    Being in the military requires being in large groups and a lot of social interaction- an Introvert could very well make a better soldier but an Extravert would have an easier time tolerating the military environment.

    Actually I think ESTJ would be the best type for the military.

    An INFP the worst type for the military? Not if it aligns with their values. Not if they use their ability to chameleon to other types to full advantage. The military is a structure that is founded with logical steps of progression and clearly defined "rules". And any NF potentially has the people skills necessary to flourish in this space.

    Hmmmm... I'm not entirely sure what skills would be necessary to do well in the military.
    Who would fare better in the military? The naturally cooperative or the naturally pragmatic?
    I would be inclined to say that even though the cooperative are better at following rules, the pragmatic would do better because they often are more capable of handling the tough life of the military.. the reason why I'd say that the ESTP is a better fit than the ESTJ. Relative to other types, the ESTJ is great for the military but just not as good as the ESTP..

    You know you left ISFP off of your list right?

    No, it's on there.
    ISFP is under 50/50.

    I think you underrate the toughness of ESTJ's. The toughness together with the greater ability to follow strict discipline makes ESTJ > ESTP for the military.

    I'm not sure who would be worse off by default, but my younger brother an EnTP joined the Army on an impulse and has woefully regretted the decision. He seems glad of certain things and it wasn't an entirely negative experience, but overall he regrets the choice given the overwhelming number of negatives it has cost him personally --as does his wife who is now ex-military.
