    As far as correlation between IQ and MBTI type, my research concludes:
    N has a strong tendency towards higher IQ over S
    T has a mild tendency towards higher IQ over F
    I has a slight tendency towards higher IQ over E
    There is no discernible IQ difference of J over P or P over J

    Can you elaborate on your research methods and sample sets?

    I've mostly ran across these articles while googling for mbti/iq correlation or browsing MBTI forums. Sample sets range from about 100 to a couple thousand.
    Here are some of the articles I drew conclusions on:
    Intelligence, Personality, Politics, and Happiness | POLITICS & PROSPERITY
    A Synthesis of Research on Psychological Types of Gifted Adolescents « SENG
    ...and countless others that I cannot locate, or weren't scientific enough.
    Also, some sources say that the I vs E dichtomy comes before the T vs. F. But I've seen slightly more of the opposite.

    In my opinion, your MBTI has nothing to do with your IQ. But anyway, I would guess either xNTP's or xNTJ's.

    Well I would think that IQ tests would measure a certain type of intelligence, an intelligence that would naturally be more easily utilized by N types. So on an IQ test intuitives would be more likely to thrive.

    ^ I second that, @Frosty6226

    Also, I think way too much stock is put in IQ tests. We're incredibly complex human beings, and there's a lot more to intelligence than what can be "determined" in one test. Besides, what does IQ actually do for us? If we get a high enough score, we can get into some elite little club? I don't think employers hire based on IQ. It's not like IQ can make or break a meaningful relationship. We hear all about IQ, IQ, IQ, but I just don't see the point. What matters is that we're good to ourselves and others, and that we continue advancing for the knowledge and good of humanity. You don't have to be in Mensa to do all those things.

    Just my opinion...

    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life

    However: If I was stating the truth that I'm kidding, would mean I'm not kidding, which would contradict the statement.




    But seriously, I'm just doing this for intellectual gambling.


    Why should I try you?
    I think you're a hoot.

    Seriously though, it all depends on the definition of "smart".

    Highest IQ: INTP
    Strategically the smartest: INTJ
    Smartest in business: ENTJ
    Wittiest: ENTP
    Socially the smartest (EQ): ENFP (?)
    Kinsthetically the smartest: xSTP

    Therefore there isn't exactly one smartest type.
    MBTI:
    Alignment: Chaotic-Neutral
    Sins: Pride > Sloth > Gluttony > Wrath > Greed > Lust > Envy

    It really depends on the question. Don't give me questions based on "unscramble" this word. But give me complicated math questions, complicated word questions, something where you actually apply problem solving abilities and I fly through those. Give me history questions or what does this word mean questions and its hit or miss as its based on knowledge, not actually figuring something out.

    I worked at Texas Instruments and the best Technician called everything doodads, whatcha macallits, thingymagigys, etc. But he knew exactly how everything interacted and worked together, he just didn't have a clue what it was called. He was a back woods, swamp living, sensor type that was hard to understand because of his accent. Highly intelligent person, but his verbal skills, etc. were lacking. He was the type that would call in hung over instead of call in sick. But he ran circles around the people who worked for the company that built the machines. We are talking 30-120 million dollar photolithography machines, not some simple mechanical machine.

    FWIW, I score very high on IQ tests and enjoy mensa workouts where you actually have to analyze and solve problems.

    I disagree with INTJ being strategically the smartest. As a group they really don't seem all that smart to me, @uumlau is the exception. In this group on TypeC I would say that he is the only INTJ I would think is smart enough to actually strategize successfully. While INTJ may be the type to strategize the most, I would not include smart into that equation. I apologize if I offend other INTJs.

    I don't see ENFPs as really paying enough attention to their surroundings socially to be the socially smartest.

    I do see ENTP as the typical Jester

    I see STJ as more book smart with STP being more use smart.
