If this is true, kind of funny that the best in school all seem to be SJ's. So I guess schools are biased towards SJ's and standardized tests are biased towards NP's. Who's smarter? I guess we'll never know. We might as well start talking about religion.
    I don't find that surprising. There's that line about A students working for C students and I don't think it's purely a myth. My entire education has been memorization-based, save for a few rare courses (plus obviously math and philosophy, the unmemorizables). Of course, SJs are capable of understanding things too, but with high Si and tests that rely on memory work, I don't think there's much incentive to deeply understand unless they're interested in that. So yeah, I'm not surprised that the best Si users do well on tests of Si use (which is, IMO, testing in schools (up to university where I am now)). YMMV depending on where you went to school, what you studied, etc. Perhaps I've just had bad luck in this regard.

    I agree. In my field you see a lot of SJ higher ups too. I guess there are just too many factors to go into intelligence. (Which is why it's like talking about religion in typo c language.)



    (New topic.) At least IQ score vs. MBTI type is somewhat easily measured. A lot of people are saying we can't measure intelligence with an IQ test. It's obvious that you can't measure everything in a test, but I still think IQ score has some validity. It may not be a one hundred percent valid way of testing someone's intelligence, but I think it certainly says something about how a person thinks. (Even if it means some poor NP sap wrote the IQ test to try to show that NP's can be more intelligent than SJ's in some ways. . Kidding!)

    I agree with that, but to put it simply, intelligence could simply be based on one's skill with their dominant function? We usually only talk (on this forum) about relative strength of an individual's functions to determine their type, but inter-person (rather than intra-) comparisons could be carried out similarly. Well, maybe not, but they could be, in theory! Then it would account for all various types of intelligence. Because otherwise, as you said, no one metric can measure everything.

    Edit: Then again, you have to wonder how intelligent a person is if they just have unchecked dominant and a useless auxiliary. But anyway...

    If that was true entps geniuses would go raving mad whenever they'd do anything new and stimulating, though it may explain alot of enfjs' scandalous behavior.

    Yeah, I agree, it doesn't work. I retract my previous post.

    Consider the relationship between somatotypes and iq, and then the relationship between somatotypes and mbti.



    There is a general relationship between iq and somatotype. Closest to the top of the chart (endomorphic types) are the lower iq ranges (below 50th percentile). The middle of the chart represents the 100 iq range, the lower left is above average iq, and the lower right the superior-genius range.

    I remember that somatotype guy.. He typed me INTP. Where did he go anyways? I didn't finish arguing with him.

    Anyhow, even if I was, I'm nowhere near "super-genius" level (not being self-effacing or anything.. just saying).

    So let's get this straight....

    ESxx types are dumb.
    ENxxs, most INPs & ISFJs & ISTPs are average.
    INFJs, ISFPs & some ISFJs & NFPs are above average.
    IxTJs & some ISTPs & NTPs are super geniuses.




    And as an ectomorph, this would make me a super genius INTJ or something

    lol.

    I guess in my case we just have to do a little math to solve the equation.

    ESFP+ Ectomorph divided by 2= above average IQ?

    Maybe? if you took those numbers - I don't know what they mean anyway, waist size in cm? - such as 621 and divide it by the square root of pi to derive your iq.
