    ENFJs are rare too! There seem to be many more ENFPs for some reason (at least in my life). Also my ENTP partner seems to collect them. They are all female. Here's a brief list:

    Partner's adopted sister.
    His bestest friend in the UK (a vet).
    His bestest friend here in NZ (currently on maternity leave).
    Another close friend who flits back and forth between England and NZ (she is the flightiest ENFP I've ever met).
    At least three or four of his other past and present work colleagues.
    Three or four of their friends (now mine as well), including a lovely HR professional based in NZ, who is also MBTI accredited (she was my discovery - yay!).
    A great friend I met on an NLP course who works as a life-coach and shaman(!) in the UK.
    Oh, I almost forgot a really amazing ENFP work colleague and friend of mine, who recently had her picture on the front page of a major Auckland magazine, in relation to her hobby.

    I only know two ENFJs:

    A female Canadian vet who has recently relocated to Perth, Australia.

    My bestest male friend at my old workplace back in the UK. We still have a link that is best described as psychic. He's married with 3 kids and I'm gay, and I'm sure people thought we were having an affair, but neither of us cared - we were just on a very similar NFJ wavelength. He started out as my boss - the best kind of supportive, coach-type manager one could possibly wish for! (Oh dear, I'm starting to sound very gay again - you can see how the rumours started!).

    And I'd get him to swap our places,

    I don't know any ENTJ's come to think of it. Can you guys give me an idea of what they're like from experience?

    There's a great, well-balanced ENTJ scientist at my workplace. He is very witty and fast-thinking, but gets himself into terrible trouble with the top bosses by being controversial. For example, in meetings, he is the only one brave enough to say out loud what everyone else is thinking. I really like him, but apparently other people find him intimidating. Can't see it myself; they must be very dim not to see the sparkle in his eyes when he's trying to get a reaction out of someone who's taking themselves way too seriously!

    He has a tough exterior, but someone told me he suffers quite a lot of workplace-related stress, possibly because he dares to speak up on ethical issues. He doesn't suffer fools, that's for sure - his sees through bulls**t like a laser on steroids!

    NTJs are rare. That's not just because I'm one. Besides that, I don't know.

    The most common are probably Extraverted Sensors of all kinds.

    If you combine perceiving preference (S or N) with outer orientation (J or P) the most common combo seems to be SJ, and the least common NJ. There are national variations, but this general rule seems to hold up for most countries with known MBTI statistics. Here's a list with the most common combo at the top and the rest in descending order:

    SJ
    SP
    NP
    NJ

    Same list but with approximate percentages added, based on the figures for the USA. Please don't take these figures as Gospel - there hasn't been enough work done to truly validate them - but they are the best we have at present:

    SJ - 46%
    SP - 27%
    NP - 19%
    NJ - 8%

    This gives a J/P ratio of 54:46 and a S/N ratio of 73:27, which is in line with most other statistical studies carried out in the USA.

    I've seen the figures for the UK as well - I don't have them to hand, but they are surprisingly similar to the USA. The main differences were more Introverts (no surprises there), more SJs and fewer SP-types. I suspect many SPs probably fled (or were forcibly removed) to the British colonies during the SJ-dominated Victorian Empire.

    That sounds quite like an ENTP to me.

    EZRA, is anything apollanaut said true? What are you like, what do you do (how do you do) and what kind of things do you naturally gravitate towards....over than 9.8 straight down.
