    There is an interesting MBTI thread on an antisocial personality disorder forum. Almost everyone was TP.

    MBTI results for the anti-social : Antisocial Personality Disorder Forum

    I think ESTP and ISTP are the most common types in jail and the most common psychopathic types. Along with a good number of ENTP con-men. And INTP criminal architects.

    According to Robert Hare, they commit over 50% of the crime (that has victims) which is pretty staggering given the small percentage of their populous, yet makes sense given their temperament. Psychopaths actually have observable blood flow patterns in the brain, Hare has studied them in prisons. There is a good documentary about them on YouTube (sorry I don't remember the name of it)

    Exactly.

    I figured there was really no correlation. I more wanted to see what types would be viewed that way. Thank you guys for your input

    I have had a good view into narcassism as well as psychopathy and what it looks like.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    But in all seriousness, I'd believe that some ISFPs might have anger problems especially in really heavy situations. The combination of Fi/Se probably...but come on, let's face it, ISFPs are known for being pretty easygoing and down-to-earth as a whole. An ISFP psychopath would be a pretty rare thing to run into, I'd say.

    And we all know that INFJs are the real psychopaths here. Prototype is my case in point.

    It was in a great troll thread where someone was claiming most INFP males are sociopaths, which got a lot of members riled up, but the study was legitimate if I remember correctly.

    Psychopaths are quite common and mostly harmless. I've heard around ~1.5% of the population the most. Though I'm not sure exactly how they'd get such a statistic, as with all personality related measurements, the quantifiers are very vague.
    Yeah, I don't think it would be very surprising for sociopaths to fluff themselves up in prison... or for infps to get indignant over it.

    True Psychopath
    You scored 11 on Emotional Detachment and 14 on Chaotic Lifestyle!

    Congratulations, you are both emotionally detached, and you lead a chaotic lifestyle, which may indicate there's something seriously wrong with you. A combined score of 30 or more on this test supports a diagnosis of psychopathy. You are likely to commit, or already have commited, a crime. Stay away from knives, guns etc. although with your brilliant and versatile mind you will probably think of a dozen other ways of hurting whoever you feel like hurting.

    If your combined score is 5 or less, you are completely average compared to general population. If your combined score is 20 or more, you have a mind of a true criminal. If your combined score is 30 or more, you have a mind of a psycho.
