Since our polling options are a little bit limited here, I've put up a little temp site with a questionaire that covers a wide spectrum of topics.
I'd like to see if there are correlations across the board for type in relation to childhood environments, birth order, religious upbringing, responsibilities etc, etc.
As we gather data with this questionaire I'll be posting back interesting and relevant findings.
The entire thing is completely anonymous, the answers come to me in a form via email where I can dissect and categorize in true INTJ fashion.
I would appreciate any who would take a few minutes to answer the questions (most are multiple choice) and if there are any suggestions for additional questions that you think might correlate to type please feel free to submit them with the last question.
Thanks! I'll update here soon once we have some data to work with.
Y'all are awesome.
P.S. - If you try to submit and it says the form cant be submitted right now, try again in a bit. I'm not sure how it will do if it gets a lot of traffic all at once!
Results will be updated and changed if needed as more data comes in. Trends noted below indicate an abnormal tendency in a particular direction for that question.
Abuse indicators –
Types that reported Emotional abuse are all xNxJ’s and more often reported by women
Types that reported Multiple abuse factors are all IxxP
Those who answered that they are not artistic are almost entirely N’s and Enneagram 5, grew up in a Small town and are less likely to want children.
Spiritual but not religious upbringing - are All IxxP and majority of those were INxP… and All of them are Single
No religious upbringing - are more likely to experiment or heavily use drugs (by a lot) BUT those who attended church were LESS LIKELY TO ANSWER THE QUESTION!
INTJs and INTPs make up nearly HALF of the Eldest Child category
Eldest children more often perceived financial difficulties in their home with the majority reporting lower middle class. Youngest children almost all report a perceived abundance of money.
The only rank to frequently report serious drug use were Eldest children where youngest children felt smothered more often than most
Eldest children reported high responsibility that they didn’t necessarily seek out
Every submission with reported drugs in the home are all P preference and High perceived income level. Majority of these listed experimental drug use themselves. Most were also college grads followed by closely by 'some college' and consider themselves lifelong learners and high honor students!
The vast majority of submissions with no indication of in-home drugs are single. The Vast majority of submissions with drugs in home are either in long term relationships or are married.
Current age did not seem to be a factor in either group
Experimental drug users are nearly all P’s and youngest children
Experimental drug users were ALL college grads or college attendees. (Majority were grads) They also consider themselves artistic by and large.
Only Eldest children have reported Serious drug use problems and of those, most also indicated Emotional abuse.
All of the serious drug users are also still single and dating…
All of the college grads consider themselves lifelong learners
High School completion only are all P’s and ALL have divorced parents. Age does not appear to be a factor
Almost every single Enneagram 5 is an INTP
Some percentages today:
46% of I's are 'Single and not looking' compared to .08% of E's
11% of J's reported a 'Responsibility Overload' as a child, compared to 25% of P's
45% of N's reported drug use compared to 25% of S's...
... 14% of N's reported Serious drug use compared to 0% of S's
Student Type Breakdown (N vs S):
*Not all available options are listed if responses were minimal
N = 43% High Honor 24% Honor 14% Minimal to get by
S = 13% High Honor 50% Honor 0 % Minimal to get by 25% Average
* Half of the minimalists were INTPs
High Honor students tended to have the MAJORITY of their type letters in I, N, T and J. This doesn't mean all of the INTJ's were High Honor, but that when broken down letter by letter, there were more I's, more N's, more T's and more J's in the High Honor category. This one is tentative though because we have more of those answering the quiz so far as well. Will update more on this if we get more data.
