn't because its like only 30% of the people have internet access.

    So basically, it would be people with higher degree of education and disposable income.

    As indicated by the level of education being a 3 or above for most groups.

    The result are only to be used to spot trends not to pin point any specific figures.

    Like ENTP might be hiding dough.

    The salary you earn is more about WHO you are than WHAT you are.

    Types got nothing little influence on it, in my opinion. :P
